Benefit Board

Our inaugural Scholarship Dinner O'er The Fields We'll Go!, held on February 24, was a tremendous success! Thank you to our Host Committee members, Benefit Board members, faculty, staff and school families who donated prior to the event and purchased faculty/staff tickets, those who bid on our three spectacular Live Auction items, Quinetta Bellows-Miller ’04 for her moving remarks and to everyone who raised their paddles to donate to NSCDS Scholarships! We are humbled and so, so grateful.
The energy at the dinner demonstrated our School community’s passion and commitment for making a North Shore Country Day School education accessible to all deserving students, no matter their economic means. Providing scholarships has been a priority of our school from the very beginning—nearly 100 years ago. Founding Headmaster Perry Dunlap Smith would be very proud to know that over $400,000 was raised through this event.
