Sacred Heart’s Sold Out Winter Gala Raises $60,000

At Friday’s Winter Gala celebrating Sacred Heart’s 155th anniversary, held at Montreal’s Ritz Carlton Hotel, the school proudly announces that it raised $60,000 which will go toward the school’s continuing implementation of 21st-century classroom technology, an ongoing project that will culminate with the introduction of Chromebooks with Google Apps for Education.

Capital Campaign Announced  In addition, the school made a major announcement that it is launching a 3-year $5 million Capital Campaign with the theme – The Future at Heart or L’Avenir à Coeur. This vast campaign was created to allow the school to raise funds for huge projects within its location. The school last conducted a campaign of such a nature 20 years ago with the construction of its double gymnasium and locker rooms.

“It was a marvelous and magical evening at the Ritz-Carlton for our current and past parents, alumnae, donors & faculty,” said Shawn O’Donnell, Head of School of The Sacred Heart School of Montreal. “We are so proud to have raised $60,000 for our illustrious school which is celebrating its 155 year anniversary” he continued. Roberto Di Giorgio, Chair of the Board of Directors added,  “As a parent of an alumna and of a current student as well as chair of the Capital Campaign Committee, I am proud to steer this newly launched initiative to its fruition.”

Also in attendance was the Most Reverend, Christian Lépine, Archbishop of Montreal, several sisters from the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the principals of Loyola High School, École Bilingue Notre-Dame de Sion and The Priory School.
