Annual Fundraiser

     Who's Coming to Dinner?

     Saturday, January 25, 2020, 6:30 p.m.


Thank You for Coming to Dinner!

Whether you were at the event, or demonstrated your support through sponsorships and online bidding, we are so grateful for your generosity. Over 350 guests joined together for an incredible evening that showcased the best of Bernard Zell. The night wouldn't have been possible without the time and talents of our incredible event chairs, Rebecca Graines and Marcy Zoller, the Fundraiser Committee, Bernard Zell faculty and staff, event volunteers, sponsors and all of our guests.

We are thrilled to announce that on Saturday evening, we raised over $275,000 - providing essential funding for classroom improvements, equipment for our expanded space, affordability initiatives and so much more! Your support will ensure that our school continues to develop engaged, confident learners and compassionate leaders for a stronger, more vibrant community and world.

Guests in attendance were inspired by our Mitzvah Moment video, which we are excited to share with our entire community. You can also check out the event photos on Facebook and Instagram!

Thank you for all of your support!

Congratulations to our Winners of the Evening!
