UPDATE: Chrysalis 2020 has been rescheduled for June 2020.
Dear Friend of Mount St. Mary Academy:
Like people across the world, we at Mount St. Mary continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and pray for those in affected areas. While we have had no reported cases of the virus at the Mount, based on the guidelines announced by Governor Cuomo today, we have made the decision to reschedule our 25th annual Chrysalis Auction a date to be determined in June, 2020.
As you know, our auction is the keynote fundraiser for Mount St. Mary Academy, and we count on the dollars raised to help make a Mount education affordable for our students and to offer them the very best experience possible. This decision was a difficult one, and we realize it will disappoint many.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our 2020 Chrysalis event chairs Paul and Eve Pedini Wells ’84 and Jeff and Jennifer Englert DeRose ’89 and our Chrysalis committee for their tireless leadership and work for the past many months. I also want to thank you and all our guests for your understanding during this very challenging time.
If you took advantage of our early bidding and chose “Buy it Now,” we will contact you for payment and pick up of your item. All other online bidding will reset and be restarted a week prior to our new auction date.
Please plan to join us in June – more details will follow — and thanks for your support of Mount St. Mary.
Katherine Spillman, Principal
