Your Support Means the World to Us
We would love to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of the people and businesses who have supported St. Mary’s School and the Prime Rib Dinner in the past and in this challenging year of 2020. We would have loved to celebrate the dinner and auction in person with you this year but are grateful to be able to offer this takeout dinner & online auction as an alternative. Many donors and supporters have provided amazing auction items this year and with your help, we are determined to make this dinner and auction a success for St. Mary’s School.
