Events & Fundraisers



Tuesday, April 4, 2023 | Churchill Center & School  

Churchill has a long-standing tradition of having our students run a mile in Motor Skills class, allowing them to focus their attention on running and working toward a goal, which is something that they carry with them throughout their time at Churchill and beyond. In celebration of our Motor Skills Supervisor Mr. Rankin’s 40 years at Churchill, our third annual event brings together students, faculty, alumni, family and friends to “run the mile” (or virtual 5K) to support Churchill’s Scholarship Fund.

Mr. Rankin’s Final Lap!
We encourage the entire Churchill community, local and beyond, to join us as we celebrate Mr. Rankin and his 40 years of teaching excellence. He is retiring from Churchill at the end of the 2022-2023 school year and we’re hoping to send him off in style! Mr. Rankin has inspired countless Churchill students for four decades – chances are, if you attend(ed) Churchill, he was your Motor Skills teacher!

Event Details:
Choose either a 1-Mile (in person or virtual) or 5K course (virtual only). All participants will receive a Run With Rankin race t-shirt and medals will be awarded to top runners in each age bracket.

Churchill’s 17th Annual Sip & Savor was held on Friday, October 14, 2022.

We sipped. We ate. We grooved. We bid. We took photos. We connected. We had an absolute blast! THANK YOU to everyone who attended, donated, bid, sponsored, volunteered and helped make our event not only a huge success, but a night of laughs and memories. Most importantly, we raised over $31,700 to support Churchill’s Scholarship Fund! Sip…sip…HOORAY!




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…


OH WHAT A “BIG TOP” NIGHT! THANK YOU to each member of the Churchill community for the role you played in making Churchill’s “Greatest Show” our most successful Auction ever! This spectacular achievement was made possible by each of YOU, who supported our school with your time, talent and treasure in ways big, small and every way in-between!

Together WE RAISED OVER $460,000, including $114,000 to purchase new innovative SMART Boards for all of our classrooms!

We hope you had a magical evening, whether you joined us in person or remotely, and we appreciate your overwhelming generosity to make “a million dreams” come true for our students and families through our Scholarship Fund.
