This year St. Mary School will celebrate 150 years of serving the families of Gilroy.  Ironically, this may be one of the hardest years yet for educating our children in our educational history.  It will require new skills, tools, and resources, as well as patience and flexibility on behalf of the educators and families.  That is why we have never needed your support more than we do now.

We want to do everything we can to protect the educational experience and the community through events that support fitness, education, and a sense of school community.  That is why we hope you will consider sponsoring the St. Mary School 12th Annual Walk-a-Thon, held rain or shine, virtually Thanksgiving Week.  Your sponsorship of the event will help in the effort to meet the school’s financial need regardless of our ability to be in the classroom, on campus, or in a group setting.

As a trusted local business who understands the importance of lending support to the community and the people in it, we respectfully request your consideration to help sponsor this event.  We are excited to keep this tradition going, but we need our sponsors’ help to make this happen.  Please click on our Sponsorship Levels to see what comes along with your generous gift. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
