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!
Barbara Zichichi, P'20 Spring Event Chair

The Kingtucky Derby Committee is pleased to announce the band for the April 28 Gala: The Short Bus! The Short Bus is a multi-award winning cover band that cranks out the best rock & roll dance music known to the modern world (well, at least New England and NY). Just ask Ashleigh Banfield (the host of HLN"S Crime and Justice) who had the band play at her wedding this past week: "They were just a fantastic band. I can't even tell you how great they were."(People.com). The Short Bus has been voted the Best Cover Band in the Best of the Gold Coast and Fairfield County Weekly reader polls for the past 7 years. A first for any band in this area! Their music and energy on stage keeps the party going and the crowd dancing all night long. No matter what age you are or what type of music you like, you'll find lots to love with this band. So, come ride the bus!
