Biennial Dinner & Auction

The Auction is the largest source of revenue to support Churchill’s Scholarship Fund. The event brings together parents, alumni parents, friends, faculty, staff and alumni for a very special evening to support our amazing students. The Auction includes a premier live auction and a variety of categories in our impressive silent auction.

Churchill’s most recent dinner and auction was held Saturday, February 29, 2020. Thank you to all who attended and supported “Fly Me to the Moon” Dinner & Auction. Together we raised more than $293,000 for the Scholarship Fund and $58,000 for the Fund-A-Need to purchase new, flexible, individualized furniture in the art and tutorial rooms.

Thank you for being a part of our wonderful evening. Your continued, remarkable generosity – whether it be through volunteering, sponsorship, donations or affirmations – means a brighter future for our students and our school!

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 $2​57,000 for scholarship assistance to ensure no family is turned away from Churchill for their inability to pay.
