The entire Saint Joseph High School community, including alumni, parents, friends and community partners are invited to Fourth Annual Green Tie Gala. 

Proceeds from the event will be directed to The Saint Joseph Annual Fund, allowing us to continue our tradition of excellence in educating and forming young men. The Saint Joseph Annual Fund supports essential areas of the Saint Joseph journey, including academics, clubs & activities, and athletics. The Fund also provides scholarship and needs-based financial assistance to allow more deserving young men to experience the Saint Joe's journey.

Consider celebrating the Saint Joe's difference as we highlight our honoree and the collective generosity of the extended Falcon Family!

Honoring John P. Shibles '65

The Fourth Annual Green Tie Gala honors John P. Shibles '65.

John has been a real estate investor, entrepreneur and philanthropist for over 50 years. After graduating from Saint Joseph High School in the founding class of 1965, Shibles went on to earn an economics degree from Quincy University and a Masters in Business Administration from Pace University. Shibles has owned or partnered in 47 projects including houses and condos, as well as retail partnerships with Home Depot, CVS and Chipotle.

As a philanthropist, Shibles supports numerous charities and organizations. During Saint Joe’s capital campaign in 2003, he designed and funded the Memorial Courtyard, dedicated to those Brothers of the Sacred Heart and Partners in Mission that have served the school, as well as the 9/11 Memorial which honors fallen alumni. This past year, Shibles made a major gift to benefit the Saint Joseph Robotics Program.

As we celebrate the Year of Excellence, we recognize that these are some exciting times at Saint Joseph High School. We have award winning academics, championship caliber athletic programs, nationally recognized clubs & activities and a Campus Ministry organization that rivals no other. 

The Saint Joseph Annual Fund supports many of these initiatives every year, including more than $1 Million in scholarships and need-based financial aid to more than half of our students this school year. Despite our successful funding of academics, athletics and clubs & activities, Saint Joseph High School still needs more. 

This year's Green Tie Gala will include a live fundraising event, as well as a pre-pledge if unable to attend.


Consider the contacts you have to increase our community support and enhance the essential areas of the Saint Joseph student experience, including academics, clubs & activities and athletics, and providing Need-Based Financial Assistance.

If you are interested in sponsoring the Third Annual Green Tie Gala, please fill out one of the registration forms on this page or email Nancy Alfano, the Saint Joe's Director of Advancement, at
