Spirit Gala a Huge Success!
Nearly 400 people were in attendance at Mercy’s 1920s-themed Spirit Gala on April 30, 2022 – the highest grossing Gala in our school’s history! Hosted at the school in the beautifully decorated Kathleen Bonsignore Walgreen Gymnasium, Middle School Gymnasium, and the Catherine McAuley Gallery, the Spirit Gala is the premier fundraising event of the Mercy calendar. Each year, the event attracts local business leaders, parents, alumnae, elected officials, Sisters of Mercy, faculty, Board of Trustees members, and others to celebrate Mercy’s successes and contribute financially to its future. Funds raised at the 2022 Gala will support tuition scholarships, equipment purchases, facilities upgrades, as well as provide the funding for Mercy’s expanding STEM Initiative. Awardees at the event included the Gugino Family who were presented with the Sister Mary Francesca Award for Service to the Mercy Community, the late Sandy Parker and her husband Dutch Summers who were presented with the Catherine McAuley Philanthropy and Vision Award, and the late Ron and Catherine Anderson and Family who were announced as our Circle Honorees. Special thanks to our 2022 Spirit Gala chairs Susan and John DiMarco P’26, future Mercy parents Dr. Ashley Amalfi ’02 and Dr. Thomas Frye, and Rachel and Michael Monile P’21 ’23 for helping make this a very successful Gala!
