St. John school hosts 33rd annual fundraiser

A St. John school hopes to add money to their scholarship fund with an upcoming fundraiser.

Gifft Hill School is holding its’ 33 annual auction Saturday March 23.

The theme is Starry Night. 

They say its’ to reinforce the bright future made possible by the gift of education.

Auction proceeds benefit the Gifft Hill School Scholarship Fund.

That provides financial aid to over 80% of the school’s 150 students in preschool through 12thgrade on St. John.  

“The Auction will be a celebration of everything that makes Gifft Hill School thrive:  Board, faculty, students, parents, community, donors and our islands,” said Beth Jones, Gifft Hill School’s Director of Advancement. “For 32 years, this event has raised funds for the Scholarship Fund which is even more important now as our families navigate the recovery.  We are grateful to be part of this amazing community, and fortunate to be on St. John surrounded by an incredible natural resource that expands the classroom experience for our students daily.”

The Auction, the 33rd in the school’s history, will be held at a beautiful villa in Chocolate Hole owned by Glen and Jo Ann Hall on Saturday, March 23. The event will include an online silent auction that will close before the event starts, as well as a silent auction at the event and a fun-filled, entertaining live auction.
