In the spirit of HONOR, GLORY and LOVE, our Monarch Family came together for our 2nd Annual 1950 During Homecoming Week on Friday, October 11, 2019.

Mrs. Darlene Shiley, of the Shiley Foundation, provided a challenge grant of $50,000 and agreed to match all funds raised up to $50,000!  The final numbers for 2019 are in:



Thank you also to Mark Schley '63 and our Anonymous Current Parent Family for adding additional challenge grants to this year's 1950 Day.  All proceeds benefit need-based financial aid at Mater Dei High School which over 55% of our students are receiving aid this year. 

1950 Day demonstrates the LOVE we all have for Mater Dei as well as the power of collective impact. Each of us strengthens ALL of us.  Thank you EVERYONE for your support of 1950 Day! We look forward to next year, and yes, we are already cooking up a memorable video to inspire your love and generosity!
