FEST 2015 — Bourbon Street, held February 28, 2015 at Aronomink Country Club, raised more than $100,000 for Villa Maria thanks to the hard work of a dedicated crew of parent volunteers under the talented leadership of chairs Anna Cozzone and Linda Calderin. Guests enjoyed a fun and friendly evening surrounded by the colors of Mardi Gras. The silent auction, held during the cocktail hour, included beach items, elegant designer bags, artwork, and tickets to sporting events. Dinner was followed the live auction and Call from the Floor, during which donors pledged money for new sound and lighting equipment in the auditorium.
FEST — Fostering Educational Support Together — is the major fundraiser undertaken by the Villa Maria parent community in support of the school. The event is an opportunity to raise money for the school for such operating expenses as computers, software, science labs, and the campus security system. The Auction is also an opportunity for all parents, alumnae, faculty, staff, and students to build community and celebrate our common interest in the education of our children.
Congratulations and thanks to all of the volunteers who worked so tirelessly to create a beautiful and successful evening to benefit Villa Maria and the girls.
