The rockin’ 80s music may be over, but the platinum success of our “Mayfield Rocks!” Benefit tops the generosity charts in support of our totally awesome school!
The benefit stands as one for the record books:
We had record attendance, with more than 330 guests arriving at the Annandale Country Club decked out in permed hair, leg warmers, strategically ripped jeans, and AC/DC rocker tee-shirts.
Our paddle raise exceeded expectations, garnering $94,375 for SmartBoard technology in our science classrooms and new mobile classroom furnishings that facilitate collaboration.
We were big-time thrilled to honor our beloved “Tede,” Kathleen Clougherty Regan ’64, who has journeyed with Mayfield for nearly 60 years and whose generosity has supported every major campus initiative.
The net profit for the night totalled $212,015, a testament to the generous gifts of Mayfield supporters.
“I’m so deeply grateful for our community’s support of this incredible school and the memorable time we shared at the benefit,” said Head of School Kate Morin (who sported the coolest ever Mayfield red boots). “The Holy Child education we give our girls is transformational and so much of what we are able to offer stems from your gifts.”
The best part of the night? Everyone partied like superfans, forging a strong sense of community and friendship!
Our benefit co-chairs, Amy Kessel (Chloe ’19 and Carly ’14) and Michelle Brooks (Madison ’20), expressed deep thanks to their tireless benefit committee and Page Malloy, whose organizing expertise made the party happen.
The committee worked incredibly well together said Amy and Michelle, who described their work as “an incredible experience that made for a memorable and timeless bond” among all those involved.
