G.O.L.F.'s second event is an annual Super Bowl raffle. The net proceeds from this event provide financial assistance for one or two Cristo Rey students to attend a Jesuit College or University.
Cristo Rey Jesuit High School provides a Catholic, college preparatory education and professional work experience to students from Spanish speaking families with limited financial means. Cristo Rey is able to offer this type of education because of its most innovative component: the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP). All students work five days a month in entry-level jobs in Chicago firms to fund nearly 70% of the cost of their education. Currently, 140 corporations such as Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., Big Shoulders Fund, CNA, Leo Burnett Worldwide, Mesirow Financial, Winston & Strawn LLP, and others participate in CWSP. Now in its 22nd year, every one of Cristo Rey's graduating seniors is accepted to at least one college. Today, 91% of Cristo Rey graduates are currently attending or have completed college.
