The Royal Affair is a dinner/auction with all proceeds going to the Endowment Fund. If you would like to find out more about the event, are interested in volunteering on the committee or making donations, please contact Mary Pat Rick.
March 31st Co-Chairs will meet in the school lobby from 7:30-8:00 a.m. to answer any questions about the Royal Affair (purpose, details, volunteer opportunities, etc.).
We hope to continue our “Parents Night Out” fundraiser to support this event. We are looking for grade-level groups of parents to host a fun night with other parents, with proceeds going towards the purchase of auction items. Contact a co-chair to find out more!
In 1995, a group of dedicated visionaries — parents, parishioners, and friends of St. Mary — wanted to gather friends to raise funds through a very special event. An exciting dinner-dance-auction was decided as the venue for such an undertaking. In the quest for determining the name for this annual event, the Royal Affair was born.
This name was selected because of the school's mascot / team name, The Royals. The Royals, of course, came from the school colors of Royal and White, and is also indicative of the colors often associated with the Blessed Mother. So, the name "Royal Affair" was selected and believed to be a spirited, honorable name and not an indication of a snobby or exclusive affair. Ask anyone who has attended to know that a great time is always had by all!
