Last night members of the Kearney community - friends, parents and alumnae - gathered in the Rex Manor for the annual Gift Auction. Through their generosity, over $50,000 was raised to fund the gap between the actual cost to educate a student at Kearney today and the tuition.
An event like this could not happen without all the committee members who contributed their time, talent and expertise to make this Gift Auction such a success. A special thanks to the Committee Co-Chairs - Eileen Johnson, '81 and Catherine Rose '88; Parent Coordinators - Rosemary Hogg, Eileen Egan, Kerry O'Grady and Heather McCormick; Alunmae Chairs - Risa Lamia Baghdadi '75, Patricia Brannick '79, Rose Halaszynski Carofalo '85, Joan Messina Dombrowski '70, Roseann LoMacchio McGill '93, Barbara McCarthy Murphy '78, Linda Garbarini Pistilli '65 and Therese DeProssino Walsh '81; Gift Committee - Kathy McBride Lacitignola '76 - Chair; Denise Collins, Lorraine Donahue, Monica Holstrom, Anna Ingargiola, Tracy Jones-Walker, Maureen Pynn '80, Daniela Romano and Gina DeVito Smalley '88; Program/Decorating Committee Co-Chairs - Dina O'Hare Amatore '87 and Maria Mignone Aulisa '91. Thank you again for all you did to help make our event such a huge success.
Amazing prizes, delicious food and great company resulted in a wonderful time from start to finish. Those who attended said they are already looking forward to next year.
