St. Francis POSH Fundraiser Set for Saturday

St. Francis High School will be hosting its POSH (Preserving Our Scholastic Heritage) fundraiser this Saturday evening on campus. It marks the prestigious event’s 50th anniversary.
Tom Moran, the school’s longtime principal, administrator and former coach who is retiring at the conclusion of the school year, is the honoree.
“In 1973, parents of St. Francis students, along with the friars, faculty and staff, bonded together to begin preparations for the very first POSH event,” the school said in a statement. “There
was an excitement, a sense that something new was on the horizon. Something that would preserve our scholastic heritage for generations … Something good!
“Two years later, a young English teacher [Tom Moran] fresh out of college arrived on campus. Indeed, something good came to St. Francis High School. And in those 48 years, 45 of them here on the grounds of the former Flintridge Country Club turned college preparatory, something good has existed, which has preserved our scholastic heritage through earthquakes and floods, recessions, fires, social discontent, and pandemic.
“An avid and lifelong baseball fan, and on the occasion of this 50th anniversary of POSH, we invite all members of the St. Francis family to join us on campus for an extraordinary night … but one that mirrors ‘Just another day at the ballgame!’ Wear your favorite jersey, prepare to munch on fun fare and enjoy a libation or two in our beautiful courtyard, listening and dancing to friends from Past Action Heroes. POSH 2023, with the theme ‘In a League of His Own,’ will celebrate and share heartfelt thanks to Tom, and raise important funds for our Tom Moran Educational Endowment, which will further preserve our scholastic heritage.”
