MESSAGE FROM THE ALUMNI OFFICE...
The 50th Anniversary Alumni Homecoming Weekend was not a fundraiser. Thanks to the hard work of alumni on the 50th Anniversary Committee, the commitment to alumni engagement on the part of IHS's administration, and many generous sponsorships or in-kind donations by alumni, we were able to provide a memorable weekend with 3-days of festitivites (including Welcome Bags for all registered guests, fireworks, shuttle buses, a free family festival, free post-Mass breakfast and so much more). Our goal was to keep the cost of the weekend as low as possible (only $80 for a Weekend Pass), so that all of our alumni were able to attend this milestone event and join in the celebration.
We heard from countless alumni after the weekend about how great it felt to be back at IHS, how much fun they had reconnecting with fellow alumni and former faculty & coaches, and how much they want to continue to stay in touch. Thank you all for your kind words regarding the success of the 50th celebration and for your ongoing support of the Mustangs of today and tomorrow.
Immaculate's alumni are the foundation of our great school. The 50th anniversary year is the perfect time to show our alma mater that we will be there for the countless students who rely on our gifts of time, talent and treasure. We see the impact that alumni presence and support is making at Immaculate. This is OUR school, and this OUR time to make a difference! Please stand with us and say, "I Am Immaculate," as we set a goal of collectively supporting the Immaculate Fund at unprecented levels of participation. It is the act of giving back that matters! Any gift, at any level makes a difference.
With sincere gratitude, The IHS Alumni Association
