The 13th annual Salute to THE GAME fundraising event, hosted by the Catholic Education Foundation, raised an all-time record amount of $500,000, $50,000 more than last year.
The event — which celebrates the “rivalry and thrill” of the annual St. Xavier High School and Trinity High School football game — aired on WAVE 3’s Listens Live!, hosted by John Ramsey. This year’s Salute event attracted 30,000 viewers.
Since its inception, the event has raised more than $3.2 million, all of which is used to benefit the CEF in its work to support Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Louisville.
The rivalry game is set for Oct. 2 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Xavier High School’s Brother Thomas More Page Stadium.
