Lincoln Pius X Catholic High School

bolt gala


BOLT (Building Outstanding Leaders Today) is Pius X High School’s single largest fundraiser of the year. For 37 years, BOLT has supported Pius X High School’s mission and has worked to Restore All Things in Christ by financing capital improvements, which maintains affordable tuition for all students and their families.

Funds raised at our BOLT 2023 event will go toward our new secure front entrance and welcome center!

New Front Entrance and Welcome Center

The new front entry design will enhance the experience of school visitors through a centralized ‘Welcome Center’ that beautifully integrates with the school’s existing architecture, including security glass that offers high visibility and increased safety.

Lottery Tickets

An easy way to support Pius X through BOLT – whether or not you can attend, is by purchasing a lottery ticket. Three cash prizes will be awarded, including a $10,000 top prize, drawn the night of the event. Lottery tickets are sold by Pius X students, committee members, and the Foundation office. You may request lottery tickets using the button below, and choosing to pay via Venmo, mailing in a check, or with cash.

How adult and students can get involved

Sell Lottery Tickets

Prizes are awarded for the top 3 sellers ($300, $200, $100), and the seller of the winning ticket also wins $100. Turn in the right portion of the ticket with payment to the Foundation office.

Volunteer at the event

Additional opportunities are available to sell BOLT Lottery Tickets and beads (used for a fun event during the gala) to our event attendees. Earn volunteer hours while you take part in a festive evening.
