Cheers To Volunteers! – Shannon and Dr. Patrick Lillis

Shannon and Dr. Patrick Lillis were the chairmen of the Catholic Education Foundation’s Gaudeamus event for two years in a row. The hardworking couple recruited volunteers and committee members, coordinated all of the details of the events and hosted dozens of planning sessions in their home. Under Shannon and Patrick’s leadership, the 2017 event raised $1.1 million, and the 2018 event raised $1.2 million for scholarship funds. Patrick has served on CEF’s board of directors since 2014.
