Marquette May Merriment XXXIX
Saturday, May 15, 2021

This year's committee members invite you to join us for a celebration of all things Marquette – making up for lost time!

On May 15, 2021, Marquette Academy will be hosting its 39th annual May Merriment dinner/auction – “The Blue & Gold Gala” to celebrate all things Marquette!  Even with the uncertainties of the pandemic, we are optimistic and hopeful that we can again hold an in person event. We will follow safety guidelines and have back-up plans if need be. Last year’s online auction was a successful alternate option, and we are so grateful to everyone who supported us through 2020.

Our children have been largely impacted by the pandemic. They’ve missed out on numerous activities and milestones that are crucial to their social, educational and spiritual growth. At Marquette Academy, we’ve been working hard to maintain as much normalcy as possible, all while keeping safety as our top priority. MA teachers selflessly care for our students, beyond just grades and attendance; and have made sure that they are learning every day, whether it be in person or virtual. We hope you will join in our efforts to invest in our students’ present, so that they may have amazing futures!

If you would like to volunteer, donate, or attend May Merriment 39, please contact the Advancement Office at 815-433-0125 Ext 1017 or 1018.
