On Saturday, May 14th, nearly 200 members of our community gathered on campus, in addition to dozens more who joined online, to celebrate and partake in our 2022 auction, Around The World: An Evening of Adventure. As you may have guessed, the theme was inspired by Jules Verne’s classic, Around the World in 80 Days and celebrated something that we had all missed during the two years prior, travel. 

For the first time since the pandemic began, we were able to hold the auction in-person and come together as a community. It was wonderful to see our dedicated supporters reunited on campus for what was a wonderful evening in support of our beloved Solebury School. Thanks to a dedicated committee of parent volunteers, the Athletic Center was transformed into an elegant venue where hot air balloons were plentiful. 

An international assortment of food and drink, provided by Emily’s Catering, was enjoyed by all as they were serenaded by Solebury’s Elite Ensemble. The auction featured more than 150 items, including perennial favorites like a custom-made table donated by George Nakashima Woodworkers and the Head of School’s Bourbon Basket. These familiar favorites were joined by new items such as tickets to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and a weeklong stay on the coast of Portugal among others. 

The evening was a tremendous success, raising over $262,000 for Solebury School. A moving moment occurred when the special appeal raised more than $170,000 for Shaping Solebury, Solebury School’s capital campaign. The success of the special appeal was noticeable this past fall as we broke ground on Solebury’s new residence hall, Hope Hall. The new hall is on track to open in the fall of 2023 and will be Solebury’s first new construction since 2007. The additional funds raised at the auction will support many aspects of the school, including student programming, professional development for faculty, and facilities enhancements in the PAC and the Athletic Center.
