On Thursday, May 3, 2018, more than 300 parents, friends, faculty, and staff converged on the Prince George Ballroom, which had been filled with the colors, sounds, and flavors of India for A Night in Bollywood: The 9th Annual InSpeyered Evening & Auction! For just one night, Speyer became a Bollywood fantasy!
But this evening of fantasy will help to make a Speyer education a reality. The 9th Annual InSpeyered Evening and Auction raised more than $450,000 in support of Speyer’s mission. More than 200 lots were up for auction, including gorgeous getaways to Miami and St. Maarten, gift certificates to popular restaurants, and a variety of wines, from Napa Valley to Piemonte!
Eight-hundred-and-four raffles were sold for the ever-popular Educator’s Adventures, raising more than $8,000! And $141,000 was raised in support of tuition assistance during the paddle raise.
Much gratitude goes to this year’s InSpeyered Co-Chairs: Kayle Becker, Kris Berger, Piper Brar, Mila Jeneste, and Dave Leis. Leading a platoon of parent volunteers, they spent countless hours over the past eight months making the magic of this year’s Auction. They solicited gifts, crafted decorations, and were ambassadors of Speyer’s mission, driving the Auction to success!
Stay tuned as we get ready to announce plans for the Speyer Gala: Decade of the Dragon!
