Description:

For more than five decades, Saint Alexis School has been providing students with exceptional academics in a Christ-centered environment where teachers and students grow and learn together. To celebrate this ongoing commitment, and help raise money for the school’s operating budget, the school will be hosting its Annual Gala, Auction and Dinner on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at the Omni William Penn Hotel. This year’s theme is We Grow. Tickets are $75 per person with all proceeds directly benefiting Saint Alexis School. The reception and silent auction begins at 5:00 p.m., with dinner beginning at 7:00 p.m.

The gala tradition started 12 years ago and over the course of the past decade the event has helped fund technology upgrades such as Smart Board technology for the classrooms and tablets for the students—as well as upgrades to the school’s facilities, such as a new roof, bathrooms, water fountains and paint. This level of involvement and generosity is just one more way Saint Alexis families demonstrate their commitment to the school and the fostering of a caring, positive culture.

The 2015 event is co-chaired by Mark and Michel Conklin and Todd and Jennifer Salac. Scott Harbaugh, WPXI meteorologist, will be the master of ceremonies. Sherman Hostetter of Hostetter Auctioneers will lead the live auction.

The Annual Saint Alexis School Gala, Auction and Dinner is presented with generous support from sponsors and businesses throughout the greater Pittsburgh area. Auction prizes include sports memorabilia, tickets to sporting and cultural events, and vacation packages. Please contact mhconklin@gmail.com with any questions regarding the event, including how to donate.
