Dear Serra Alumni,

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is enjoying the New Year. This month, we will host our annual 50-Year-Club Luncheon, an event that has grown in attendance every year. It's great to see our alumni who graduated 50 years ago or more come back to campus to dine with old friends and see what' s new at Serra.

Looking forward to next month, our Fund a Dream Scholarship Benefit will be held on Saturday, February 25. This is our largest fundraising event of the year and we are excited to celebrate arts and entertainment at this year's gala. I hope to see you on campus soon!
