International Festival and Auction (IFA)

Birchwood School of Hawken will hold its 25th Annual International Festival & Auction in the Spring of 2020. Hosted by the Birchwood School of Hawken Parents’ Association, this event is the school’s largest fundraiser of the year with proceeds benefiting our Signature Programs, teacher professional development and an annual fund-a-need project that in past years has supported visual and performing arts programs, our library, in-room air conditioning, performance risers, and much more. It is also an enjoyable afternoon featuring a potluck meal sharing international dishes, live and silent auctions and raffles, music, and children’s activities.

Approximately 500 participants join together every year to celebrate Birchwood’s cultural diversity and to raise funds that are vital for important projects and initiatives. Attendance is open to everyone. Please join us!

Spring 2020


Why should I participate?
This unique event intersects with the school's mission and has the capacity to strengthen the school like no other. The stronger the school becomes, the greater its impact will be on the individual lives of everyone involved in the school. The more we give, the stronger we make Birchwood, the stronger Birchwood becomes, the more we all reap the benefits!
For the past twenty-three years, the IFA has been known for being the best international potluck in town! Will it be again this year too? To make this happen, we need your food donations to make this a multi-cultural eating extravaganza! We are asking every family to bring a food donation that feeds at least 12 people.

Thank you for your support and helping us make this the best IFA event yet!
