Liggett Knight, held on Friday, Nov. 14, at the Detroit Athletic Club, brought together more than 320 parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of Liggett to raise funds for University Liggett School.
More than $300,000 was brought in for the school and its programming, thanks to our sponsors and generous friends who donated items for the fishbowl, silent and live auctions.
Jewelry, trips, one-of-a-kind experiences, student artwork and more were auctioned off. The event was sold out, but a lot of support came from people taking advantage of ClickBid, which allowed people who couldn't attend the event the opportunity to bid from the comfort of their own homes using a computer, tablet or smartphone.
"We want to send a sincere thank you to all the sponsors, volunteers and donors, and especially event chairs Katie Drettmann and Jenny Fruehauf (and their families), who made Liggett Knight a great success," says Kelley Hamilton, Associate Head of School for Advancement. "This event has grown and evolved over the years, and it is humbling to see and feel the support that the school receives from so many different people, all of whom love the school and value its mission."
We thank you, all, for your generous support!
