Baylor Field House

The theme for the ninth biennial Celebrations auction on March 11 was “Rolling on the River,” and indeed the night rolled on to far surpass the net goal of $630,000 in support of the Baylor Annual Fund and the Heywood Stadium press box renovation.

More than 650 parents, alumni, grandparents and friends joined the fun, which kicked off with a festive cocktail reception and active bidding on Super Silent and Class Projects created by a team of talented parent volunteers. Once seated for dinner in a beautifully transformed Field House, guests were treated to a video showcasing the recently launched Forever Forward capital campaign. The evening concluded with a record-setting Live Auction, which raised over $273,000 towards the total goal for Celebrations.

As always, the success of Celebrations is due to the army of volunteers that dedicated over an entire year of their time, talents and energy to the event. Huge thanks to the event co-chairs, Lewie Card, Marvin Smith, Krista Stein and Charlotte White and the countless parent and alumni volunteers that made the success of Celebrations a reality.
