Chers Bellarmine Family and Friends, Bienvenue à Soirée en Bleu! Our President, Fr. Paul Sheridan, S.J., Principal, Chris Meyercord and I are pleased and excited to welcome you to our 60th Annual Bellarmine Mothers’ Guild Fashion Show for Financial Aid! In November 1949, when the Mothers’ Guild was in its twentieth year, the Bellarmine Scholarship Fund was established to make it possible for academically qualified but financially disadvantaged boys to attend Bellarmine. In 1954, the Mothers’ Guild began organizing fashion shows to support the Scholarship Fund. The event has been polished over time… starting in peninsula homes, then the school gym, then the Cabana Hyatt in Palo Alto from 1962 to 1979, then the Marriott Hotel in Santa Clara in 1980, and since 1987, at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose. Through the vision and spirit of our foremothers and their wonder-working, the shows grew in brilliance and distinction. On behalf of the 2014-15 Mothers’ Guild, I would like to convey my heartfelt thanks to Past Mothers’ Guild Presidents and Past Fashion Show Chairs for the illustrious legacy we inherit. Although the themes take many forms, the mission has remained the same: to prepare people to serve others for the greater glory of God (Ad majorem Dei gloriam). The proceeds from the show benefit Bellarmine direct and endowed financial aid funds, which supports one in four students. Your support enables our talented young men receive the benefits of a Jesuit education that has at its core the motto of developing “Men for and with Others.” I want to express my most sincere gratitude to Catherine Westover, our Fashion Show Chair, Christine Culine, our Production Chair and Darla Brown, our Business Chair – les femmes extraordinaires! I also want to thank all the parent and student volunteers, staff and faculty, who have so generously donated their time, talent and energy to making this a dynamite event! You are all truly amazing “Women and Men for and with Others”! And now, let us celebrate and enjoy the 60th anniversary Soirée en Bleu – c’est magnifique! Go Bells/Go Belles! Chris Meyercord ‘88 Alice Ng Chow Paul G. Sheridan, S.J. Principal Mothers’ Guild President President 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 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 exemplified by Jesus Christ. 4
