St. Patrick Celebrates Benefactors

BILOXI, Miss.- St. Patrick High School held their annual benefactor dinner Wednesday night. Members from the St. Patrick Society joined together at the Chimneys Restaurant in Gulfport to celebrate a great year of giving.

The St. Patrick Society recognizes donors who give $1,000 or more to the Irish Fund within St. Patrick’s fiscal year. The Irish Fund raised $121,272 during the 2020-21 school year. Twenty-three of those gifts were $1,000 or more.

“Because of our benefactors, we’ve created a culture of giving at St. Patrick,” Director of Advancement Patrick Miller said. “There were 228 total donors last year, 45 who were our own faculty and staff.”

St. Patrick is currently planning their annual Shamrockin the Coast event. This year’s event is set for March 26 at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi.
