Mercy Spirit Gala
MERCY'S 10TH ANNIVERSARY SPIRIT GALA
Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women celebrated our 10th Annual Spirit Gala weekend on November 16th and 17th. Family Fun Night set record breaking attendance. Hosted by Annette Ramos and Rosanna Calascibetta, the night was filled with a money booth, photo booth, hair feathering, games and crafts for the younger kids. All enjoyed the concession stands with pizza from Cam's and many other yummy treats. The teens relaxed upstairs in the coffee house listening to fellow teens performing acoustical arrangements showcasing their amazing talents. The parents enjoyed the luxury of chair massages and decadent desserts in the adult gathering area.
Mercy Spirit Gala: Saturday night the Albert and Eva Bonsignore Family Athletic Center and the Catherine McAuley Gallery were transformed into a festive "Roaring Twenties" celebration.
