The air was alive with excitement as guest entered Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School’s Bonne Chance Auction; the single largest fundraising event to support its students and their programs. The 45th annual auction was led by co-chairs Kelly Johnson and Ann Griesedieck. The theme was Black Tie & Blue Jeans with the more than 250 guests teaming formal with informal wear. The Children’s Challenge Match had an anonymous donor commit up to $100,000 for every dollar pledged and guests quickly raised their paddles. The funds support a new makerspace, global education center, media arts studio, and student commons. The event would not have been a success without the more than 100 students, parents, faculty, and staff who volunteered that evening.
