Beaumont School to host 2017 benefit gala on April 1

Beaumont School will host its 2017 Beaumont Gala on Saturday, April 1, at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven, 6111 Landerhaven Drive, Mayfield Heights.

All proceeds from the event will directly benefit Beaumont students at Beaumont, enabling the school to provide a scholarship to each student, provide tuition assistance to those in need, and provide operating expenses for the school.

The event will begin at 5:30 p.m., with Celebrant Reverend Donald Oleksiak leading a liturgy in the Landerhaven rotunda. At 6:30 p.m. a cocktail reception and silent auction will begin in the atrium. Dinner, a live auction and a mission drive will commence at 8:15 p.m., in the ballroom. The evening’s events will also include a wine pull, gift card grab, heads or tails game, and two raffle opportunities.

Mo and Mary Jo Paulett Toumert (’75) are honorary chairs of this year’s gala. George and the late Maryellen McBride Hammer (’48) are the recipients of this year’s Beaumont Award, which will be presented at the event.

“The Gala is a living demonstration of the incredible and unending generosity that is offered by our community to make sure that the Beaumont experience is available to generations of women,” said Beaumont President Sister Gretchen Rodenfels, Beaumont president. “From the gifts that are donated, to the time that is spent planning, to the bidding the night of the event—each has a critical role in the success of our evening. I am truly grateful for your continued belief in and support of the mission of Beaumont School—to educate young women for life, leadership and service.”

Tickets for the gala are $150 per person; $300 per couple. For more information, visit
