Benefit 2024

Thank You for Lighting Up the Night, Calhoun!

Thanks to you, Calhoun community, The 2024 Benefit raised over $620,000 for our students, faculty/staff and programs. We are deeply grateful for all that you made possible. From the Calhoun employees who shared their talents in the auction, to our sponsors and underwriters, to our paddle-raisers and bidders, to our musical performers – Calhoun shone bright last Friday night!

We would like to offer a special appreciation to the entire Benefit Committee who secured auction items, promoted and sold out the event, and transformed The Lighthouse; The Calhoun Board of Trustees; our student performers and the Calhoun Department of Performing Arts; our DJs and parent/guardian band, The Rents; all of our live and silent auction item donors; and our production partner, BlueprintNYC. 

Our deep gratitude to Benefit Vice-Chairs Kate Bittman, Nikki Chase-Levin, Achala Choulur, Monica Gullickson, David Hawkins, Kerry-Ann Henry, and Anu Kumar; DJ Hanson and his team at BlueprintNYC; and Christine Taylor, Development Chair of the Board of Trustees.

Thank you for all you do to ensure that Calhoun shines bright!
