A Night In Siena
9th Annual Benefit Gala

We are planning for another wonderful evening in Siena, this time, under the stars! We hope you will be able to join us.

About the Gala

The Annual Benefit Gala, A Night In Siena, is St. Catherine’s largest fundraising event and the showpiece of the school’s social calendar. Proceeds from this event go towards tuition assistance and the operating expenses of the school. Every year A Night In Siena includes an impressive collection of silent and live auction items fine dining, drinks, and time to socialize with friends. The Special Appeal is a paddle raise item during the live auction portion of the event to fund the tuition assistance program.

Due to several health mandates in the state of Michigan, our event will have both an in-person and virtual component this year. In anticipation of celebrating the feast of our patron, St. Catherine, Gala supporters are invited to attend a private Mass held at the Academy on Saturday, April 24 at 5:00 PM. Donations and Sponsor signage will be on display in the school that evening. In support of local Michigan businesses, exquisite carry-out meals will be available from several area restaurants for you to take home, or dine in our tent, under the stars. Our silent and live auctions will be virtual. We hope the evening, full of a variety of activities, provides a way for everyone to come together to celebrate our faith and the future of St. Catherine of Siena Academy.

“I loved every minute at St. Catherine! The friends I made there will always be a part of my family. This school taught me how to be a strong, intelligent, independent woman who is strong in her faith. I am blessed to say I got to experience SCA.”

“The school lives up to their mission statement by unlocking the feminine genius in the girls who go there and providing us with the opportunity to discover who we are meant to be.”


“My first day of freshman year was something I never expected, Saint Catherine just felt like home. The atmosphere, staff, and the student body were all so amazing. I knew from the second I came to the school that it was where I was meant to be. I am currently a senior and my experience so far has been one too remember I have grown mentally, physically, spiritually and my journey has been one to remember. I love SCA and all the girls I have met are truly going to be my sisters throughout my life, its an amazing school and is a place I will call home forever.”

She will graduate with the confidence and courage to lead wherever she goes in life. I love the principal, the teachers, and the families. It is such a blessing to be a part of the SCA Family. I know the friends my daughter has made will be her sisters for life.”
