A sold-out crowd enjoyed a special evening of fun and fundraising to benefit St. Ursula Villa’s outstanding educational programs. Held Saturday, April 8th on the Villa’s campus, “Destination Villabration” raised over $200,000 through Silent and Live Auctions. Honorary Chairs David and Holly Woprice and Madhu and Leela Vrishabhendra - parents with more than 30 collective years at the Villa - thanked attendees, volunteers, donors, and sponsors for making the event a huge success. Clever and colorful decorations with international landmarks, vintage luggage, and cultural icons followed the travel theme with auctioneer Mike Brown “piloting” spirited bidding on amazing items.

The Live Auction included a Special Appeal which generated funds enabling the purchase of cutting edge Social Studies materials for students in K-8 to help equip them for our changing world.

Auctioneer extraordinaire Mike Brown led Live Auction bidding after Principal Polly Duplace welcomed the sold-out crowd.

Villa parents take a break from Live Auction bidding.


Silent Auction included scooters and social time.

St. Ursula Villa Earns Jefferson Award https://www.stursulavilla.org/news/235/st-ursula-villa-earns-jefferson-award https://www.stursulavilla.org/news/235/st-ursula-villa-earns-jefferson-award St. Ursula Villa Earns Jefferson Award

St. Ursula Villa received the Jefferson Award in Recognition of Outstanding Public Service at our Opening School Mass on September 8. Principal Polly Duplace accepted the award from Mary Kay Connolly, Director of Children, Inc. and commented, "St. Ursula Villa has earned this award for five consecutive years due to our students' participation in Service Learning projects which create opportunities to learn through serving others."

Service Learning is a teaching and learning method that connects meaningful community service experiences with academic learning, personal growth, development of  life and work skills, and civic responsibility. This teaching methodology unites classroom curriculum with identified community issues and needs, creating opportunties for students to learn critical skills through investigation and problem solving around real world needs. Villa students' Service Learning projects have included fundraising to provide clean water in Kabingo, Uganda; collecting books for Cincinnati Children's Hospital; and donating Drama Club ticket sales to St. Rita's School for the Deaf.
