39th Annual Knight of the Gael Honored Dr. Jeffrey Davidson

On Thursday, March 24th parents, alumni, and friends gathered to honor Dr. Jeffrey Davidson at the 39th Annual Knight of the Gael. With over 500 guests, we celebrated this very special member of our BGHS community. As a result of Dr. Davidson's counsel and guidance, our schools were able to remain open and parishes functioning, over the past two years.  We are grateful for his service to the Diocese of Las Vegas and Bishop Gorman High School during these unprecedented times.

We couldn’t have done it without the help of our partners, Red Rock Resort Casino and Spa, Station Casinos, Breakthru Beverage Nevada, Encore, Michael E. Minden, and Five Star Creative.

Thanks to all of our sponsors, especially our Presenting Sponsor: The Collins Family, Zilla Consulting LLC. Our Platinum Sponsors: Cindy and Gary Ellis ’78 and Family, The Families of Frank ’80 and Lorenzo ’87 Fertitta, Golden Entertainment, The Tony and Renee Marlon Charitable Foundation, Mary Alice (Bauchman ’80) and Scott Nielson, South Point, and Sandee and Tito ’63 Tiberti. Our Gold Sponsors: AMR and MedicWest Ambulance, Buckley Wealth Management, Dignity Health St. Rose Dominican, Diocese of Las Vegas, Kathie & Al ’68 Faccinto, Jr., St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church/St. Anthony of Padua School, Sally and Michael ’86 Gaughan, Jr., Carolyn Sue (Brady ’84) and T.J. Matthews ’83, Jackie and John ’97 Miller, The Kenneth J. Sullivan Family, UFC, Valley Health System, Mylene & Brian ’92 Vicuna, and Ann (Stella ’87) and Dana White.

A very special thanks to our student performers that helped make the evening extra special. Thank you to Mrs. Elena Ferrante-Martin and the Golden Gaels; the BGHS String Ensemble; BGHS Drum Line; Mr. Jimmy Gleich '01 & the Associated Student Government (ASG) students, and the evening’s announcer, Alexandra Rudnitsky '24.
We look forward to seeing you at the 40th Annual Knight of the Gael in 2023!
