Horizons at New Canaan Country School (NCCS) will hold its biennial benefit on Saturday, June 4 in the Athletics & Wellness Center on the campus of NCCS beginning at 6:00 p.m. This fundraising event is open to the public and will include dinner, dancing, and a live auction.
The evening’s theme is "Recipe for Success,” celebrating the Horizons secret sauce, which is the perfect blend of academics and enrichments to both nurture students and push them to take risks and be the best they can be. When Horizons makes a commitment to a student and their family, it is a long-term commitment. Many students enter the program in kindergarten and are with us until they graduate high school. We have a proven track record in terms of our academic and enrichment programming, which is demonstrated by our outcomes. 100% of Horizons at NCCS high school seniors graduated in 2021 and 91% were enrolled in college this past fall.
The live auction will be led by Patrick Tully, New York’s leading independent benefit Auctioneer with over twenty years of live auction experience. The evening is being supported by many generous sponsors, including platinum sponsors: Alvarez & Marsal, Alvarez & Marsal Capital, Kirkland & Ellis, The McCarthy Family, and the O’Reilly Family Foundation. Gold Sponsors include JPMorgan Chase & Co with Carey Ogden, Banker Associate for JPMorgan Chase serving as an Honorary Committee Chair, and Shoreline Pools, Inc. with Lindsay Kollar, Marketing Director for Shoreline Pools Inc. serving as an Honorary Committee Chair.
