"Many Hands, One Hope" Gala raises more than $160,000

This year's "Many Hands, One Hope" Gala, held May 4 at San Miguel Providence, raised more than $160,000 for the school's Student Sponsorship Fund.

More than 250 friends of San Miguel gathered in celebration of our boys and to honor this year's Miguel Medal recipients: Dan Pilkington and Maurene Souza Pilkington, Joe and Maria Schwartz, and St. Sebastian's School. 

A surprise Honorary Miguel Medal was presented to former WRPI 12 Eyewitness News Anchor Karen Adams, our event MC and long-time friend and supporter of San Miguel. 

The evening was highlighted by performances by the San Miguel Chorus, San Miguel Dance Team, and a video premiere from the Young Director's Club.

Many thanks to our event sponsors, auction donors, volunteers, and supporters who helped make this year's Gala our most successful yet! 

Thank You to Our Event Sponsors
