The Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart were pleased to join in the festivities as Grey Nun Academy hosted its annual spring auction on Saturday, March 17th. In addition to the Sisters above, other Sisters were also in attendance. With Irish music and dancers providing entertainment and black jack and roulette tables set in the perimeter of the gymnasium, the school was transformed into an Irish casino-themed venue. The room was filled with friends, families, alumni, and local business supporters.  Those present helped to raise funds for the school.

Proceeds of the event will benefit the school’s technology initiative and other important programs.  Thank you to all who supported this event and Grey Nun Academy.
