Sail Away Extravaganza 2019 Raises a Record-Breaking $315,000!
Canterbury School is proud to announce that our Sail Away Extravaganza 2019 was a phenomenal success, raising a record-breaking $315,000! Funds raised from the event benefit Canterbury’s academic programs, arts, athletics, faculty professional development, as well as support need-based financial aid.
The event took place on the evening of April 5, 2019, at Heritage Palms Golf and Country Club. Canterbury wishes to thank the more than 220 guests who gathered for a night of fantastic food, live music, dancing, and fabulous auction items. Canterbury would also like to extend gratitude to our presenting sponsor, FineMark National Bank & Trust, along with our many other generous sponsors as noted below.
During the Live Auction, NBC2 news anchor and Canterbury parent, Kellie Burns, joined forces with auctioneer Jay Severson to motivate the crowd to bid high on wonderful live auction packages that included everything from amazing trips and adventures to special dinners and experiences. Also, more than $50,000 raised at the event will support this year’s Grant a Wish project to renovate Canterbury’s Hanno Dining Hall.
Thank you to everyone for their support of this long-standing Canterbury School tradition, with special thanks to our event co-chairs, Elizabeth Cameratta and Deena Schwartz.
