2017 Annual Benefit Celebrates All Things Heilicher
Thank you to the more than 400 guests who attended the 2017 Annual Benefit honoring Debbie and Jed Stillman on April 27 (family photo below). The evening was an exciting celebration of all things Heilicher, including "Education Stations" that gave guests a taste of the extraordinary education Heilicher provides. Watch the video (below), featuring students, alumni, and staff, for an engaging look at the Heilicher experience.
The event raised more than $320,000 to support Heilicher's academic program and scholarships. Biggest news of the night was a total of $70,000 raised for a new Helen Siegel Scholarship Fund, named for Mrs. Siegel who is retiring after 27 years of service at Heilicher. Thank you to the Baratz, Greenstein, and Schachtman Families for offering an inspirational match of $25,000 to help us toward our goal. The fund will provide tuition assistance to allow more families to access a Heilicher education.

We also want to extend appreciation to our honorary event co-chairs Eloise and Elliot Kaplan for their generosity and leadership. Thank you also to our many volunteers, including benefit committee members and grade-level ambassadors. We couldn't have done this without you.
We look forward to seeing everyone at next year's celebration!
