Auction Photo Album: More Than 300 People Partied at The Willows to Support The Orchard School
Thank you for making The Orchard School’s 2020 Auction One Great Night! You rocked The Willows on Friday with more than 300 people dancing to the best music (Dave & Rae!) and the funniest auction assistants ever, Multiage Preschool teacher Elizabeth Philpott and brand-new sixth grade English teacher Scott Meyer. Way to go, Orchard!
More than 40 Orchard teachers and staff attended for free thanks to our $5,000 teacher and table sponsors Brooksource, Alyce and LG Edwards, Larry Howald Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing; and Lumina Foundation, plus presenting sponsor The National Bank of Indianapolis and Diamond Capital Management supports every effort, all year long from The Orchard Parents’ Association.
We also got a chance to honor those who’ve given so much to The Orchard School, the winners of The Orchard School Heritage Awards for 2019-2020: Karen Dean, Gordon H. Thompson Lifetime Achievement; Ann Merkel of The National Bank of Indianapolis and Diamond Capital Management, Distinguished Friend; Rick Roberts, Bruce A. Chalker ’65 Distinguished Volunteer, and Alyce Edwards, Exemplar of Excellence. Distinguished Alumna Mary Bookwalter ’62 and Distinguished G.O.L.D (Graduate Of the Last Decade) Sophia Pruitt ’17 were honored in October.
The Auction Steering Committee is already planning One Great School, One Great Night 2021 so contact Sarah Edwards if you’d like to help.
Thank you for coming to the 2020 auction, thank you for being a part of The Orchard School community and thank you for supporting the students, teachers, parents, faculty and staff of The Orchard School!
