This evening event is held to coincide with a home football game and features a barbeque, a moon bounce for the children, and a chance for parents and alumni to mingle before cheering on the St. Mary’s Varsity Football team as they play on St. Mary’s Turf Field In Honor of Robert A. Pascal.
Halloween Movie Night
Children and parents alike enjoy this evening of popcorn and a Halloween themed movies (one short and one feature-length) for kids in Marian Hall. We even give away the DVDs at the end of the evening!
Annual Auction & Dinner
For 25 years, St. Mary’s has been setting the standard for school auctions with our annual themed event which in the last 10 years alone has raised over 1.5 million dollars for the Fleur de Lis Fund for the school’s top funding priorities. Guests participate in silent and live auctions featuring hundreds of items. The evening is organized by dedicated group of parent volunteers. Recent themes have included: “Fleur de Luau,” “Fiesta de Santa Maria,” and “Atlantis.” Sponsorships and advertisements are a vital part of this event.
Black Friday Alumni Lacrosse Game
While some go out shopping, a team of St. Mary’s alumni take on archrival Severn in a game of lacrosse. The home field advantage alternates between teams. St. Mary’s share of the proceeds are given to the Kevin Reichardt Foundation, named in honor of an alumnus who distinguished himself on and off field, which awards scholarships to St. Mary’s students.
A little more than a weekend but a little shorter than a week, we pack as many events a possible into this alumni-oriented celebration. We have “Generations of Saints” breakfast for alumni who have children currently attending St. Mary’s Schools. We also hold an Distinguished Alumni Awards ceremony where we honor graduates who have distinguished themselves by their service to St. Mary’s, their accomplishment in their professional field, recognize an outstanding young alumnus, as well as recognizing an honorary alumnus, someone who didn’t graduate from the school but who has made an invaluable contribution to the school. Included in the festivities are the Elementary School’s Fun Fair, an alumni lacrosse game, as well as an Alumni Mass and brunch.
