2015-2016 Annual Report | Auction Gifts

There’s nothing better than a festive celebration at the dazzling Hotel du Village to support Solebury School. Last April, our annual dinner auction, Havana Nights, was an event to remember. Parents, alumni, faculty, staff, friends and trustees raised their paddles to hail our treasured school. The bidding was fast, furious and super-competitive as we raised more than $139,000, including the $68,000 raised for our special appeal, Above & Beyond Endowed Fund for Faculty and Staff.

This endowed fund, which celebrates faculty and staff, was created by the Home and School Association during the 2014-2015 school year. The award honors members of the Solebury community who have truly exceeded the expectations of their position – even by Solebury’s high standards. The special appeal helped grow the award, ensuring that it will inspire our educators for generations to come. After a nomination process by faculty and staff, Head of School, Tom Wilschutz presented this year’s award to Assistant Director of Admission Janice Poinsett, who retired in June after 28 years with Solebury School, as well as our talented and dedicated music teacher Cathy Block. You can discover more about these outstanding women by perusing our fall 2016 Solebury magazine.

We are in awe of our tireless volunteers (parents, alum parents, students and alum) who worked months on end, hour after hour, to create this remarkable event. Volunteerism is what makes this evening was so successful. Time and expertise, a precious commodity, is a powerful force on the Solebury campus. We are humbled and thrilled to list our very generous Havana Nights volunteers and supporters.
