Like many events this year, the 16th Annual Gary Vanselow Memorial Fish Fry, scheduled for the spring of 2021, will not be held due to Covid-19 precautions. 

Although we will miss being together in-person for this great RCS community event, we invite you to show your support by making a gift to the Vanselow Scholarships! 

The event has raised a total of nearly $190,000 for the Vanselow Scholarships since it first began in 2006 and has helped provide tuition assistance to more than 37 students at RCS.

The scholarships, established through Lourdes Foundation, help students in financial need receive a faith-based education at Rochester Catholic Schools. The Vanselow Family Scholarship benefits students in preschool - grade 8, and the Gary Vanselow Memorial Scholarship helps students in grades 9-12.

Thank you for your support of Catholic education!
