We Couldn't Do It Without You!
Thank you to our sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees for making this year’s auction such a huge success. Your generosity and love of Xavier was on full display! 

Please join me in thanking Chris (Maco) MacDonald and JJ Putz, our auction chairs, for bringing the “Xavier Holiday Open” to our campus. Maco and JJ worked tirelessly to make this event a success. Their goal was to throw a great party and welcome everyone back to Xavier … and they accomplished just that. What an amazing night!  

A big thank you to those who supported our NourishPHX toiletry drive earlier this month. Your generosity helped us donate 125 toiletry bags and supplies to help families in need within our community.  

xoxo –
