Mount Mercy to Host Its Second Virtual McAuley Gala


                 As everyone knows, Covid 19 has impacted Western New York and its residents in innumerable ways.  Mount Mercy Academy has been affected in several ways, including the inability to host its annual McAuley Gala.  Although the Gala will not be held with guests in physical attendance, Mount Mercy is hosting its second virtual Gala this year.

                The Gala will be held online as a weekend event from April 22nd through April 24th.   The website will be active for the silent auction from 6 PM on Thursday until midnight on Saturday.  The website is accessible through the Mount Mercy Academy website and will list and show the prizes available as well as inspiring student videos. The link to the gala page is https://www.mtmercy.org/gala 

            An addition to this year’s Gala is a $2500 cash raffle. Tickets are $30 and are available online on Mount Mercy’s website.  The winner will be drawn during the live auction and the winner does not need to be present to win.

                This year there will also be a live auction, limited to 100 tickets, held on Saturday April 24th at 7PM.  Tickets for the Live Auction are $80 per person and $150 per couple. The ticket will include a drop-off dinner from Ilio DiPaolo’s Restaurant.  Dinner delivery is limited to a 15-mile radius and will include salad, roll, ravioli, meatballs and cannoli, along with a choice of red or white wine.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
