Signature Events


Each year our advancement team hosts signature events in support of the NDP Fund. They are Culinary Festival, Golf Tournament, Mardi Gras Giving Day and the Auction Fashion Show. The NDP Fund raises money for immediate school needs and has a direct impact on the overall student experience.

We hope you will participate in these exciting community events:

Culinary Festival | November 16, 2024

Celebrated restaurants from around the Valley are featured under the stars on the NDP campus to delight guests with their signature dishes. This is an evening of music, food and fun. Booths from these local restaurant are staffed by expert chefs happy to share their culinary tastings with our guests. Held in the fall, the ease and flow of this event creates a casual atmosphere conducive to catching up with long-time friends and alumni, and making new acqaintances. 

Golf Tournament | December 9, 2024

The NDP Golf Tournament is a school tradition. Held at a luxurious Grayhawk golf course, the annual tournament is designed for golfers of all abilities. It is an 18-hole shot gun start with four person scramble format. The emphasis is on camaraderie and enjoyment for the benefit of the NDP Fund. The event concludes with the Shot of Glory Competition  (closest to the pin) and post-golf party.

Mardi Gras Giving Day | March 4, 2025 (Tuesday before Ash Wednesday)

The Annual Mardi Gras Giving Day is a true celebration of our students (past and present) and all the wonderful programs that make Notre Dame Prep special. The day is filled with a student-produced livestream on YouTube featuring stories about students, alumni, the arts, athletics and much more! We ask everyone in our community to #giveitup4NDP!

Auction & Fashion Show  | May 10, 2025

Our gala auction fashion show includes silent and live auctions with amazing items. The featured entertainment for the event is provided by graduating seniors in a fashion show complete with three runways, music and videos. The evening is festive, fun and the proceeds support the NDP Fund.
