On Friday, February 21, 2020, the EHS community gathered for an elegant evening to celebrate Episcopal High School at Blue Knight Masquerade! The 36th annual Auction, held on campus in the spectacular Hildebrand Athletic Center, raised necessary revenue for the School. Co-chairs Elizabeth and Will Galtney, Daryl and Aaron Hoover, and Carol and Gregg Thompson, along with countless volunteers and generous donors, raised an astounding $1.4 million for the School's operating budget.
Decorations Chairs Jennifer Black and Kristi Kincannon worked with Prime Systems, City Kitchen, and Art Attack to transform the Scurlock and Alkek Gyms into an elegant evening full of mystery. Guests arrived in beautiful blue evening gowns, black tie, and fun masks. All enjoyed the evening, while bidding in the Silent Auction for the first part of the evening. After enjoying a gourmet dinner, guests raised their bid cards high for the outstanding Live Auction. All "won big" while supporting EHS. During the Pillars Up portion of the Live Auction, the generous EHS community raised an astounding $230,000 for Episcopal, supporting the Four Pillars.
With our Blue Knight Masquerade complete, EHS is gearing up for Auction 2021 "Light up the Knight." Co-chairs Michelle Juden and Caren McKinnie promise an unforgettable evening as we celebrate all of the ways that EHS empowers our Knights to find their Inner Genius. To quote Maya Angelou, "Nothing can dim the light that shines from within." Save the date for February 19, 2021.
