Kingtucky Derby: November 1, 2017

Dear King Community,

We are so pleased to share with you that plans are underway to transform the Country Club of Darien into Churchill Downs for the Parents' Association 2018 Spring Event: Kingtucky Derby, to be held on April 28, 2018. This year, in addition to our traditional programming, we will pay special tribute to our Head of School, Tom Main. The Kingtucky Derby will be a fun evening, so start shopping for a hat and brush up on your knowledge of thoroughbreds! We are in the process of organizing the live and silent auctions, and would be most grateful for your support in helping us to collect and create an exciting array of items to offer. Please click HERE to donate an auction item. We welcome your ideas and contributions - whether you can donate tickets to a sporting event or concert, a vacation home, a luxe night out, or a once-in-a-lifetime experience. This year's Spring Event will support both Financial Aid and a new Innovation Lab in the Upper School. Our contributions to Financial Aid will further our goal of having a talented and diverse student body, regardless of financial circumstance. The Innovation Lab will be a place where teaching and learning will focus on student discovery, inquiry, experimentation, and creativity. Thank you so very much for your consideration, and we look forward to having you join us for this wonderful event. See you at the Kingtucky Derby!

Kindest Regards,

Barbara Zichichi, P'20 Spring Event Chair

Jess Drbul, P'21,'23,'23,'25,'28 President, Parents' Association
