Tuesday evening members of the Kearney community - friends, family and alumnae - gathered at the Rex Manor for the annual Gift Auction. The evening was filled with fun, laughter and excitement. With over 300 people in attendance, a record $120,000 was raised. The proceeds will be used to continue our goal of keeping tuition below $10,000 for the next academic school year and maintaining our cutting edge 21st century education for all of our students.
For the first time, an exciting component, a Live Auction with a skilled professional auctioneer, was included in the evenings program. Some of the Live Auction items were Yankee Field Level Club Seats, a foursome at the Hempstead Golf & Country Club, tickets to a Luxury Suite at Fenway Park, and a BBQ in Bishop Kearney’s private garden with our very own chef and former faculty member, Jerry Franza
