Legacy Dinner & Auction

In light of the White House advising all Americans to avoid groups of 10 and more, the Legacy Dinner & Auction scheduled for April 4 has been postponed. We will keep the Birchwood community updated as to when the event will be rescheduled. Thank you for your patience and understanding. The health and well-being of all members of our community remain our highest priority.


Help us secure our future by attending our first annual Legacy Dinner & Auction 

Saturday, April 4
LaCentre in Westlake
 

It Begins with an Investment

 
The Legacy Dinner & Auction is the launch of the Birchwood School of Hawkens Securing our Future initiative.
 
The launch of our Securing our Future initiative begins with an investment in our programs and our people – the Signature Programs and Professional Development. At the forefront of this effort are the founding teachers, who are carrying out the vision as set out 15 years ago to make the school a permanent and premier institution. These founders have led the Signature Programs, which are not only recognized regionally, statewide, and across the nation, but are more meaningfully making a lasting impact on Birchwood graduates with skills and habits developed at a very young age to becoming confident, forward-thinking, and enthusiastic learners and professionals that are eager to grow to their full potential. 
 
We ask the Birchwood Community and Friends to join us, in cocktail attire, on Saturday, April 4 for this adults-only event to support the Signature Programs and Professional Development. 

We want to fund these programs for the next three years!

Participating in History Day is a Signature Program that my daughter will build on in high school, college, and beyond. As her journey progressed through research, interviews, and the final performance her confidence soared. She could not wait to select her History Day topic the following year.
