On Saturday, April 23, Mount Mercy Academy (MMA) will hold its annual McAuley Gala — Presenting Buffalo in Black & White — presented by M&T Bank and Catholic Health, Mercy Hospital of Buffalo. The theme was inspired by Buffalo’s resurgence, and MMA wants to honor Buffalo’s history and past success and celebrate it at the gala.
The gala will feature unique items in a silent auction such as Buffalo collector pieces and art, fun items like a kayak, outdoor patio heater, a Schwinn bike and much more. The annual event will also feature an exciting live auction with incredible packages up for bid such as VIP tickets to see The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, a waterfront home in Ireland, a New Hampshire cottage and gourmet private dinners, to name a few.
The gala will also feature the famous “Colleen’s Corner” filled with beautiful garden antiques and terrariums created by Mercy’s own Colleen Shanahan.
The McAuley Gala will be held at the Orchard Park Country Club, hosted by WGRZ’s Kevin O’Connell and chaired by Margaret (Whalen ’99) and Michael Brady, and Bob and Meg Hughes, current MMA parents. For more information, please visit mtmercy.org/gala.
