“Believe the Dream” Gala grosses over $144,000

The 5th Annual San Miguel School Gala, Auction, and Miguel Medal Ceremony, held on May 7 at the Pell Chafee Performance Center in Providence, grossed over $144,000. All proceeds from the event will benefit the school's Scholarship Fund.

In addition to funds raised through event sponsorships, admissions, donations, and a silent and live auction, an anonymous match of $20,000 was instrumental in making the night a success. The match will supplement the more than 60 VOYAGE after-school program sponsorships sold in the live auction, ensuring that every San Miguel student will be able to participate in extracurricular activities for next year.

Honored at this year's event were Miguel Medal recipients Michael Newquist, Omaris Maria, and the CVS Caremark Charity Classic, each recognized for their exemplary support of San Miguel and its mission. The evening was also highlighted by performances by the San Miguel School Chorus and Dance Team and a video premiere by San Miguel's Young Directors' Club.
