More than 370 parents, alumni, faculty and staff were feted at the quickly-sold-out event with custom videos, singing, live music, dancers, top-drawer food and drink, a hot band and great company. The event also served as the capstone for the school’s 125th anniversary celebration.

Attendees at Silent Auction


Our amazing items, games, sign-up parties, and one-of-a-kind experiences, including tickets to the Emmys, a mini-Tesla and special wine selections, were a big success. For our lower school students were sign-ups for Harker’s 125th Anniversary Birthday Bash. And families of seniors bid on the much-sought-after reserved seating for graduation.
