The Palos Verdes Resale Endowment in Honor of Fran Donohoe Pitts '67 was established in 2009 in honor of Fran Donohoe-Pitts, a 1967 BMHS graduate and the founder and guiding force of the Palos Verdes Resale Shop. Fran passed away on February 10, 2012. The endowment provides an annual scholarship of $1,000 to a BMHS graduating senior, who is actively involved in Christian service, and is to be used for their college tuition. Since the PV Resale Shop opened its doors in 2004, it has donated over $2 million dollars to worthy non-profit organizations in the South Bay and Greater Los Angeles community. Through the years, Fran and all the members of Palos Verdes Resale have remained true models of Christian charity-in-action. We are proud to be associated with Palos Verdes Resale.
