St. Mary’s Academy's signature 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.
St. Mary’s Academy Fundraising Events
- Annual Auction – Thank you to everyone who attended the 25th anniversary St. Mary's Academy auction on April 13, 2013, at the Oregon Convention Center. Silver Revelry was a wonderfully fun and inspirational event. Thanks to the immense generosity of our supporters, we raised more than $800,000, making Silver Revelry the most successful auction in St. Mary’s history.
- Food for Thought Luncheon – supporting the Tuition Assistance Program. Thank you to everyone who joined us on Nov. 30 at the downtown Portland Hilton for a very moving and successful Food for Thought Tuition Assistance Luncheon. Your generosity and support make all the difference in fulfilling our commitment to providing $1.16 million in tuition assistance to 42 percent of our students this year.
- Blues Bridge Walk – An opportunity for students to show their pride for St. Mary’s. Participation in the Blues Bridge Walk allows students to share with others what SMA means to them, while giving back to our school. This year’s walk took place on Oct. 11 and raised a record-breaking $80,000-plus. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event such a success.
