1. Over 220 guests attended Holy Child School at Rosemont’s 38th annual Spring Auction, Midnight in Miramar, at the Sheraton Valley Forge. Guests, dressed in their Havana attire, perused the Silent Auction and mingled while sipping on Cuban drinks before they sat down for dinner. Live Auction included many exciting items, such as a week in New Orleans, tickets to Taylor Swift’s July concert, and the opportunity to attend The Gotham Independent Film Awards. The evening concluded with dancing to a live band until the stroke of midnight.The event, planned by Holy Child’s Parents’ Auxiliary, raised money to directly support Holy Child School at Rosemont.
