LA JOLLA — The Bishop’s School’s Say You Will Fundraiser, held April 16, was a sold-out event. Local celebrity emcee Rory Devine revved up the crowd as she announced speakers and live auction items, including a white Labrador puppy, a private lunch with Condoleezza Rice and travel opportunities.
A video was shown featuring Bishop’s teachers discussing the benefits they’ve enjoyed through the faculty professional growth program, which gives them the resources to attend conferences, develop new courses and challenge themselves with advanced studies in their respective fields; alumnus Alex Afsahi shared his experiences as a recipient of student financial aid, his resulting education at Yale and his current role as an educator in post-Apartheid South Africa; and finally, last but certainly not least, a performance by world-famous rock band Foreigner. It was an evening not to be forgotten with an outcome that will benefit the Bishop’s community for years to come.
