We extend our deepest gratitude and appreciation to all those who volunteered, donated wines & live auction items, purchased Picnic Boxes and/or Snack Packs, sponsored CMIs and helped make the Crystal Fest another successful virtual auction and Fund-A-Need! 
Thank you to those who generously donated to Fund-A-Need, which went directly to support our Faculty Recruitment & Retention and Financial Aid Funds. If you were unable to attend, click here to see Head of School Kelly Sortino’s message for Fund-A-Need this year.

We are looking forward to seeing all our adult Crystal community members in-person at our Thank You event, the Crystal Palooza, on May 7 at the Upper School campus. The Crystal Palooza is an outdoor, music-festival celebration featuring student bands and the “Love Handles” complete with a guest appearance by our very own Kelly Sortino. The event is open to the entire Crystal adult community, and unique this year, is not ticketed.  Please join us!

Our events would not happen without contributions from our entire community.  We sincerely thank all the gala committee chairs and volunteers, all the Crystal parents, trustees, corporate sponsors, donors, faculty, administrators, staff, alumni families, and students. We are grateful and truly appreciative of all the time and effort contributed to the gala this year. Last, but certainly not least, thank you to all of you who joined us at the fundraiser on March 5 and those who will join us again to celebrate in-person on May 7.  We appreciate your participation in our virtual auctions and Fund-a-Need. Thank you for being the generous, supportive and inclusive community that makes Crystal so special!

With warmest regards,
Eloiza Meier, Danielle Conkling and Meena Rangachary
