Run for the Roses 2022


Dear Prep Community,

Saturday, May 7, was a proud day for St. Augustine Preparatory School as we hosted the most successful Run for the Roses gala in the history of the event. A capacity crowd of about 400 people came together to raise more than $175,000 in support of our 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 when we watched a long shot win the Kentucky Derby, we were reminded why St. Augustine Prep is a special favorite of so many. The evening offered genuine fellowship, fabulous auction items, gourmet food and much more. To get a glimpse of the night, I encourage you to watch this short HIGHLIGHT VIDEO.

Run for the Roses is truly an effort of many hands and hearts. My thanks go out 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 many others from the school, who were vital to the night’s success.

I am delighted to share that we are quickly approaching our goal of $1.8 million raised before our giving year ends on June 30, 2022. Your passion and dedication to make 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 amid all of the challenges of the past two years.

In Christ through Augustine,

Fr. Robert J. Murray, Head of School
