Golden Anniversary Gala
The 2020 annual spring fundraiser was held Saturday, March 7, 2020, and ended up being the most spectacular event even amidst talk of the COVID-19 virus. Each year, the spring event brings together the Greenfield School family and Wilson community for a great evening of food, fun, and fellowship. From awesome trips, unique parties, variety of services, home décor, gift baskets, art, and more, there is always something available for everyone. Greenfield’s gym was transformed into a “Golden Ballroom” by several hard-working volunteers, who spent the entire week leading up to the event decorating for the black-tie gala. Over 200 attendees dined on fabulous food from Scarborough Fare, enjoyed both a silent and live auction, then concluded the evening dancing to the music from the band, Bounce.
All proceeds from the event are applied directly to operating funds to help close the gap that tuition and fees alone do not cover for the educational needs of our students. Luckily for Greenfield, the Golden Anniversary Gala was a magnificent celebration and amazing fundraiser held just prior to the mandatory school closures, which happened the following week. Greenfield’s timing could not have been any better given the circumstances of school closures for in person instruction just 10 days after the Gala. Because of our supporters, we raised more money than years past and thankfully so, as with the pandemic, much needed extra expenses were incurred as a direct result of COVID-19. In the end, the Golden Anniversary Gala-A Knight to Shine had net proceeds of $120,000.
