'Oh, What A Knight'

For the third year in a row, University Liggettt School’s fall auction, Liggettt Knight, raised nearly a half million dollars to support innovation and technology, academic initiatives, building improvements, athletic equipment and more.

This was the seventh year for Liggettt Knight, which has raised in total $2.62 million since its inception. The Nov. 16 event, held at the Detroit Athletic Club, included live, silent and fishbowl auctions as well as a special paddle-raising for building improvements at University Liggettt School.

The paddle-raising alone generated a record-setting $184,000 for campus improvements.

Popular live auction items included a week at a Paris apartment, pink tourmaline and diamond earrings donated by edmund t. AHEE Jewelers and a week at the Firesky Lodge in Whitefish, Montana.

University Liggettt School parents, faculty and staff donated items for the auction.

“We would like to express our thanks to our Liggettt Knight co-chairs, Kristin Nicholson and Huong Reilly, and to all of our Liggettt Knight volunteers who helped to make this event a success,” said Kelley Hamilton, associate head of school for external relations. “We also are thankful for our families who attended the event and bid on items, either at Liggettt Knight or at home. We couldn’t have raised as much as we did without their participation and support.”

The event generated $100,000 in sponsorships, which contributed to the nearly half million dollars raised.
