Thank you for your participation in our wonderful Fiesta on the Hill, our 41st Gala celebration held on Saturday evening, May 5, 2018 at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy.

Thank you for your support!

Thank you for your participation in our wonderful Fiesta on the Hill, our 41st Gala celebration held on Saturday evening, May 5, 2018 at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy. Each year, our Gala chairs, in company with Brigitta Carlsson, our special events manager, and our advancement team, work together to create an amazing event intended to support our mission on the Hill. This year is was no different!
Special thanks to our Gala chairs, Karen Peterson and Melina Pyle, who with a wonderful Gala committee brought this special night together in a spirit of music and color! Their commitment and dedication to Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and our mission is a blessing beyond measure.  We are deeply grateful to each of them for the time, talent and treasure they are sharing with us.
The benefits of this special night were to raise the necessary funds to create a 21st century campus that meets the academic and co-curricular needs of all our students. The silent auction, live auction, games and raffle and the paddle raise will allow us to continue the work of renovating our classrooms and providing beautiful learning spaces for our young women. Our newest classrooms have been a great success; we want to complete that work and move forward!  It is an exciting moment!
Thank you, Gala chairs and committee, thank you, Brigitta and advancement staff, thank you Flintridge Sacred Heart parents, alumnae, past parents, grandparents and friends for joining us as we seek to reach our goals. 
May the generosity you share with us return to you in ever greater abundance!
On behalf of all our Dominican Sisters, thank you for joining us in living out our mission of sharing faith, integrity and truth at Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy.
Gratefully yours,

Sister Carolyn McCormack, OP
