If the cost of sending your children to Catholic school makes you hesitant, there may be a solution to that.

The non-profit organization Futures In Education provides financial aid and scholarships to those who need it.

The organization held a fundraiser Tuesday night to raise money to help send more children to Catholic schools in the Diocese of Brooklyn.

After the tables were set for dinner and a show, students from Midwood Catholic Academy got the party started at Cipriani’s.

“What a great night the Lord has given us,” said Bishop Robert Brennan, who was in attendance for the night’s festivities. 

Students from St. Patrick Catholic Academy also showed off their talents and showed the donors in the room how great a Catholic education can be.

After receiving donations, they gave thanks to some special honorees, which included NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell, FDNY Commissioner Laura Kavanaugh, Peter Golia, Barbara Naclerio, and Alejandro Monteverde.

The event raised $2.2 million for Futures In Education.
