Immaculate Conception High School hosted its 6th Annual Gala Dinner on Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 6:30 pm at the Estate at Florentine Gardens in River Vale, New Jersey. The Gala date had special meaning and symbolized many extraordinary history of events. It was the 164th Anniversary of the founding of the Felician Sisters in Poland. On November 21, 1874, Blessed Mary Angela sent five Polish sisters to begin the Felician ministry in Polonia, Wisconsin. Additionally, we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the Founding of Our Lady of Hope Province. The ICHS community was honored and blessed to host our Annual Gala Dinner on such a significant day in the Felician community.
Nearly 200 guests were greeted by ICHS Student Ambassadors and members from the Student Council, with a cocktail reception, followed by a delectable three course dinner menu, video presentation, dancing, silent auction and a cash raffle.
Proceeds of the Gala will support the ICHS Annual Fund and benefit academic excellence, student tuition support, the creation of a STEM lab, and the implementation of the 2019-2024 Strategic Plan. This will enhance the opportunity to provide students with academic excellence, extracurricular enrichment, and a variety of opportunities, which are deeply rooted within the sisterhood of ICHS.
