An informal formal evening of fun

20th Anniversary Spirit Gala!

On Saturday, November 4th, Mercy celebrated our Spirit Gala’s 20th Anniversary. It was a wonderful evening celebrating Our Lady of Mercy and the young women who make this school so very special. The honorees, auctions, entertainment, music, food, dancing and especially you made it so much fun. Funds raised at this year’s event will support financial aid, scholarships, facility upgrades, and equipment purchases as well as enhance Mercy’s collaborative spaces.

With your help, we raised more than $260,000!


Thank You, Past Gala Chairs!

2023 marks the 29th Anniversary of Mercy’s Spirit Gala! We wanted to take this year to show our appreciation to all the past past Gala chairs who had the initiative to start the Gala and to all those who have kept it going. Their support and dedication means the world to us and we are truly grateful!
