At this year’s Winter Gala, it was our pleasure to honor Dr.
Lydia H. Soifer as we celebrated the cold days of winter and the warm hearts of
Eagle Hill School. Dr. Soifer’s friends and family joined honorary co-chairs
Amy Jo and Bill Frischling, current parents, alumni parents, alumni, members of
the Board of Trustees, and Eagle Hill faculty and staff for the event.
Guests took part in the Wine Grab Bag, the silent auction, the live auction, and the paddle raise – all raising essential funds for Eagle Hill. Highlights of the Live Auction included a “Quintessential New York” package (an overnight stay in Manhattan, 2 tickets to Saturday Night Live, and 2 producer’s tickets to Hamilton), a “Skier’s Paradise” package (a week in Park City, Utah), and, of course, Head of School for the Day for two EHS students. The auction piece of the evening ended with the paddle raise – which will support the purchase of new transportation for the school. Eagle Hill students rely on the use of transportation for athletic games, community service, and field trips.
The support of the Eagle Hill community at this annual event is tremendously important. Donations are still welcome – please click here to make a tax-deductible contribution of any amount. Your support is greatly appreciated.
