THANK YOU for making 2019 a huge success! 

We are grateful to all who joined us for our 2nd Annual Lansing Catholic Corks + Cuisine event on Saturday, January 26 at Impression 5 Science Center.  It was a wonderful night and we were delighted to welcome such a fantastic group of parents, past and present; as well as alumni, friends and special guests of Lansing Catholic.

A BIG thank you to those who supported Corks + Cuisine as we raised over $73,000 to implement a school security measure called The SmartBoot System from The Lockout Co.  It is a truly unique and effective school saftey and security system designed to protect students and staff, deter potential threats and assist law enforcement when an event occurs. 

Nearly 300 attendees, gathered to savor the delicious samplings of food and drink from area eateries while enjoying the fun activities, great music and live auction.  This is an amazing event where guests can have a casual, relaxed evening with our Catholic community to connect and socialize, but most importantly to have fun!  We look forward to seeing you in 2020!!!   To view and purchase photos from Corks + Cuisine, visit:

We’d also like to express our gratitude to our sponsors and volunteers.  They were the driving force in making this event possible.  We couldn’t have done it without you!
