Welcome Welcome to the 6th Annual Blaze of Glory Gala! These festivities give us the opportunity to come together and celebrate the families and friends that make this Tolton community so strong. However, even more important than the fun that we have, are the funds that we raise. We are committed to sustaining this wonderful Catholic high school for families from all works of life and for many generations to come. Your presence here tonight helps make that goal a reality. Thank you for being here and for supporting us in our mission to shape young people in spirit, heart, mind, and body.
