Annie Wright’s annual auction events provide opportunities for the whole community to come together to celebrate our schools and our students. All of the proceeds from these fantastically fun fundraising events help ensure that our students have the facilities, faculty, and resources they need to succeed. Please contact Debbie Melillo to learn about opportunities to get involved.

Special Thanks to our 2017 Auction Sponsors

This year's Fund-A-Need honors our pioneering traditions while looking toward the future. The Lower School art room, one of the few spaces in our building that is still being used for its original purpose, is an architectural gem in need of love. The Fund-A-Need will provide the resources to restore the beautiful bones of this room while updating it with modern equipment, lighting and technological capabilities. The goal is to create a peaceful space that inspires imagination and innovation, while honoring the warmth, grace and heritage of our historic building.
