Xavier is located 4710 N. 5th St. in Phoenix.

X Breakfast 2015, co-chaired by Xavier parents Tami Christifulli and Susan Westra, will raise proceeds to benefit Xavier’s Legacy of Leadership Capital Campaign, which continues to fund Xavier’s Chapel of Our Lady, Founders Hall, Petznick Field, and the Activity Center renovation.  Although the event is free, guests are encouraged to support the school with a financial contribution, the release stated.

Ms. Corrigan, author of three New York Times best-selling books, philanthropist, and mother of two, commented that she is delighted to be coming to Xavier to assist with X Breakfast fundraising efforts and also to “have the Xavier students tell [her] how to raise [her] own teenage daughters,” the release stated.

Ms. Golden, an alumna of Xavier’s class of 1994, graduate of the University of Arizona, and fashion and lifestyle vice president in her firm’s Manhattan office, is very committed to volunteerism as well.

“Xavier really strengthened my understanding of community and taking care of one another,” she stated in the release. “I was a financial aid beneficiary at Xavier, and I have always appreciated that and look for ways of returning kindness however I can.”

All members and friends of the Xavier community are welcome to attend X Breakfast 2015.  To register or to obtain additional information, please contact Curt Bruggman at 602-240-3133 or
