What is Chrysalis?

Chrysalis Auction, started in 1995, is Mount St. Mary Academy’s keystone fundraising event, an occasion that is as exciting as it is worthwhile. The funds raised provide for new programs and equipment, improvements to the facility, as well as help to bridge the gap between tuition and our operating budget.

Chrysalis is a wonderful social event, a night of culinary delights, upbeat fun and an opportunity to procure wonderful gifts, services, personal items and travel – all for a good cause.  The nature of the auction process allows everyone associated with the event to choose their individual comfort zone and participate at whatever level they choose.
