Washington, CT - On the evening of April 28, Glenholme parents, faculty, and supporters gathered at the Heritage Hotel in Southbury, CT for a special Parents’ Weekend tradition: the annual Live Auction. After a video presentation celebrating Devereux’s incredible 100 year anniversary, five parents were presented with awards acknowledging their tireless efforts and many contributions to the Glenholme community - including the coveted “Parents of the Year Award” and the “We’ll Have Our People Call Your People” Award. Following the award ceremony, parent Vicki Kleinman gave a touching and powerful speech about the impact Glenholme has had on her son and her family, which was met with laughter, tears, and enthusiastic applause.

As the auction began, silver bidding paddles glimmered with activity from every corner of the room, and an incredible selection of trips, tours, adventures, and honors were up for grabs to the highest bidder. Parents even took the microphone to auction off some items of their own - including walk-on roles in film and television! Just before the results were tallied, Arts Director Matt DeLong spoke passionately about the success of Glenholme’s Weekend Arts Initiative. His speech was met with an outpouring of support from parents and faculty, whose donations will allow this important program to continue.

Two days of joy, laughter, community excitement, and incredible generosity resulted in another tremendously successful Parents' Weekend, with over $200,000 raised for The Center for the Arts endowment and for the new soccer field.
