SpireFest fundraiser for the University of Saint Mary

 

This year marks the 14th anniversary of SpireFest, the largest scholarship fundraiser at the University of Saint Mary. Each year, SpireFest brings over 500 guests together—with a goal to raise more than $200,000 for USM student scholarships. The event consists of live entertainment, a live and silent auction, gourmet dinner, fun red carpet activities, and much more!

Please join us on April 1, 2016 at the Intercontinental Hotel on the Plaza to support the students of the University of Saint Mary. Ninety-nine percent of our students receive financial assistance. More than 40 percent of our student body represent the first generation of their families to attend college, and just over 43% qualify for low-income federal aid.

Without scholarships, college would be merely a dream for many of these students. Instead, it’s reality. Future nurses, teachers, entrepreneurs, moms, and dads—the possibilities are endless.     

This year, our goal is no different. Student scholarships are at the heart of SpireFest 2017, and your support is what will make this exciting event a huge success.

On behalf of Saint Mary, I would like you to consider sponsoring or donating an auction item to SpireFest 2017.

All proceeds from the event benefit student scholarships—ensuring deserving USM students have the scholarship assistance they need to complete their education and go after their dreams.   

We thank you for your consideration and we look forward to seeing you on April 1.

Saturday, April 01, 2017 6:00 PM thru 11:30 PM
