FOT Black & White Bash Gala and Online Auction

101 Reasons to Celebrate

Please join Thorp teachers, parents, and friends in making an impact on the future of Thorp Scholastic Academy and its students at this year’s Black & White Bash.  We will be celebrating Thorp’s 101-year anniversary and the 101 reasons (and more) that make it great to be a part of the Thorp community.  Show your Eagle spirit by bidding on amazing silent and live auction items generously donated by families, friends, and Chicagoland businesses, while enjoying a night of music, dancing, savory bites, and delicious drinks.

3-hour open bar, 7-10 pm and a buffet of heavy hor d’oeuvres with vegetarian options. Live and silent auctions with amazing deals, including treasured classroom creations, restaurant/brewery packages, memberships, event tickets, urban garden experience, and Principal-for-a-day! Music, photobooth, wine-pull, raffles, after-party at Legno.

Proceeds from the event will go toward improving student outdoor activity spaces and funding of special programs at Thorp.  Last year’s centennial celebration, Hats Off to 100 Years, was a big success, raising nearly $25,000.  This year, we are hoping to keep the momentum going and are excited to support Thorp in its next century of educating the next generation of innovative and thoughtful leaders.

Attendees who are dressed in festive black and/or white attire will be automatically entered in a raffle to win a prize.
