Thank you for showing your support of our children by attending this spectacular, hair-raising event. At its core, Evergreen is a place for children to grow together into thoughtful, joyful, and virtuous citizens of the world. It is fitting that our benefit is a celebration of our children, our community, and our school. Our Haunted Garden theme highlights the spirit of fun and friendship in the dark and steamy air. Planning this event took countless hours of work by a large group of dedicated volunteers. From decorations to catalogs, ticket sales, Love Notes, ads, food, beverages, and logistics, I deeply appreciate everyone’s tireless efforts. In particular, our Co-chairs Kim Cantor and Cori Lathan and Decoration Chair Donna Kerr deserve special recognition for making this event possible. I am deeply grateful for their leadership, vision, teamwork, and creativity. We have many wonderful items to offer. Please bid generously, as Auction proceeds directly support classroom programs and special projects—and ultimately our children. Enjoy the evening! Sincerely,

John DeMarchi Head of School
