Run for the Roses

Dear Prep Community,

Saturday, May 4, was a proud day for St. Augustine Preparatory School as another successful Run for the Roses gala was held on campus. A sell-out crowd of over 400 people came together in support of the school’s mission. We are so appreciative of the sponsors, attendees, and supporters who all contributed to the impact of the school’s signature fundraiser.

On a night where the Kentucky Derby came down to a photo finish, we were reminded why St. Augustine Prep is such a special place to so many.  The evening offered genuine fellowship, fabulous auction items, gourmet food and much more.

The Run for the Roses is truly an effort of many hands and hearts. I extend my gratitude to the countless parents/guardians, alumni, faculty, staff, friends and students who volunteered their time and talents to put on such a spectacular event. I also want to thank the tireless work of the Advancement, Business, Dining, and Facilities Staff, along with countless individuals from the school community who were vital to the night’s success.

Your passion and dedication to making each day at the Prep a meaningful transformational experience for our students is the essence of our core values and educational philosophy. Please know that the Friars of Allegrini Monastery remain grateful for your continued grace, resilience and commitment to our Augustinian, Catholic mission.

In Christ through Augustine,

Fr. Robert J. Murray, Head of School
