Four weeks ago, we had to cancel our live 2020 Setting Our Hearts Gala. We asked you to stick with us, as we moved the Gala online (because "The Mission Still Matters"), and our committee and our community responded with enthusiasm and generosity.
While nothing can replace the very personal connections and memories made annually at our live Gala, we are immensely grateful for the support that allows us to tell you that our 2020 online Gala was another Feehan success.
- More than 700 ticket buyers said "please keep the dollars and help Feehan" when we offered to refund ticket purchases.
- Nearly every sponsor said the same thing, as their live sponsorships turned to online sponsorships.
- More than 200 friends of Feehan bid in our online auction and donated to our "Mission Moment" in support of our faculty.
Success Stats and News:
- Congratulations to Rosemary Jones '66, who won the $10,000 Cash Raffle. (You can watch a video of the raffle being pulled here.)
- Because of your support, we raised more than $330,000 in our online Gala model. That wonderful generosity means the Gala will provide its usual support to Feehan and its students and faculty despite our unusual times. What a blessing!
- We still have some work to do in honoring our 2020 Sister Pat Harrington RSM Hero of Catholic Education award winner, Father David Costa. We plan to do that at our 2020 graduation ceremony in May.
- We continue to pray for our entire Feehan community and the world during this difficult time. As always, please let us know if we can be of service to you. Thank you again for your commitment to Feehan.
God Bless & Go Shamrocks
