Columbia owners give $1M to Jesuit High
The Gonzmart family, owners of the historic Columbia Restaurant, is giving $1 million to Jesuit High School, the largest alumni gift in the school's 114-year history.
The Gonzmarts have three graduates of the all-male Catholic high school: Casey Gonzmart (1965), Richard Gonzmart (1971) and Casey Gonzmart Jr. (2002). Charlie Gonzmart is a freshman.
The school will recognize the Gonzmarts' contribution during halftime ceremonies of the Jesuit vs. Trinity Catholic football game on Oct. 11. The game begins at 7:30 p.m. at Corral Memorial Stadium on campus.
The family also is the premier sponsor of the annual Fr. Richard G. Hartnett Memorial Golf Classic, which benefits Jesuit students on financial aid.
