An Evening at the Academy — Igniting Hope, Jan. 28, 2017

2017 marked our 2nd annual gala evening supporting St. Mary’s Academy Bursary Fund. The fundraising dinner was a sold out success, raising over $87,000 for the Mother Marie-Rose Durocher Bursary Fund.

Once again, the event was staged in various locations throughout the campus. Guests were led through time and space, starting with Prosecco and appetizers in the historic 1902 building on 550 Wellington Crescent. In the 1963 dining hall, guests enjoyed dinner, a live auction, the launch of our Legacy & Hope Campaign, and the You had me at Merlot wine raffle. The evening culminated with entertainment and lively conversation in the 2013 Sheila Chipman Atrium.

Thank You

We're so grateful to you — our guests, table package purchasers, event hosts, sponsors and donors whose generosity contributed to the evening. Thanks to the many volunteers, both students and community, who made our vision a reality! You made a difference by lighting the way for deserving students.
