The Mad About St. Thomas Auction & Gala, honoring Dona and Al Clay ’61, toasted the Mad Men fashion and panache of the 1960s when it was always happy hour at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce and no dull moments or dull men were tolerated.

The resounding efforts were chaired by Tina and Bradley Crawford, Caroline and Jim Hassell, and Christi and Alan Johnston in collaboration with Vice President for Advancement Mark deTranaltes ‘83 and Special Events Coordinator Catherine Chandler, and featured rapid-fire rounds of bidding with Mandola’s unmatched catering.

The proceeds from the annual signature St. Thomas celebration provide critical funds vital to the success of the St. Thomas. The benevolence signals to students, faculty, Greater Houston and the region that St. Thomas alumni, parents and supporters are invested in the school’s unwavering dedication to innovative scholarship in tandem with the spiritual growth of its students.

Uncommon brotherhood, uncompromising academics.

And as Don Draper would suggest … simplicity is good, significant is best!
