Loyola Mothers’ Guild raises funds for faculty salaries

Baseball was among the Cub-centered themes celebrated at the Loyola High Mothers’ Guild Spring Luncheon.

In what has become a much-awaited event by the Loyola High School community and friends, the Mothers’ Guild Spring Luncheon opened its doors to more than 750 women on May 3, celebrating its 83rd year supporting faculty salaries.

The Luncheon’s spotlight was on 26 decorated, highly imaginative tables showcasing many themes revolving around the school’s mascot including Cubstock: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen; Cubs, The Real Thing; iCub; and The Preppy Cub Club. Held at Xavier Center at the Loyola campus, the tables were produced by mothers representing all areas of Los Angeles.

The event has become so popular that a preview night — sponsored by the Loyola alumni mothers’ group, the St. Ignatius Guild — is now part of the weekend so that members of the Loyola community are able to view the elaborate tables.

“The Spring Luncheon helps cement friendships among mothers as they spend months preparing the tables as well as helping to raise funds for our very deserving faculty,” said Denise DeSantis (Parent ’08 and ’16), who co-chaired the event with Katie Lewis (Parent ’16 and ’18).
