With the 11th Annual Grand Gala just a month away (Saturday, April 14...tickets on sale now!), our Gala co-chairs are looking for your help in securing special items and experiences that will help to make our auctions – and especially the live auction – truly spectacular!
Next week, Prep Dramatics will present High School Musical, a musical comedy about standing up to the status quo. Performances will take place on on Thursday 3/22, Friday 3/23, and Saturday 3/24 at 7:30, plus Sunday 3/25 at 7 p.m. Dramatics alumni are invited to a homecoming reception following the the Friday night performance!
Nearly 800 Prep students and moms celebrated the annual Mother-Son Dance last weekend, at the Venetian in Garfield. Now in its 20th year, the "Mom Prom" has grown into the PPA's largest single event! If you joined us on Sunday, you can now find your portraits – and order prints and gifts – in our online gallery.
Arrupe Week 2018, the 21st annual edition of the Arrupe Lecture Series, began on Monday with a keynote address by Fr. Dan Corrou, S.J. Fr. Corrou is currently associate pastor at the Church of Saint Francis Xavier in Manhattan, and previously served with the Jesuit Refugee Service in Beirut, Lebanon, where he ministered to refugees of the Syrian civil war. Reflecting on his own experiences, as well as teachings in the Catholic and Jesuit tradition, Fr. Carrou set the tone for a weeklong exploration of how people of faith can compassionately and morally respond to the global refugee crisis.
The Grand Gala is more than Prep's biggest night. It's a promise kept.
On Saturday, April 14th, Prep will host its annual Grand Gala in its hometown of Jersey City. In its first ten years, the Gala has raised more than $3.7 million, helping us to double the amount of financial aid available to our students – made possible by the generosity of Prep supporters like you! A gift of products, services, gift baskets or gift cards would be a wonderful addition to our live or silent auction. If you would like to make a donation for our auction please contact Dalma Santana, Director of Special Events, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
