Special Events

There are a number of activities and events happening throughout the year at Mount St. Mary.  Some of our most popular ones are listed below. We hope you’ll feel welcome to attend all that interest you — it’s a great way to show your support and stay connected with our school community!

A signature biennial event, the Mercy & Me luncheon celebrates the Mercy values and their place in community leadership. Our Spring 2023 event will be held on Wednesday, April 5, at the Statehouse Convention Center. We are excited to welcome bestselling author and expert girl mom, Kari Kampakis, as this year’s keynote speaker. Click here for more details and to purchase tickets.

Since its inception in 1985, the biennial Dinner Belles dinner and auction has been a special time for friends of Mount St. Mary Academy to enjoy an evening of camaraderie, dinner, and fabulous live and silent auction items. Our 2022 event took place on Saturday, April 9, and raised more than $110,000 for the school’s annual giving campaign. We look forward to hosting this special event again in Spring 2024!


Each fall the Houndstooth Golf Classic provides a wonderful opportunity to support the Belles while enjoying a fun golf outing with friends. Our 2022 event is scheduled for Friday, October 7, at Rebsamen Golf Course in Little Rock. Click here to view information about sponsorship opportunities and team registration. Proceeds benefit the Athletic and Spirit Booster Clubs. We look forward to seeing everyone on the golf course this fall!

This family-friendly event promises a challenging, yet beautiful 3.1-mile course through the historic Hillcrest neighborhood surrounding Mount St. Mary Academy that is perfect for participants of all abilities. Supporters are also to participate “virtually” or in a location other than Little Rock. More details and the link to register for our 2022 event will be posted here once available.

Each year Mount St. Mary welcomes our students’ grandparents on campus to spend time with their grandchild viewing the latest developments in our classrooms and special program areas. Stay tuned for details about our 2023 event.
