FACE Fall Scholarship Dinner
October 1 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This is the 25th annual Fall Scholarship Dinner hosted by FACE -the Foundation to Advance Catholic Education. The Dinner brings together community members from Southeastern Massachusetts to raise much needed scholarship funds for Catholic school children in need. All proceeds from the Fall Dinner go directly to student scholarships across the Fall River Diocese.
The featured speaker at this year’s Fall Dinner will be pro football player Matthew Slater, a three-time world champion and special teams captain for New England. A graduate of a Catholic high school in his native California, Slater has a strong record off the field in community service and outreach. In 2013 was selected to receive the Ron Burton Community Service Award from the New England Patriots organization.
In the 2018-2019 school year, FACE provided $1.3 million in scholarships to 925 students enrolled in a Catholic school in the Fall River Diocese. FACE uses an outside service, FACTS, to determine financial need so that every situation can be fairly assessed for scholarship opportunity.
