What is All Out Irish Day?

All Out Irish Day aims to unite the Cathedral Community around the world in a 24-hour online celebration. Through the power of social media and individuals like you, All Out Irish Day will be an opportunity to connect the Irish in one effort - to express their Irish pride and to participate in the Centennial Campaign, a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Why Does It Matter

Cathedral only turns 100 once.  This is a special opportunity to participate with the Cathedral community and share your #alloutirish pride. The Centennial Campaign is the tipping point for Cathedral that will stimulate the next 100 years of continued excellence.  We are honoring those who have come before us and blessing those who come after us.

What is the Ambassador Team

If you loved your Cathedral experience and are excited to share what makes you a proud Irish, the Ambassador Team is perfect for you! This team is made up of passionate alumni, friends, parents, employees, students, and retired faculty that are excited to celebrate the impact Cathedral has made on their life. The Ambassador Team will help spread buzz about All Out Irish Day, be highlighted on the Cathedral website, and encourage other friends of Cathedral to make a gift of any size on April 30 to make an impact on current students.

Will I really make an impact by becoming an Ambassador?

YES! And here is how:  The more people spreading the word, the better! A personalized call-to-action from a friend or classmate is one of the most effective tools to engage individuals.  Cathedral’s social media accounts reach thousands of people but not everyone follows Cathedral High School. With your help of simply posting or sharing an All Out Irish Day post, we are able to reach hundreds more alumni and friends.  Your voice is unique! In a world full of opinions, use your voice to inspire positivity and generosity. Your enthusiasm will encourage others to support the next generation of Cathedral students who need your help.

How do I become an Ambassador?

Click here or contact Abbe Ernstes, by April 10, 2019 and start sharing on social media why you are #alloutirish today!

As an ambassador, what do I do?

1. Make a gift on All Out Irish Day to support 100 years of Cathedral.

2. Encourage friends of the Cathedral Community to celebrate All Out Irish Day and make a gift.

3. Share your Cathedral pride on social media using the hashtag #Alloutirish and help spread the buzz about All Out Irish Day!

What is #alloutirish all about?

The official hashtags for social media will be #AlloutIrish and #GivetoCathedral. After you make your gift, share that you #GivetoCathedral because of the enormous impact it has made in your life or for someone you know. Please use this theme and hashtag in all of your tweets and posts so members of our Cathedral Community can retweet, favorite, and add to the buzz. Inspire others to make a gift!

What if I am not well connected on social media?

You can spread the word by texting, emailing, or calling your Cathedral friends and classmates. You would be amazed at the power a personal message can bring. If you are interested in contacting a specific group (sports teams, retired faculty, specific club members, etc.) we are happy to share updated contact information with you to help.

I've already given this year. Why should I make a gift?

All Out Irish Day is a great way to demonstrate your Irish pride and continue your support of current students. If you have given this year, thank you! Making another gift on All Out Irish Day will not only increase your impact on students but will also help unlock additional challenge gifts of $20,500 that are only available for this day of giving!
