“A Watkinson Affair” Returns

On Saturday, February 10th, Watkinson’s annual gala fundraiser, A Watkinson Affair returns! The school’s twelfth gala of this magnitude takes place at the Hartford Downtown Marriott and this year will be a celebration of the magical possibilities that open up for Watkinson students on a daily basis. The gala features an incredible live auction — featuring exciting items like a trip to Hawaii and front row seats to Graduation 2024, a silent auction with nearly 100 items to bid on, a beautiful dinner, a moving video tribute to our school, and of course dancing. Watkinson will celebrate Philanthropists of the Year John and Laura Dake Roche at the gala.

Proceeds from A Watkinson Affair support Watkinson’s Fund for Everyday Excellence, our annual fund. All gifts to the annual fund benefit all our private school students, helping them develop the skills to shape their lives and the world around them.
