The Dames of Mary Help ensure Education is the Passport for At-Risk Youth of Paterson and Beyond.
Seventh annual event celebrates His Excellency, Bishop Frank J. Rodimer; Jimmy and Ellen Greenbaum, and Susan Greenbaum Gross of Greenbaum Interiors

On Wednesday, October 27th, 2010 The Dames of Mary Help of Christians Academy, a women's auxiliary fundraising committee for the Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco and their school, Mary Help of Christians Academy (MHCA), will host their 7th annual event entitled "An Exciting Evening in the Roaring 20's" at The Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey.

Hundreds of guests from the tri-state area will come together to salute the Salesian Sisters, their surge in vocations, and their mission - - to educate youth at MHCA. The evening will include a silent auction, a live auction, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, dinner, dancing, and roaring fun that will culminate with the highlight of the night -- a presentation to honor His Excellency, Bishop Frank J. Rodimer; Jimmy and Ellen Greenbaum, and Susan Greenbaum Gross of Greenbaum Interiors.

The Salesian Sisters' love, dedication and commitment to education allows deserving children of every race and creed a terrific Catholic middle school and high school experience in a family-spirited environment, that at one time was out of their reach. A true testament to the value and importance of the Salesian Sisters education system is that 100% of the graduating class goes on to some form of higher education. Additionally, MHCA now provides their students in need a safe, caring place to stay while their family deals with difficulties at home.

Success breeds success and our young women are equipped with the knowledge, self-confidence, and determination to attend college and pursue their dreams. A student at MHCA, recently said, "A Mary Help education has been a wonderful experience for me. It has given me the opportunity to learn more about other cultures and expand my horizons. It has given me the motivation to reach for the stars and not to give up no matter how impossible a task may seem." At this event, we are "Partners" united in building up the youth of America! Come join us.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Mary Help of Christians Academy Financial Aid Fund. The Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco founded in 1872 in Italy are a Roman Catholic order of religious women dedicated to educating youth in schools, camps, and youth centers. The first mission of Salesian Sisters came to the United States through New York Harbor in 1908. They marked their centennial anniversary in the U.S. in 2008 and are currently located in NY, NJ, FL, IL, LA, TX, CA, AZ, and CO.
