Come to the Table
Oh, what a night! Ben Lippen’s very first long table dinner and silent auction on March 25 was a smashing success. The evening included appetizers, festive beverages hand-crafted by the Thirsty Mare, and time to peruse auction stations while enjoying the talents of the Ben Lippen Blue Grass Band. Our beloved Touchdown Bell, pictured in Ben Lippen’s very first yearbook in 1942, resumed its original purpose as a dinner bell, this time calling 250 guests to gather under the tent and around the table.
Dinner included a beautiful rendition of “Promises” by High School A Cappella, lively table conversation, and amazing charcuterie spread by Queen’s Manna. Parent, teacher, and student testimonies demonstrated how God has used Ben Lippen School to inspire and influence their lives. Dr. Fajardo spoke boldly about Ben Lippen’s commitment to stay true to who are, reinforced our priorities of God, Family, and Country, and revealed plans for our next exciting building project, the Center for Life Impact. Boasting six additional classrooms, large gathering places, and space for student resources, the Center for Life Impact will create new opportunities for our extraordinary community to continue to learn, connect, grow, and flourish. The evening concluded back on the lawn with specialty coffees and desserts, laughter and cheer, a last-minute bidding frenzy, and colorful firework display.
We are incredibly thankful for many, many hands that made this evening such a success, and for those who donated, collected, and purchased auction items. We are already planning and dreaming our next great event. Stay tuned for your chance to get involved!
