May 5 Trip Details — Let the Adventure Begin!
Dust off your passport and government issued photo ID, the "From Here...Anywhere" Auction is right around the corner on May 5 at 6 p.m. at The Limelight Hotel! Thank you for traveling with us.
It's going to be a great evening for our favorite cause: our students.
Here are some packing list recommendations for maximum fun (and fundraising)!
Attire Fit for First Class
Think your best jet-setting style from the golden age of travel, safari chic, and vintage elegance — anything that's polished and sophisticated and would make your grandparents proud.
Be sure to try the specialty margaritas designed by Community School parent Denis Coté and delicious Cinco de Mayo-inspired appetizers and entrées. Complimentary beer, wine, and full bar offerings will also be available.
DJ Nate will get the party started with dancing in the Limelight Living Room after the dinner and auction program. The dance party will be open to the entire CS community, so please help us spread the word!

Your Auction Tour Guides
THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS SPONSORS!
The Limelight Hotel
Join us for a philanthropic adventure! Community School's Annual Auction is the school's primary fundraising event, one that is not to be missed. The event will include a live auction, paddle up, party sign-ups, and raffle.
This year, we will welcome approximately 150 parents, faculty, alumni, and friends of the school.
As with most independent schools, tuition and fees do not cover Community School's operating costs. The school relies on donations to the Annual Fund and proceeds from fundraising events like the Annual Auction. We NEED to raise $150,000 at the auction to support school programs.
This annual party is one of Community School's most important fundraisers and benefits those who matter most — our students. The auction helps sustain everything that makes Community School an exceptional and unique learning environment, including academics, the arts, athletics, the Outdoor Program, faculty development, and financial aid.
