St. Gerard is planning their annual fundraiser which supports the general operations of the Maternity Home and High School in St Augustine. This event is crucial to its financial well-being and celebrates the welcoming of the child at Christmas.

St. Gerard is a safe-haven environment for pregnant teenage girls where they may have their children while attending an accredited high school. By creating a mentally well balanced young woman, with a solid academic education St Gerard forever breaks the cycles of poverty, abuse and welfare so prevalent in this underserved/neglected segment of our society. St Gerard's Campus programs empowers these young women, prepares each girl with the education and life skills to live independently and succeed after graduation. In addition to the high school, services include an on-campus licensed teaching day care center, a residence for abandoned, abused or neglected pregnant teens, a Pregnancy Crisis Center for all women and adoption services.

The Fashion Show showcases fashion from local retailers, yet to be announced, which are modeled by St. Gerard Board Members, staff, volunteers, students and their children. Please plan to attend and note the following activities that are all part of a Holiday event that welcomes the child each year, and helps support the funding needed to keep St Gerard Campus in operation.
