On Saturday, April 5th, Ramona Convent Secondary School held “Arabian Nights,” its 17th Annual Auction Dinner Dance, in the Lakeview Room at Almansor Court in Alhambra. Current and past parents, alumnae, Board members, faculty, staff, and other friends of Ramona came together to celebrate and support Ramona’s mission to provide an educational program that graduates young women who are characterized by academic excellence, spiritual depth, moral strength, and personal grace, open to the wisdom of other cultures and traditions, and prepared to lead and serve in an evolving interdependent global community.

Thanks to the hard work of the Parent Committee, student volunteers, and staff, the event was a wonderful evening of fun, friendship and philanthropy that “made many wishes come true” through silent and live auctions, opportunity drawings, a Wine Wall, and a special “Fund–an–Item” paddle raise for the new Fitness Center that will open in September.

“Arabian Nights” was further made possible by the generosity of Payden & Rygel, this year’s Platinum Event Sponsor, along with Gold Sponsors Kathleen and Michael Garvey, Franklin and Phyllis Halladay, and the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary; Silver Sponsors Susan Schiffhauer De Pietro, Mike Kenney Insurance Agency, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, Drs. Felix and Chasity Nunez, and Linda Reilly Swick; and the William H. Hannon Foundation, our Hawaii Raffle Sponsor.
