Our Annual May Luncheon highlights the many programs and participants we support all year long and the results that are important to our community. This event will highlight the many ways Mercy Connections helps move people to greater self-sufficiency. This year, we are pleased to honor Sara Byers as our Catherine McAuley Award Recipient.

The 2018 May Luncheon, chaired by Dawn Ellinwood, Vice President for Student Affairs at Saint Michael’s College, will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton (formerly Sheraton Burlington Hotel & Conference Center) in South Burlington, Vt., on May 3, 2018. There will be a silent auction prior to the formal program.

This year’s event is underwritten by Vermont Gas logo
