Bulldog Bash 2023: A Smashing Success!

Here's to "Going for the Gold" for Financial Aid!

Our sincerest gratitude for your attendance and support as we danced through the D-Ecades while raising money for Financial Aid. Your presence and generosity made a significant difference in helping us achieve our goals. Together we raised over $600,000!

Thank You & A Look Back: Bash 2022 Freestyle Love Supreme

 
 
Thanks to the incredible generosity of our D-E community members, the D-E Bulldog Bash at the Edison Ballroom on Saturday, April 30th was an incredible success! This was our first in-person event since 2020 and we were all grateful to spend the night celebrating and supporting a critical D-E initiative: Financial Aid. Of our 407 guests, we were thrilled to have ten newly accepted families and twelve alumni join us that night. We raised $510,000 for Financial Aid which is a new record in the history of this event.

A special “thank you” to our amazing volunteer Co-Chairs, Jennifer Goodman (P’20, ‘22, ‘25) and Tammy Mager (P’22, ‘24), for their leadership and guidance throughout the entire event planning process. Their inspiration, dedication, attention to detail and great company made doing great work for our community even that much more fun! To our entire Bulldog Bash Committee who worked continuously on sponsorships, auction items, décor and displays, you made the evening shine!   Lastly, to our sponsors and donors, who firmly believe in our cause to support Financial Aid, our mission to “make it better” is only made possible thanks to your generosity! Thank you!  

All of our guests were well-entertained throughout the night thanks to the celebrated improvisational performance of Freestyle Love Supreme which kept the audience tapping, rapping and laughing.  Upon check-in each guest was asked to think of one word and write it down on a notecard.  Our performers then randomly selected words submitted that evening and created a rap to the word promptly right there on the spot! And of course, throughout the evening  DJ Shant kept the tunes spinning and the dance floor rockin’ as our MC Trevor Shaw kept the show on track!

The highlight of the evening was a heartfelt and inspiring speech by graduating parent, Jeffrey Seller (P ’21,’22) who talked about the role of luck in our success and the meaningful benefits of passing luck along via financial aid contributions.  He led the way to the Reverse Auction with the assistance of our funny and talented Auctioneer, Roseann Todd (P’19, ’23). A record $232,000 was raised via Reverse Auction that night thanks to their outstanding work.

Our night ended sweetly with take home treats provided to every guest from The Treat House (Jennifer and Chris Russell). All around it was a very successful evening and we are thrilled with the contribution to Financial Aid!  Thanks to everyone who attended, donated, sponsored, bid, bought a raffle ticket and supported our cause!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in 2023.  We were sold out this year, so please save the date for next year – Saturday, April 29, 2023!

A Look Back: The D-E Head of School Society Fall 2022 BBQ at Montammy Country Club

What a D-Elightful, memorable evening!

Members of the D-E Head of School Society gathered together after a two-year pandemic-related hiatus to meet the incoming Head of School, Jeremey Gregersen, and his wife Liz.  The fun casual format of this event allowed for organic connecting with community members, both new and known. The Head of School Society recognizes gifts of $2,500 and above and Young Alumni (last ten years)  gifts of $250 and above.  While unrestricted Annual Fund participation is always the Dwight-Englewood priority, we thank all of the Head of School Society who prove leadership is so vital to our community's success.
