Annual Benefit

The Beekeeper's Ball

Saturday, April 25th, 2020 - Postponed 

In view of the Covid-19 pandemic, our live event for The Beekeeper’s Ball has been postponed. If you are wondering about the online auction event, we are honestly very uncertain whether to proceed and we will make the best decision we can in the coming weeks.

We thank our event hosting committee from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work. We will look forward to choosing a new date for The Beekeeper’s Ball live event in the future and then we’ll forge ahead with the most wonderful and joyous party! 

We also thank our incredible community of local small business owners who have donated gorgeous items for the online auction and for their expressions of support through sponsorships and donations in kind.

We urge everyone in our community to support our local economy by making purchases from our local small businesses online, consider pre-ordering goods and services, and/or buy gift certificates and gift cards. Remember that in some cases you can make these purchases by phone from small businesses that are unable to transact online. The important thing is to shop locally and support our talented makers and artisans.  We are currently working on our event page, to share a listing of all of the local businesses that have supported our school over the years.
