2023 Spring Benefit

2022 Gala & Auction co-chairs


Our 2023 Spring Benefit is an evening of fun and fundraising at the Alpine Country Club. Mix and mingle with fellow community members; enjoy a delicious assortment of cocktails and a sit-down dinner; bid on silent and live auction items, and dance the night away with DJ Prince Hakim!

We’ll recognize honorees Gene Love, a faculty member who has given 36 years (and counting!) or service to EMS, and Betsy Puchner, a past parent, former trustee, and longtime volunteer.

In addition to being the school’s biggest social event of the year, the Spring Benefit raises mission-critical funds to support our students and faculty.

We hope to see you there!

Help support The Elisabeth Morrow School Spring Benefit by contributing to our fundraising efforts. All donations to this event benefit every student, every day!

EMS prepares students for an impressive range of top-tier secondary schools.

Our students cultivate the ability to learn, think, explore, empathize, and lead. They graduate with the ability, mindset, and competencies to navigate a global world and are well-prepared to face an unknowable future.

Accustomed to a challenging academic environment, EMS students welcome the demands of competitive secondary schools and are often placed in advanced sections where they perform very well.
