Eton Academy Gala and Auction

“Unmasking the Art of Learning” was the theme for the 2019 Eton Academy Gala and Auction, chaired by Marcy and Richard Ford. Over 300 masquerade-masked school supporters packed the Academy to enjoy a silent and live auction, seated dinner and raffle. Founded in 1986, Eton Academy in Birmingham is a full-curriculum, independent school for students who learn differently, serving over 220 students in grades 1 through 12. The successful event raised nearly half a million dollars. Proceeds will go towards scholarships, classroom resources and teacher training.
