The “Celebrate the Gift of Brilliance” Holiday Party was a great success! Approximately 150 guests filled John D. McGurk’s back patio to help raise more than $18,000 in high school tuition dollars for ACCESS students.
Two activities were key in raising donations over the course of the evening, with the first being the “High School Scholarship Fund Challenge,” which encourages guests to make a donation on behalf of their alma mater and/or their child(ren)’s current school. Alums from Christian Brothers College High School raised the most donations on behalf of their alma mater, and will have bragging rights for the next year. The second activity was the “staycation” raffle, which was awarded to Mimi Baumstark. As the winner, she receives a one night stay at the Four Seasons- Saint Louis, a spa package, and breakfast for two at Cielo.
