Cynthia Smith Kinney and her husband Michael opened their Fairfield home to host the second annual President’s Club Reception for supporters of Lauralton Hall, Connecticut’s first catholic college preparatory school for girls. Individuals who support the Lauralton Fund with donations of at least $1,000 annually are invited into the President’s Club. This reception allowed members of the club to socialize with Lauralton leadership and fellow donors. The reception welcomed current parents, parents of alumna, former students and friends, who enjoyed gourmet fare by the Executive Chef. The jazzy sounds of musical duo Gomez and Sadlon entertained the guests, while the “Lauralton Blue” cocktail also proved to be a big hit. The speakers for the evening highlighted Lauralton’s mission to empower young women of New Haven and Fairfield counties to lead fulfilling lives. Donations received will assist the school with important technological and educational advancements to better serve its 470 students.
