“School of Rock” Friend-Raiser Sells Out!

12th Annual Sell Out
Over $60,000 Raised For Financial Literacy Programs

Tony Award winner Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash comedy play, School of Rock, proved to be a winning production for the Foundation’s 12th annual “Friend-Raising” event!  The show sold out and helped bring the total raised for financial literacy programs to $60,000.

The musical follows Dewey Finn, an out-of-work rock singer and guitarist who pretends to be a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. After identifying the musical talent in his students, Dewey forms a band of fifth-graders, in an attempt to win the upcoming Battle of the Bands contest.  It’s a musical for all ages!

Guests gathered in the private atrium at the historic Hippodrome Theater for their special day. Everyone enjoyed a selection of delicious brunch offerings on fine china and linen in our exclusive dining area, along with the pleasant company of their guests and colleagues before the Broadway production.
