Marian Middle School to Host Fifth Annual “Girls Night Out” Women’s Event
Marian Middle School, St. Louis’ only all-girl middle school, will host its Fifth Annual “Girls Night Out” Women’s Event on Wednesday, October 17, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Starlight Room atop the Chase Park Plaza in St. Louis, Mo.
More than 300 women professionals will attend “Girls Night Out” – a scholarship fund-raiser to assist the school’s economically-disadvantaged students. The cocktail party features delicious appetizers, complimentary beverages and fabulous raffle prizes, such as gifts from the Chase Park Plaza, Tiffany & Co., Brown Shoe, Rebecca Minkoff and Cedar Lake Cellars.
“Girls Night Out” helps fund the gap between the $12,000 per student educational cost and the $400 per student funded by tuition. With 140 alums since the school opened in 2000, 32 graduates are now in college. The vast majority attend St. Louis’ college-prep high schools following graduation from Marian Middle School.
The 2012 “Girls Night Out” event chair is Susan Conrad of EICON Properties.
Tickets are $75 per person ($50 for young professionals ages 21 to 35) and are available by contacting Marian Middle School at (314) 771-7674, or visiting www.marianmiddleschool.org.
