President’s Club members feted at reception

More than fifty current parents, alumna parents, alumnae and friends gathered on June 5 at the Fairfield home of Trustee Cynthia Smith Kinney, ’66, and her husband Michael, for the second annual President’s Club Reception. The President’s Club recognizes individuals who make a commitment of $1000 or more annually to the Lauralton Fund. Donors at this level are invited to attend special events each year. These special gatherings provide an opportunity for donors to become better acquainted with the Lauralton leadership and to socialize with others who support the Lauralton Fund. Donors are also recognized in the Annual Report.

Chair of the Board of Trustees, Michael Amato, P’11, welcomed and thanked those in attendance for their generosity to the Lauralton Fund and for their commitment to Lauralton’s mission. Michael noted how honored he was to work with Dr. Antoinette Iadarola to realize the vision for the school during a very exciting and dynamic time. “Leadership is key to success and we are fortunate to have in our President an experienced and proven leader with vision and commitment to Lauralton who comes to LH at the right time with the right team.”

Dr. Iadarola echoed Michael’s thanks to the President’s Club donors, as well as to the Lauralton Fund Captains and McAuley Parents Association volunteers, without whose enthusiastic efforts goals would not be achieved. She noted that this growing group of support reinforces Lauralton’s ability to fulfill its mission and helps to provide for numerous educational enhancements including increasing the number of iPads and Kindles available to all students, expanding internet bandwidth capacity throughout the entire school and outdoor study areas and supporting professional growth and development opportunities for our faculty.

Guests enjoyed gourmet fare by Executive Chef and the music of Gomez and Sadlon, a jazz duo. A “Lauralton Blue” signature cocktail added to the excitement of the evening.
