Thank You to our 2021 Scholarship Dinner and Auction Volunteers and Donors!

2021 Scholarship Dinner

Roycemore greeted the 2021 attendees of the second virtual Auction and Scholarship Fundraising event. The show was jam-packed with musical acts featuring students, teachers and alumni, audience participation in games, and messages about the impact of giving.

Funds raised directly benefit Roycemore’s Scholarship and Financial Aid Program. Nearly half of Roycemore Students receive financial aid. This commitment has stood since Roycemore was formed. Roycemore is a place for those who are curious, who need space to stretch their minds, who soak up the individualized attention we are able to give with small class sizes. Economic barriers can be lifted through the support of our generous community.

While we would all like to be together, Roycemore’s community from all over the world was able to attend the virtual event, view it on social media and participate in the silent auction.  This would not have been possible without the hundreds of hours dedicated by our auction committee and by the generosity of our donors.  We have listed below our committee and donors, featuring many local businesses.
