Without the generous support and charitable donations to Marian’s annual fundraising events, the Marian mission of educating women to become lifelong learners and leaders would not be possible. The following events aid in funding Marian’s superlative college preparatory education: MarianFEST, Lexus Champions for Marian Golf Tournament and the student-led Walk-A-Thon.
MarianFEST (Funding Education in the Servite Tradition) is Marian’s annual benefit dinner and auction held each February. All proceeds from this night of camaraderie and fundraising help Marian provide the best educational experience for the young women of Omaha and the surrounding areas.
The Lexus Champions for Marian Golf Tournament is held annually in the summer and is part of the Lexus Champions for Charity Golf Series. The tournament, like MarianFEST, provides funding to support Marian’s superlative academic and extracurricular programs.
A tradition for more than 20 years, Walk-A-Thon is the only student-facilitated fundraiser at Marian. Each class competes against the others to raise the most money. The event’s goal grows each year and encourages the students to be advocates for Marian in helping to fund the costs that accompany the school’s operations. The annual fundraising campaign culminates with an all-school four-mile walk around surrounding neighborhoods in late September. City of Omaha Police, parent volunteers, faculty and staff participate to ensure students’ safety and cheer them on along the way.
