Orchard’s Centennial Auction Raises More Than $115,000 for the Owl Fund

Keep scrolling to see photos from the event. Orchard community, we sent an email titled "Orchard’s Centennial Auction Raises More Than $115,000 for the Owl Fund" with a few more photos.

What a night! A giant thank you to everyone who supported the auction – either online, in person, or both - this past weekend. We raised more than $115,000 for The Orchard School!

We are grateful for the generous sponsorships provided by Ambre Blends and Eight Eleven Group.

We are also thankful for the in-kind donations provided by Elijah Craig Bourbon, Mallow Run Winery, and Nothing Bundt Cakes.

There are so many people without whom this event would not have been possible. A special thanks to the Orchard Development and Marketing Departments for their partnership in bringing our vision to life. Taylor Ogden, Vanessa Bertoni-McElroy, Amanda Goedde, Sheena Xiao, and James Layne…you’re all amazing.

A huge thank you to the Orchard teachers who attended the event, provided GEMs, and made space for grade-level art projects in their classrooms.

Our grade-level art items would not have been possible without the organizational skills of Heather Tosh…. she also gets a huge shout-out for single-handedly getting the eighth-grade art project finished!

Thank you to all of the parents who helped us procure, log, transport, and generally organize auction items.

Behind every auction, there is a village of primary volunteers whose enthusiasm and time make the event come to life.

Special thanks to Lisa Hancock for being a cheerleader, proofreader, and jack of all trades.

Liv Martin, thank you for the countless design hours and your vision for this event. It was flawless!

And last, but certainly not least, we are indebted to Jenny Weiser and Tiffany Turner for pouring their whole selves into this event. You are both amazing examples of the Orchard spirit - together we can achieve anything.

Cheers to 100 more years!

Devon Hensel
2022-23 Parents’ Association President
