Fall Family Weekend Auction a Record Breaker

October, 2012

The M/S Mt. Washington provided a cozy atmosphere for Brewster’s Fall Family Weekend Auction Fundraisers. The attendees -- 320  parents, grandparents, staff, friends, and even a few students -- came aboard the docked steamship to enjoy the evening, with The Mount staff serving dinner, dessert, and cocktails.

Thank you to our student entertainers who shared their musical, dance, and poetic talents: Shira Braiterman ’13, Will Foote ’13, Taylor Cantrall ’13, Megan Harp ’14, and Ashley Rogers ’13.

The silent and live auctions were made possible by the many generous and creative contributions of Brewster families, friends, and area businesses.

One of the highlights of the Live Auction was a surprise item – a Brewster quilt, handcrafted by a parent of a senior (as well as a graduate), garnered $6,000. G-Lo’s now famous Italian feast went to a hungry bidder for $8,500, and various trips and packages for one-of-a-kind adventures created a flurry of bidding. The entire fundraising effort, including sponsorships, raffle, and auction purchases, totalled just over $151,000.

The efforts of the auction chairs: Josephine Grayson (Bradley ’14) , Darla Monzione (Bella ’15), and Raquel Rogers (Ashley ’13) started in the spring of 2012 and organized and worked with the auction committee of Brewster parents.

The dynamic auctioneer, Bill Zafirson (P'11) opened the Live Auction sharing his affinity for the school as the parent of a 2011 graduate. Bill expressed that his son's success, now a college sophomore, is a direct result of his experience at Brewster.
