On Sunday, October 19, the Mary Fran Gilleran Scholarship Fund hosted CONNECTIONS: 2014, a gathering of friends, family and supporters of the fund at Detroit Cristo Rey High School in southwest Detroit.

The event offered an opportunity for family and friends of Mary Fran to:

  • make and renew connections,
  • celebrate the life and our memories of  Mary,
  • learn more about the Scholarship Fund established in her memory,
  • hear about Detroit Cristo Rey High School,
  • and take a tour of this amazing school that WORKS.

The gathering was an overwhelming success; more than we ever could have anticipated in the early days of the event planning.  We are so grateful for the generous support and encouragement of those who came to the event, as well as the event sponsors, donors, and volunteers.  We could not have done it without you.

CONNECTIONS: 2014 will enable the Mary Fran Gilleran IHM Scholarship Fund to continue to grant Leadership Awards in June of this year, as well as in 2016.
