Benefit 2023

Thank You, Calhoun Community!

Benefit 2023, held on March 11, raised over $720,000 with all proceeds directed to financial aid. We are deeply grateful for all that our supporters made possible. From the Calhoun employees who shared their talents in the auction, to our corporate sponsors and underwriters, to our paddle-raisers and bidders – there's No Place Like Calhoun, because of you!

We offer special appreciation to the entire Benefit Committee who secured auction items, sold out the event and transformed our 81st Street home; our student and faculty performers; all of our auction item donors and our production partner, BlueprintNYC. 

Our deep gratitude to Benefit Vice-Chairs Agna Brayshaw, Nikki Chase-Levin, Karen Greene, DJ Hanson, Anu Kumar and Christine Taylor, Development Chair of the Board of Trustees.

We invite you all to share your feedback and ideas with Mary McCarty, Director of Development, to help make next year's event just as special. Thank you for all you do to ensure that there is No Place Like Calhoun!
