All Events

List of 7 items.

  • Evening of Style

    The Evening of Style is a great night for fashion, food, fellowship and fun. Tables of eight enjoy a catered meal, assorted drinks and a style show modeled by our own DCHS students, faculty and staff members. Each table uses their creativity to decorate their table with their own theme. There are only 30 tables available for the Evening of Style and this event does sell out. You can reserve your table even if you haven’t confirmed all of your tablemates. We look forward to seeing you February 9, 2023 at St. Boniface Church.

  • The Bash on Buffalo

    The Bash on Buffalo will be held on April 15, 2023. The Bash is our annual school year end celebration and auction and features silent and live auctions with over 100 items, mystery wine pull, restaurant row and a cash raffle drawing.

    Proceeds from the Bash go directly towards supporting teacher and student needs along with teacher retirement, staff development, technology and tuition assistance. Thank you for investing in Dowling Catholic High School!
  • Golf Outing

    Over 190 alumni, parents, faculty and sponsors participated in the 44th annual DCHS Golf Outing on August 1, 2022. This day of fellowship and fun also raised approximately $45,000 for the Coppola Family Endowment which provides tuition assistance for our students. Thank you to everyone that supported this event with their time, talent and treasure. We look forward to seeing you on the course again next year!
