The 2019 Laker Legends Scholarship Gala was held on March 16!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2019 Laker Legends Scholarship Gala! With your help the gala raised more scholarship money than ever before for deserving students.
The evening was filled with the true spirit of Mercy as well as plenty of laughs with old friends and new. We are grateful to our Laker Legends and for everyone who played a part in a wonderful evening.
