Fall Author Event
Our main fundraising event of the year, the Fall Author Event has grown into one of the most highly attended events in our community with over 1,000 supporters at a public gala featuring a presentation by a renowned author. This fundraiser not only provides an opportunity for our community to come together in support of education, but also provides our students the chance to interact with, learn from, and meet world-class authors. The Fall Author Event includes a student writing contest based on our visiting author's books as well as a school assembly with the author for students across the district.
Our 2023 Fall Author Event is sold out!
If you would like to be placed on a waiting list, please email us at email@example.com.
Thanks for the amazing support!
