Tasting Party launches ‘auction season’ for The Bishop’s School


The Bishop’s School’s annual fundraiser “All Aboard! U.S.S. Bishop’s,” the 2014 auction co-chaired by current Bishop’s parents Alice Hayes of La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe residents Dawn Calvetti and Margot Kerr, will be held on the school’s campus on April 12. The auction season officially launched on Jan. 25 during the school’s Tastings Party, an evening of delicious food and wine held at the Rancho Santa Fe home of Bishop’s parents Tricia and Raymond Faltinsky.

All Aboard! U.S.S. Bishop’s, the school’s 29th annual auction, will feature a dinner for 500; dancing to the electrifying entertainment of Jay Sterling Music; a wine auction; and live and silent auctions with an emphasis on items that offer unique experiences.

Funds raised at the April 12 event will support the school’s “Student Need-based Financial Aid and Faculty Professional Growth Programs.” Each year, The Bishop’s School annual auction raises approximately $1 million in direct support of these two “crucial programs.” For information on All Aboard! U.S.S. Bishop’s, the Tastings Party, underwriting or donations, contact the school’s Advancement Office at (858) 875-0804.
