For 25 years, Regina Dominican’s annual Black and White Dinner Auction has provided the opportunity to laud and honor those who provide vital financial support for our school. On February 28, the school celebrated the quarter-centennial anniversary of this event, as over 360 alumnae, current parents, graduate parents, faculty, and friends of Regina Dominican rallied together and raised $340,000 towards scholarships and academic programs.
In her address to attendees, Student Council President Brigid Broderick said, “You have given me this education, you have given me these opportunities, you are what makes the Regina Dominican mission possible, and you have brightened my future. I am forever grateful to you all.”
The evening came full circle when Betty and Bob Parkinson of Northbrook, who make stories like Broderick’s possible, were awarded the Regina Caeli Award, which recognizes outstanding members of the school community for their sustaining support and constant dedication to the school mission.
