Auction 2014

auction1auction3St. Monica’s thirteenth annual auction was held on March 1, 2014 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Under the theme of Wouldn’t It Be Loverly, the auction was a smashing success, netting over $165,000. After the silent auction and cocktail reception, dinner began with an invocation by Fr. Marcos Gonzales, former chaplain of St. Monica Academy. Our high school choir then delighted everyone with a brilliant rendition of “The Drinking Song” from La Traviata. One of the evening’s highlights was the testimony of Mr. Robert Boldt, SMA parent and litigation partner at Kirkland and Ellis. Mr. Boldt spoke of the tremendous impact that St. Monica Academy has had on his own children
