Thank you to all who joined the students, faculty, and staff of St. Jean Baptiste High School on May 3 to celebrate nearly a century of transformative education on Manhattan's Upper East Side. We are particularly grateful to the many donors–both those who attended and those who celebrated with us in spirit–for your generous donations in support of the event and the students of St. Jean’s. The Scholarship Gala raised $770,000 for scholarships and financial aid. Your generosity has helped to ensure that young women of diverse backgrounds and abilities will continue to have access to a rigorous secondary school education and to the colleges and universities that open their doors to them because of that education.

We are blessed to have such an illustrious group come together to promote and support our jewel of a school. Thank you to Gala Chairs Roger and Anne Cooper, our Planning Committee, Board of Trustees, students, faculty, and staff for ensuring the evening went off without a hitch. Special appreciation goes to our honorees Frances F. Townsend and the Congregation de Notre Dame as well as to our host, NY Times bestselling author Adriana Trigiani.
