Loyola High Mother’s Guild Luncheon Raises Funds

In what has become a much-awaited event by the Loyola High School community and friends, the Mothers’ Guild Spring Luncheon celebrated its 83rd year supporting faculty salaries on May 3. The Luncheon’s spotlight was on 26 decorated, highly imaginative tables showcasing many themes including Cubstock: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen; Cubs, The Real Thing; iCub; and The Preppy Cub Club. Held at Xavier Center at the Loyola campus, the tables were produced by mothers representing all areas of Los Angeles. The tables have become so popular that more than 800 people attended the luncheon’s Preview Night the night before the luncheon.

The luncheon showcased the creativity of Loyola mothers and raised resources for the Guild’s annual gift to Loyola High School for faculty salaries. More than 750 women attended the festive fundraiser. The decorations, favors, centerpieces, and hostess costumes were all coordinated to match the various themes. Sponsored by the Loyola alumni mothers’ group, the St. Ignatius Guild, Preview Night proceeds are presented to Loyola High School at the yearly St. Ignatius Guild Luncheon to Campus Ministry and the community service programs.

Loyola mothers Denise DeSantis and Katie Lewis co-chaired the event. St. Ignatius Guild President Jan Clifford and Loyola Director of Events Karin Chamberlain coordinated the very successful Preview Night while Katie Vinnicombe handled reservations and Eden Danaher (Parent ’09 and ’12) secured a Las Vegas weekend prize drawing.

Loyola High School is an academically rigorous Jesuit college preparatory located just west of downtown Los Angeles. Ninety-nine percent of Loyola graduates go on to college or university and 96 percent enroll in a four-year college. Loyola’s student body of 1,269 young men represents a remarkable geographic diversity, drawing on 220 zip codes from throughout and beyond Los Angeles County. The school is ethnically diverse with 48 percent of the student body of Asian, Latino or African-American descent. To enable students to achieve the goal of being “men for others,” Loyola students must complete at least 150 hours of community service work before graduation. Over the past two decades, Loyola students have donated more than 1.2 million hours of community service, primarily to inner-city schools, neighborhoods, and agencies.
