LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville’s Catholic Education Foundation says it has set a fundraising record for its annual luncheon ahead of the Trinity-St. Xavier high school football game.

The luncheon at the Galt House attracted 1,300 guests and raised about $225,000, surpassing last year’s total of $202,000.

The rivalry football game will be played Friday at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, and it annually attracts thousands of fans.

Guests at the Tuesday luncheon heard a keynote speech from Kirk Herbstreit of ESPN’s “College Gameday.”

The foundation raises money for Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Louisville.
