Pearls of Wisdom has been a major event for the Nashville Catholic Business Women's League. The annual Luncheon, Fashion Show and Auction Fundraiser is committed to raising money for the Aurelia Varallo Mariani Scholarship Fund at the three Catholic High Schools. Our recipients need it as much this year as in the past.  The pandemic has not stopped the need. Please prayerfully consider a generous donation this year for our scholarship recipients from Father Ryan High School, Pope John Paul II High School and St. Cecilia Academy.
