Purple Wave 2016 Emotional Appeal
Proceeds from the 2016 Purple Wave Emotional Appeal will again support the School's three-year program to refine and revamp the School foodservice operation and establish a comprehensive JK-12 food-education program. Last year, the Emotional Appeal raised $110,000 to cover new kitchen equipment as the School commits to a made-from-scratch program, and to update and streamline the serving area including the addition of a new checkout system to improve the flow of students into the lunchroom.
For more than 26 years, the Benefit Board at North Shore has raised funds through its annual event. Since 1981, the Benefit Board has raised over $5 million to support areas of the School not covered by the annual operating budget, such as the Curriculum and Teaching Fund, the Benefit Board Supplemental Scholarship Fund, faculty enrichment grants, and major capital projects, such as the renovation of the Lower School, the construction of the Conant Science Center, and most recenlty the renovation of the Auditorium and Arts Center. In addition to fundraising, the annual event brings together the entire North Shore community in a warm, friendly environment where parents, faculty, alumni and friends of North Shore connect, socialize and, most importantly, have fun.
