“Up Hayes and All Its Loyal Men”



Two major milestones will occur in 2016. In June, we will celebrate the 40th anniversary of our high school class. Later this year, Cardinal Hayes will celebrate its 75th anniversary. As members of the class of 1976, we are also proud to serve on the board of the Cardinal and Gold Fund, the fund raising arm of Cardinal Hayes High School.

Hayes is the midst of a monumental transition.  During the last several years, financial support for Cardinal Hayes from the New York Archdiocese has declined dramatically.  And with 38% of the population in the South Bronx living below the poverty line, the need for a school like Hayes is more important than ever.

At the 75th anniversary celebration, we would like our class to present a gift of $25,000 to Cardinal Hayes High School.  We would like to reach this goal by September 30, 2016 so please give generously. Donations can be made online (with Designation: Class of 1976) or checks made out to the Cardinal and Gold Fund (notation: Class of 1976) and mailed to Cardinal Hayes High School, Development Department, 650 Grand Concourse, Bronx, NY 1045.

We hope to see many of you at the 75th Gala Celebration at the Plaza Hotel on October 21, 2016.

Up Hayes and All It’s Loyal Men!
