Mary Louise Castillo and Eileen Horan, long time Mercy Burlingame faculty, will be presented with the Catherine McAuley Award at this year's Making A Difference Scholarship Benefit Dinner, the school's premier fundraising event. These two beloved teachers were chosen to receive the prestigious award in recognition of their commitment to the vision of Catherine McAuley and the education of young women. They have touched the lives of many with their combined 98 years as Mercy educators.
The Making A Difference event has drawn attention and strong support to Mercy's scholarship giving campaign, which has raised more than $2.2 million—with nearly 1,200 donors and 4,500 gifts—since its inception in 2004. The need remains urgent, with 35% of Mercy students receiving some form of financial aid in this 2017-2018 school year.
The Benefit will take place at 6 p.m. on April 25th, at the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront. Visit our webpage to buy tickets, sponsor the event, or give to Making A Difference.
