Celebration 2016

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 report that Celebration festivities generated a record-breaking number of proceeds!

Thank you to the many members of our McAuley family who supported this event. Whether you joined the festivities, bid online during our auction, or simply made a donation, we truly are thankful and blessed by your generosity and belief in the lifetime advantage of a Mother McAuley education. Your support makes every day a celebration for our students.  

To learn first-hand the impact of your support, we invite you to watch the above video which was shown during Celebration. You’ll see and hear from students and from many of their parents, what a McAuley education means to them.
