On Saturday, February 6, Mother McAuley hosted Celebration - our annual benefit to support tuition assistance for students. With more than 300 guests in attendance, and the honoring of three alumnae for their outstanding service to the school and community, we truly had much to Celebrate. We are very pleased to share that Celebration festivities generated a record-breaking number of proceeds.
