Gratitude for Jubilate’s Adventure Awaits and Ad Book

On Saturday, 

March 23, 2024, JCA hosted and celebrated their 39th year of Jubilate, titled, Adventure Awaits.  Yes, and what an adventure it was!  Bolingbrook Golf Club was the venue for this fundraising event and our travel guides, Tracy & Brian Zabel and Nicole & Mike Murray took us to places on our bucket lists.  Michele & Kurt Christensen and Jennifer & Bryan Buss transformed the ballroom to a journey mecca.  There were airplanes hanging from the ceiling, hot air balloons on the walls and airplane backdrops along with pictures of travel destinations. 

Our guests were encouraged to dress in outfits from their favorite countries/cities with Sr. Peggy and Sr. Barb judging the best costumes.  Jubilate displayed over 150 auction items that were prepared by Katie & Ed Michel and Amy & Ken Mihelich.  There was something for everyone to bid on, from Blackhawk tickets on the ice to JCA Hilltopper and Angels’ lockers.  A couple of the highlights of the live auction were The Montana Ranch Adventure in Yellowstone and the Taylor Swift Guitar.

JCA awarded The Sisters of St. Francis of Mary Immaculate and The Carmelites of the Most Pure Heart of Mary the JCA Recognition Award for 2024.  After dinner, our guests swarmed the dance floor and bopped to the lively music of SODA.  Our enthusiastic student volunteers sold raffle tickets, cookies and helped our guests with their bidding devices.

Cash raffle prizes were awarded:

1st place – $10,000 – Dan Ward ‘55
2nd thru 6th Place – $1,000 – Pritz Family, Peggy & Ed Periu, Art Zakharov, Kris Payne & Colleen Quinn
