What is A Night for Excellence?

A Night for Excellence is AWFAE’s annual fundraising event. Each year parents, faculty, staff, and the community gather for a evening of hors d’oeuvres, drinks, live music, and a buffet dinner.

We hold three auctions during the event, all with amazing items kindly donated to us: a Chinese auction, a Silent auction and a Live auction.

Our entertaining Live auction sees members of the community vying for hot-ticket items like sporting event tickets (Patriots, Celtics, Bruins…), vacation home rentals (such as Las Vegas, NV or York Beach, ME), and other once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

All are invited to socialize while supporting academic excellence in our schools. We always look forward to seeing you.
