The Main Event/FAQs

What is the Soirée?

The NCA Soirée is Northside Catholic Academy’s largest annual fundraiser. This year’s gala will include casino-themed games, a live and silent auction, raffles, and more! While you’re bidding and playing, enjoy food, drinks, music, and dancing in a spectacular lakefront venue.


The 16th annual NCA Soirée will be held at the Theater on the Lake, located at 2401 N. Lake Shore Drive, on Saturday, February 26, 2022.

Why should I attend the Soirée?

At its core, the NCA Soirée is dedicated to reaching our goal of raising over $100,000 to support the NCA Guardian Angel Scholarship Fund and many academic and facility improvements. In addition to a great cause, it’s a time to celebrate our community with family and friends. And it’s a rare opportunity to enjoy a fun night on the town in the company of other adults only!

What is the attire?

Our venue, Theater on the Lake, is a beautiful historic building offering breathtaking views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Cocktail attire is recommended, but please feel free to come as you are!

How can I help?

The Soirée is volunteer-based and requires help on so many different levels. We need assistance with planning, organizing, set up, clean up, working the registration table, soliciting donations and sponsorships, and more. Please reach out and let us know how you can get involved. It takes a village!
