St. Mary’s Academy's fundraising events include the Blues Bridge Walk Student Fundraiser in the fall, the Food for Thought Tuition Assistance Luncheon in November and our spectacular annual auction. These events provide both elegant and fun avenues through which alumnae, parents, students and friends support our school. St. Mary’s is especially grateful for the many volunteers who tirelessly contribute their time, talents and treasures to make our fundraising events enjoyable for all.
Blues Bridge Walk – The 2015 Blues Bridge Walk, held on October 8, was a raging success. St. Mary's Academy students raised a record-breaking amount of money – more than$113,000 – in support of the school's annual student-led fundraiser. The Blues Bridge Walk allows students to create a culture of philanthropy in their lives while supporting their school. Students collect donations, spread the word about why they love St. Mary’s, and participate in the culminating, three-mile Blues Bridge Walk over the Steel and Hawthorne bridges. Read more here.
