Annual Fundraiser 2018

THANK YOU to everyone who supported Mercy Career & Technical High School's annual fall fundraiser on October 4, 2018! Your generosity netted more than $254,000 for educational programming and financial aid for Mercy students!

We were honored to present the "Work of Mercy" Award to two members of the Mercy community:

George Matysik '99, Executive Director, Philadelphia Parks Alliance

George is the first alumnus to be invited to join Mercy Career & Technical High School's Board of Trustees, a role he has fulfilled with distinction since 2012. His educational journey and his professional commitment to public service have inspired students, alumni, and his fellow trustees. Since earning his degree in urban studies from the University of Pennsylvania, George has applied his knowledge, skills, and experience to improving civic life throughout Philadelphia. We were honored to present George with the Work of Mercy Award for his many contributions to our school and our city.



The Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority and its relationship with Mercy Career & Technical High School. PCCA's generous annual investment supports Mercy's career offerings in Business Education, Building Trades, and Culinary Arts and prepares students for successful careers within Philadelphia's growing hospitality industry. We were pleased to present the Work of Mercy Award to John J. McNichol, President & CEO, in recognition of PCCA's ongoing generosity and support.

Like you, they champion our unique programs and project-based education approach, and we are proud to recognize both their generosity and commitment to our students and the Mercy CTE mission.
