2019 Murphy Cup Challenge

This campaign ends on December 16 at 11:59PM EST

Calling all College-Age Prep Alumni! It's that time of the year again, the Murphy Cup Challenge starts now!

What's the Murphy Cup?

The Murphy Cup is an annual tradition every Christmas season in which college-age Prep alumni compete to see which class can get the highest number of classmates to make a gift to the Fairfield Prep Fund. This year, the Classes of  2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019 will face off.

Last year the class of 2018 showed up, put some "Prep in their Step" and dominated the competition. Will 2018 double down and claim victory again? Can 2019 start off strong and put a W on the board, 2016 & 2017 don't forget your roots, "Stick with Prep" this holiday season and make your Murphy Cup Gift. 

All gifts count regardless of size, the challenge is participation based so rally your classmates and share the challenge. This year all college age alumni are invited to attend The Holiday Classic basketball game free of charge on December 27th at Alumni Hall. Don't miss the complimentary pre-game pizza party with Father Simisky at the Student Life Center.

The winning class donors will also receive a special gift from Prep.
