Events & Fundraisers
Biennial Dinner & Auction
Every other year, Churchill hosts a Dinner & Auction to raise money to support the Scholarship Fund. The Auction is the single largest fundraiser we hold and a wonderful opportunity for the entire Churchill community to get involved, interact and reconnect. It brings together parents, alumni parents, friends, faculty, staff and alumni for a very special evening to support our amazing students. The evening includes a premier dinner, full bar, an elite live auction and a variety of categories in our impressive silent auction.
This year’s Dinner & Auction was held on Friday, April 8, 2022 at the Hilton St. Louis Frontenac. And it was…

Churchill Center & School has a long-standing tradition of having our students run a mile in Motor Skills class. Supported by our Motor Skills Supervisor Mr. Rankin for the last 38 years, this activity allows our students to focus their attention on running and working toward a goal, which is something that carries with them throughout their time at Churchill and beyond. Many of our alumni include running the mile as one of their favorite Churchill memories!

What a beautiful day in every way! Churchill’s 6th Biennial Golf Tournament was held Monday, May 3, 2021 at Greenbriar Hills Country Club.

This biennial tournament began in 2011 to honor the life of Edwin (Ted) L. Noel, a former parent and Board President of Churchill Center & School. Ted and his family and friends were very passionate about helping families in financial need be able to attend Churchill. Since the tournament’s inception, it has raised more that $404,000 for scholarship assistance to ensure no family is turned away from Churchill for their inability to pay.
