Spring Gala – “Come Fly With Us”

May 19 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

4th Annual Spring Fundraiser

“Come Fly With Us”

Saturday, May 19th


guest of honor Bob Norris


Our Spring Gala is the premier fundraising event of the year for the Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School, as it brings together parents, alumni, alumni parents, grandparents and our friends in the Berkshire community under one tent to celebrate the wonders of a Waldorf education and the community of people with the common purpose of supporting the ideals and values of our school.

Bob Norris, beloved faculty member and benefactor of the Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School, will be honored for his long time commitment to the school. Help us celebrate Bob’s 37 years as a member of the Steiner family!

Your commitment to a sponsorship or a gift is what makes it possible for us to support our faculty, provide tuition assistance for a diverse community and provide an innovative curriculum for our students.  We invite you to join us for an evening of fun and good company…and to raise the paddle with enthusiasm!

Our fundraising goal for the annual spring gala is $50,000.  Scroll down for more information, to become a sponsor, or purchase tickets.
