Foundations in Education is excited to announce that celebrity auctioneer Pat Tully will join us again for our premiere fundraiser. While a re-imagined Virtual Hybrid Benefit may look different, friends and donors of Foundations in Education will join us online to celebrate Catholic education on May 6!

The Benefit Committee enthusiastically agreed to move forward with a virtual “hybrid” program. We invite sponsors to host small gatherings at their home on May 6, where your guests will enjoy home delivery of a delicious dinner for 10 prepared by Marcia Selden catering, two bottles of premiere wine donated by Paula and Tom McInerney, and a unique New York Giants floral centerpiece. Individuals purchasing individual virtual tickets too are encouraged to participate from home. Gather your friends and family for an event to remember!

Starting at 6:00 pm, Tully will provide an entertaining evening of humor and high energy as guests bid on exclusive packages. Tully’s clients include LSA Family Health Service, Petra Nemcova’s Happy Hearts Fund, Russell Simmons Diamond Empowerment Fund, The Shaun O’Hara Foundation, the New York Giants and the US Ski Team.

Join us online at 6:00 pm for our moving and educational program, featuring Bishop Frank Caggiano, honorees Lynn and Frank Mara and Dr. Julia M. McNamara, heartwarming video and live auction! Eli Manning may even make a surprise appearance!
