Dear Fenwick Friends:
Fenwick High School gives out over $2 million in tuition assistance every year. A large portion of this revenue comes from special events and their respective auctions, which bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars. The success of these auctions is a direct result of the generosity of donors such as yourselves in the form of donated items. These items often include vacations, sports memorabilia, event tickets and unique experiences.
We are reaching out to you for ideas and inspiration as we plan for this year's events. What type of items or experiences would you, as a bidder, find exciting? And furthermore, can you help us procure such items to offer in our auctions that raise funds to help our students? As a donor of these gifts-in-kind, you will be recognized in event communication pieces, at the events and listed in our Annual Report & Honor Roll of Donors.

  • The Friar Classic Golf Outing on June 9, 2023
