Dearborn Academy Annual Benefit

The Dearborn Academy Annual Benefit

Since 1999, the Dearborn Academy Annual Benefit has been an annual event celebrating the success of Dearborn Academy students. Friends, donors, families, educators, local leaders, and former students and faculty return each year for this cherished community event. In the fall of 2014, in celebration of its 65th birthday, the format was changed to an evening "gala." This year marks our 70th anniversary, the theme of the 2019 Annual Benefit in support of the school. 

Please watch this space for more on the 2019 event after the first of the year. If you wish to donate in advance, please see the information below, or for more on the event and to be sure to be part of our mailing list, contact info@dearbornacademy.org with your email and mailing address.

Twice a year, Dearborn Academy's young artists offer a few pieces of their best work -- from unique hand-crafted jewelry to sculpture -- for sale to the general public. For many of our students, the Arts and Crafts Sale provides a special entrée into the world's of work, arts and crafts. This year's Winter Arts and Crafts Sale will take place on Thursday, December 20th from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. View and/or download the flyer.
