The River Oaks Country Club again provided the perfect spring setting for a sensational afternoon hosting the 51st Annual Mothers’ Club Style Show & Luncheon celebrating the Class of 2022 while benefiting the current and future Men of St. Thomas.

The St. Thomas community took particular pride in honoring Victor Costa ‘54, one of the driving forces behind the inaugural event. At the time, Costa was respected as one of America’s most significant and successful designers. His creative insight was essential in establishing a signature St. Thomas event that now extends into its second half century.

Great appreciation goes to the invaluable Eagle mothers who empower the Basilian Fathers to teach goodness, discipline, and knowledge, and to the generous underwriters and sponsors in maintaining the revelry at the original venue where the 1971 festivities debuted.

Special gratitude extends to Mothers’ Club President Amber Caver with event chairs Gwen McKeehan, Angela Platsas, and Lisa Weaver collaborating with Director of Special Events & Volunteer Coordinator Catherine Chandler, along with Dillard’s for providing exquisite women’s and men’s fashions, event producer par excellence Lenny Matuszewski teaming with senior stylist Tamara Klosz Bonar, Casablanca Productions, and The Phoenix Design Group.

In grand Style Show custom, there was no splendor to match the sartorial struts of St. Thomas President Fr. James Murphy, CSB and his fellow bastion of bespoke, Principal Dr. Aaron Dominguez ‘96.

Dressed for success, one and all.
