SpireFest 2019: A Record-Setting Night

Another amazing night goes down in history! This year marked the 16th anniversary of SpireFest, the largest scholarship fundraiser at the University of Saint Mary. SpireFest 2019 brought more than 400 guests together, raising more than
$285,000
(a record high) for USM student scholarships.

Guests enjoyed bidding on silent auction items while USM’s very own Dr. Alison Banikowski, C’75, graciously served as the emcee. Joe Contrucci, C’94, and Pauly Leetz, C’92, served as our incredibly entertaining Fund-A-Scholar auctioneers—helping raise $92,150 in that portion of the event alone.

A big thank you to our SpireFest sponsors—the night wouldn’t have been possible without you!
