A gift-gathering party is a wonderful way to support our Chrysalis Auction. A gift-gathering party offers friends of Mount St. Mary Academy an opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow supporters of the school. Each guest is asked to bring a donation to the party or dinner. Gifts are usually displayed, thus giving the guests a sneak preview of items that will be up for bid on auction night.

Host a party for your classmates and friends! To host a gift gathering party, please contact Stephanie Ohol King ’05 at (716) 877-1358 x. 306.
