WHY DO WE HAVE A BENEFIT?
The Calhoun Annual Fund and the Benefit raise critical funds every year that make up the difference between what tuition covers and the cost of educating each and every one of our 711 students—about $2M this year. With your participation and support of our annual giving programs, we will build community, reach our goals and celebrate success as One Calhoun!


WHAT IS THIS YEAR'S THEME?
This year's theme is largely inspired by the legendary glam rock persona created by David Bowie in the early 70s: Ziggy Stardust. Glam rock added a rare splash of color and sparked a kind of cultural evolution through the spectacle of identity, dressed up in spectacular costume. Ziggy provided a form of escapism creating a rich, out-there theatricality that strayed close to performance art territory. Think glamorous, theatrical, androgynous subversive, and glittery!
