Biennial Dinner Auction Raises More Than $175,000 for Children of Rossman School


March 10, 2014

More than 250 people attended the “Golden Apple Gala,” a night of philanthropy and fun at Rossman School’s biennial dinner auction. The event on Saturday, March 8, at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center allowed the Rossman School community to gather, bid in silent and live auctions, and enjoy an exquisite dinner.

The dazzling array of items up for grabs in the auctions — including sensational jewelry, rare sports memorabilia, vacations, Rossman Rarities and much more — helped the Rossman School Parents’ Club raise more than $175,000 for the children of Rossman School. Five dedicated parents — Lucie Dempsey, Caroline Duecker, Courtney Engler, Colleen Geller and Tracey Temanson — chaired the event. Rossman parent Julie (Buck) Brooks served as the evening’s emcee, and KSDK’s Rene Knott led the live auction.

The money raised from the Gala will be used to increase the School's endowment, fulfill teacher wishlists and rennovate the kitchen and dining room.
