Saturday was truly a special evening! Whether you donated an item, sponsored the event, bid from home, or enjoyed the food, drinks, and fun in the Meruelo Athletic Center, we are deeply grateful for your support, love, and loyalty of our only all-school fundraiser. Proceeds from A Taste of Mater Dei fund crucial school-wide programs and innovative technology upgrades benefiting our entire student body.
