Cheers for Decade of Record Generosity
HE ANNUAL Fund Thank-You Party just keeps on truckin’. Despite a gloomy forecast, nearly 250 people gathered on the Upper School campus for a streetlike festival of food, drink, conversation, and jazz — all in spirited celebration of another successful year of community generosity.
’Wick parents, alumni, faculty, and staff united to raise a glass (or a gourmet slice
of pizza) to more than $4 million in contributions — with every dollar dedicated to sustaining and enhancing the Brunswick experience for present and future boys. Parent participation reached 99 percent for the 10th year in a row, while faculty and staff hit the one-hundred percent mark for the eighth straight giving season. Cheers are in order for loyal alumnus and parent Jimmy Ritman ’94, P ’28, ’31 for volunteering his time and energy to serve as Annual Fund Chairman. 01 Tents allowed for easy and dry access to the ever-popular pizza, taco, and beer trucks. 02 Rich Powers P ’16, ’19; and Meline Dickson P ’11, ’15, ’18 03 Catherine Tompkins P ’28, Abby Ritman P ’28, ’31; and Leigh Ann Ryan P ’28, ’32 04 Victoria Gonzalez P ’29 enjoys dinner and a glass of wine. 05 Can you say “Boxcar Cantina”? 04
