Record-breaking Liggett Knight is our most successful ever! 11/25/2019

For the first time ever Liggett Knight raised more than a half-million dollars to support school academic initiatives, building improvements, athletic equipment and more. Since its inception in 2011, Liggett Knight has raised more than $3 million for school initiatives.

This year’s paddle-raising generated a record-setting $216,000, our live and silent auctions brought in more than $140,000 and sponsorships brought in another $118,000.

Popular live auction items included a week’s vacation at a Paris apartment, a one-of-a-kind Bez Ambar emerald and diamond ring and a week in Cabo San Lucas.

“We sincerely thank our Liggett Knight co-chairs, Mary Mansfield and Rebecca O’Reilly, and to all of our Liggett Knight volunteers who helped to make this the most successful Liggett Knight ever,” 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 Liggett Knight or at home. We couldn’t have raised as much as we did without their participation and support.”

We also had dozens of unique auctions items and experiences given by our wonderful faculty and staff which raised more than $26,000
