Food for Thought is one of St. Mary’s Academy’s signature fundraising events and is at the heart of the school’s mission, allowing us to provide an excellent college-preparatory education to any young woman who desires it, regardless of financial circumstances. More than $1.7 million in financial aid has been committed for the 2015-2016 school year to 39 percent of St. Mary’s Academy families and funding for financial aid is one of the school’s greatest needs.
This year’s Food for Thought Luncheon features Brandi Chastain. A former member of the U.S. women's national soccer team, two-time FIFA World Cup champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist Brandi Chastain is best known for her game-winning penalty kick against China in the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup final and her famously photographed celebration. Chastain is the author of It’s Not About the Bra: Play Hard, Play Fair, and Put the Fun Back Into Competitive Sports.
