Fund-A-Scholar Gala

On Saturday, March 13, the St. Andrew's community gathered virtually for the 2021 Come Together Fund-a-Scholar Gala. For the second year in a row, we asked our community to participate in a virtual gala, and your willingness to step up and donate to support our Fund-a-Scholar Program was inspiring.

We are extremely proud to report that this year's virtual Gala netted $380,000, which makes this our third-highest Gala total in school history!

We are so grateful to you, our school community, for your generous spirit and unwavering dedication in coming together to support this critical need. As a result of this extraordinary philanthropy, more students will be able to attend St. Andrew’s next year – students who otherwise might not have the opportunity. The classroom experience of all students will be enriched by the diversity of perspectives and backgrounds in each class.

If you were unable to tune in to the broadcast Saturday night, we hope you will take a minute to watch St. Andrew's alumnus Adam Barton '12, our guest speaker for this year's program, who recorded a heartfelt and inspirational message for our Gala attendees and the larger St. Andrew's community.

The school would like to thank Kim Gorman and Jessica Somwaru, co-chairs of this year’s event, for their extraordinary energy and perseverance, which was instrumental to the success of this year's Gala.

We would also like to thank Holly Cirrito, Karen Portik, and Ana Pabón-Naab for their incredible work and leadership, as well as the entire auction committee of parent, faculty, and staff volunteers.

And, of course, a huge thank you to the St. Andrew’s community. From the attendees at home who showed their support by purchasing a party package and participating in the virtual Gala, to the faculty and staff on our groovy set who made "live TV" look easy, your role in Saturday night's achievement has not gone unnoticed. Thank you!
