Dear Bellarmine Family and Friends, Welcome to the 61st Annual Bellarmine Mothers’ Guild Fashion Show for Financial Aid: “The Bells are Ringing in our Winter Wonderland.” For 164 years, the mission of Bellarmine College Preparatory has remained unchanged: to provide a Jesuit education to a diverse student body by developing “Men for and with Others”. Bellarmine helps our students find and develop their individual gifts and talents, and then put them at the service of others. The proceeds from the Fashion Show benefit both Bellarmine’s Direct Financial Aid and the Financial Aid Endowment, helping meet the increasing needs of numerous families. This year, 24% of our students are receiving financial assistance, which is budgeted at $4.1 million, more than any high school in California. It is your generosity that makes it possible for young men from all economic circumstances to attend Bellarmine. Today’s show is a celebration of the many outstanding talents and creativity of our current Bellarmine students and families. We hope you enjoy our magical “Winter Wonderland” of sparkling trees and Bells. Sit back and envision yourself in a horse drawn sleigh as we delight you with dazzling musical and dance performances, while enjoying the poise and confidence of our Bell boys as models, performers and hosts. Congratulations and a deep heartfelt thanks to the vision and dedication of our Fashion Show Chair Susan Bunce. Susan, along with her Business Chair Sandy Douthit and Production Co-Chairs Kristen Del Biaggio Heffernan and Greta Jackson have worked tirelessly over the past year to transform our show into this magical experience. Congratulations to these remarkable “Snow Angels” who led a group of amazing volunteers to create the winter spectacle that you are about to enjoy. With priceless gifts of their time and talent, these generous women are helping to ensure that every Bellarmine student has the ability to fulfill his high school dream, regardless of his financial circumstances. Our sincere appreciation goes to all the volunteers, staff, faculty and administration, and to all the many participants who have helped us create our Winter Wonderland. Thank you for supporting the Bellarmine Financial Aid Program and joining us as our Bells ring in our Winter Wonderland. Go Bells! Chris Meyercord ‘88 President Debra Vallner Mothers’ Guild President Kristina Luscher Principal Bellarmine College Preparatory is a community of men and women gathered together by God for the purpose of educating the student to seek justice and truth throughout his life. We are a Catholic school in the tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus. As such, all aspects of our programs are dedicated to forming “Men for and with Others,” persons whose lives will be dedicated to bringing all their God-given talents to fullness and to living according to the pattern of service inaugurated by Jesus Christ. 4
