"We are thrilled and humbled by this generous challenge gift to Saint Mary's School," says Frank B. Holding, Jr. and Ruth E. Perry Holding '81C, chairs of the school's Saint Mary's Forever campaign. "By making a $1 million challenge during the quiet leadership phase of our campaign, this anonymous donor hopes to inspire others to give.
