Benefit 2022

Celebrating Calhoun's 125th Anniversary

Thank you to the Calhoun community for coming together on May 9 to honor 125 years of this remarkable school. It was fitting that our celebration of Calhoun, where students learn without walls, took place at the historic Tavern on the Green, in a courtyard open to the beauty of New York’s Central Park. 

We want to give special thanks to our anonymous donors, whose extraordinary generosity allowed us to open this year’s event to the entire Calhoun community. 

This milestone celebration was the culmination of over six months of tireless work by the Benefit committee – composed of parent volunteers, Trustees, faculty, staff and alumni. Our deepest thanks to the Benefit committee; the evening's student, parent, and faculty performers; the development staff; all of our auction item donors and event sponsors; and our production partners – productionglue and BlueprintNYC.

Here's to the next 125 years as we celebrate this incredible milestone together, as One Calhoun community.
