The 2023 EC Auction Gala brought together more than 300 supporters at The Tides Estate in North Haledon for a night of fellowship and fundraising. The generous Eastern Christian School community brought in a record breaking total–more than $250,146 toward continuing the mission of raising up the next generation to impact the world for Christ.
The crowd’s enthusiasm was evident, even before the event began, as bidders were actively competing (and buying!) early in the week. With 120 items available in the live and silent auctions there was something for everyone. The dart game in the Man Cave drew a large crowd of competitors and the Golden Eagle drawing made one Billy Joel fan very happy.
The community came together at the end of the evening in an incredible way to raise more than $53,000 just through the Fund-a-Need portion of the evening, this year providing an enhanced chapel worship experience at the Midland Park campus, technology upgrades for the new computer lab at the Wyckoff campus, and new furniture for the new ditto Student Commons at the North Haledon campus.
The Spring Auction Gala, EC’s largest fundraiser of the year, was once again a great success. Together, this diverse group of parents and supporters honored God, supported the mission of Eastern Christian, and had a ton of fun!
Thank you to our sponsors, our guests, and all of the volunteers who worked so hard. You have been a blessing to all of us at Eastern Christian School.
