Annual Christmas Boutique & Luncheon
Thursday, December 1, 2016
Apawamis Club, Rye, N.Y.

Each year in December, School of the Holy Child, Rye hosts a Christmas Boutique & Luncheon to benefit the Maureen Alison McGrath ’78 Memorial Library. Maureen Alison McGrath was an alumna of Holy Child who died tragically too young. Her legacy lives on through the programs and services offered at our school’s library.

Originally created to support Holy Child’s programming and speaker series, the Christmas Boutique & Luncheon is now one of Holy Child’s signature events. Last year's record-breaking event drew over 300 guests to the Apawamis Club in Rye, N.Y. Each year, the library luncheon features a female guest speaker who is a leader in her profession or community. This year's event will feature author, columnist and Rye resident, Annabel Monaghan. Visit annabelmonaghan.com to learn more about all of the exciting projects Annabel is working on.
