Dear Fordham Preparatory Community:
During the last few weeks, the Prep has sent students to three continents on mission-focused service trips, conducted several Emmaus retreats, competed and advanced to the finals of the National History Bowl in Washington, DC and, in a sports "quadfecta", cheered on our basketball, hockey, indoor track & field and swimming teams as they capped their winning seasons at city and state championship finals.
We acknowledged those achievements and heralded the groundbreaking of the Prep's East Wing Project at Igniting Our Mission - A Celebration of Fordham Prep. Thank you to the over 500 parents, alumni, faculty and friends who attended and so generously supported the Party at the Prep.
Last Saturday night, with your help, we were able to raise $442,000, in addition to receiving two gifts totaling $100,000, in support of the Prep's East Wing Project.
Whether you joined us in person, were a sponsor, made a donation, participated in our community mass, purchased a Ram Raffle ticket or simply kept us in your prayers, we are grateful for your generosity and contribution to our mission.
We would like to thank all our event sponsors, underwriters, journal advertisers, and every attendee who helped make this celebration such a success.
In the meantime, and at the request of many of our guests, we are happy to share the two short videos that were shown Saturday night. The first, "Igniting Our Mission," was created and produced by juniors Connor Begley and Charlie O'Connor under the direction of FPTV Club moderators Chad Broussard and JP Feighery '03.
Also, please enjoy a photo gallery from Saturday night!
