Harvest Hoedown - Fall Fundraiser

14TH ANNUAL HARVEST HOEDOWN

The Hoedown rallies and unifies the St. Mary’s community around a common cause: to raise money to support our mission to challenge our diverse student body, to grow morally, academically and socially into passionate, confident and Christ-centered leaders of the 21st century. Our Harvest Hoedown donations support our STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art, and Math) Education Programs!

This year, we celebrate our Harvest Hoedown's 14th anniversary in a different way!
