GALA AUCTION
I
t was a beautiful spring evening as we
welcomed our guests to the annual
Aquinas Gala Auction at Old Hickory
Golf Club on Saturday, April 29th.
Guests enjoyed a lively and fun evening
with delicious food, live music, and an
auction that kept everyone on their toes.
Making the evening particularly special
was our guest of honor Sister Christine
Born, O.P., the founding principal of
Aquinas. She traveled from Nashville to
be with us, and it was a joy to welcome
her to our event. Joining her were
several founding members of our school
including the first school Secretary and
the first Development Director. Many
current families had the opportunity
to meet those who were there at the
beginning and enjoyed hearing the
stories from the early days of Aquinas.
The Gala Auction was extremely
successful this year raising more than
$50,000, which exceeded our goal by
almost double! Thank you to all those
who supported this event and helped
make it a truly fun evening.
Thank you to our sponsors:
Toyota of Woodbridge
AG Electrical Services
Renova Smiles
Kolex Collision Center
SISTER CHRISTINE BORN, O.P.
Sister Christine shared an inspiring
message to attendees of the Gala
highlighting the early days at Aquinas and
encouraging all to continue this great work.
She closed by quoting St. John Paul II,
" You have not only a glorious history to
remember and to recount but also a great
history still to be accomplished! "
