2018 Affiliates Benefit


The Affiliates celebrated their annual benefit themed Do.Excel.Achieve. on Friday, October 5 on The Webb Schools campus. Over 300 parents, family and friends from around the world enjoyed an evening of entertainment, good food and amazing auction items.
 
Guests in attendance bid alongside mobile supporters on 57 unique silent auction items that included packages like: seats at Commencement, a Maui vacation and the highly coveted Day Student Parking Spot. With the help of our benefit co-chairs and volunteers, the lower field was transformed into a magical venue where guests showed their unwavering support for Webb. The highlight of the evening were 7 live auction items, one of which included a private cooking class with an accomplished chef and the Stockdales at their home; an item that sold for an astounding $18,000.
 
Our beloved humanities teacher, dance instructor and Dean of Students for the Junior Scholars Program Michael Szanyi spearheaded faculty contributions to the Webb Fund during the Fund-A-Need paddle raise. His efforts and the results, are a testament to how the Webb community supports our students and their ongoing success.
 
The Webb Schools encourages students to lead with distinction and serve with a generous spirit. This benefit is a yearly reminder of these principles in action. The evening raised over $260,000 and will help fund new technologies, improve learning spaces, and provide new possibilities for students and teachers to engage with the world.
 
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to our co-chairs Angelique Lazier P ’20, Andrea Mitchell P ’20, ’22 and Kathie West P ’14, ’18, ’22, Affiliates President, Laura Romero P ’12, ’15, ’20 and all our volunteers and donors for making this year’s benefit a success.

    “The process of finding the right college is more often than not riddled with anxiety for both students and their families. It is paradoxically both increasingly complex and more streamlined than ever. Technology allows students to simply add multiple colleges to the Common Application with a few clicks. And yet the convenience doesn’t reflect the intricate web of criteria that factor into applying to one college over another.”
     
    So opens the feature to our recent issue of WEBB Magazine. Reported and written by Christopher Michno, the piece delves into the myths and truths intertwined in the college admission process.
