St. Mark’s Episcopal a big winner at Kentucky Derby fundraiser

Watching the 139th Running of the Kentucky Derby was but a momentary pause in a fun-filled evening on the St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School campus on May 4. Over 230 supporters enjoyed a Derby-themed dinner while bidding on hundreds of fabulous silent auction prizes. According to Nikki Glynn, event chair, “It was such fun chairing our annual dinner and auction for St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School. This was our first large-scale event held in the new Lori Schiavone Commons and it was a total sellout. I appreciate the St. Mark’s community for all they did to raise funds for the excellent programs that make our school an outstanding academic environment.”
Due to the storm, the live satellite feed of the Derby race was shaky at best, but the lively crowd was undeterred and those in attendance were also entertained by a jazz trio from the Ronan School of Music, professional emcee Odette Struys and auctioneer Cory Mara.
