CFS Gala

FRIDAY, MAY 8, 2020 
THE BALDWIN SCHOOL 

Whether you are a fan of Game of Thrones, Harry Potter or King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, we are eager for you to join us for an evening of medieval and magical merriment at our 7th annual Gala, “A Night in Griffindor” on Friday, May 8, 2020. Inspired by the Baldwin School’s gorgeous Frank Furness architecture, we invite you to step into a world of wizardry and (dire)wolves and Griffins and gargoyles, while celebrating the accomplishments of 180 CFS “Griffins” which your sponsorship supports. Some of these amazing 180 high-achieving young men will be on hand to charm and bewitch you.
 
Please join us at the Sponsor or Patron level for “A Night in Griffindor.” In addition to a wonderful program of music by the incomparable CFS Choir and the presentation of our inaugural CFS Medal to three amazing women and longtime supporters of the school, the event will feature fine food, fun entertainment and the chance to mingle with old and new friends – generous individuals who care about changing lives through the magic of education.
The Inaugural Church Farm School Medal 

2020 Awardees:

Caroline Buck Rogers
Cannie Crysler Shafer 

Church Farm School is pleased to announce that in conjunction with the 7th Annual Gala, we will be honoring three amazing women with the inaugural Church Farm School Medal in acknowledgement of their collective and individual history of service to CFS and education.
 
As the Gala is being held at a historic school known for educating strong, independent women, it is only fitting that we honor three women who first met at the Shipley School, and went on to lives of service to Church Farm School, organizations that support underserved students and their own communities.
