Liggett Knight 2017

Save the Date:

Friday, November 10

at the

Detroit Athletic Club 

We are excited to announce that University Liggett School’s annual fundraising gala, Liggett Knight, will be held on Friday, November 10, 2017, at the Detroit Athletic Club. The evening includes dinner, an open bar, silent and live auctions, an afterglow and much more. Tickets go on sale early October.

This is our school’s premier fundraising event and we are excited to build on last year’s tremendous success when we raised nearly half a million dollars and hosted over 300 guests.

All proceeds from Liggett Knight support the school with everything from technology upgrades and academic initiatives, to building improvements, athletic equipment and more.

There are many ways to support Liggett Knight:
This year we are taking a new approach to the Liggett Knight Classroom Gift Baskets. We are asking parents to donate to any of the baskets. There are four Lower School Gift Baskets, which include items that will be exciting to a wide range of Lower School children. There are two Middle School Baskets and two Upper School Baskets that will appeal to our older students and adults. We hope that these smaller baskets will appeal to parents and students alike.

Please check out the Sign Up Genius links below, and consider donating an item. Items can be dropped off to the Advancement Office during summer break.

Thank you for your support of Liggett Knight!
