ALUMNI COUNCIL BENEFIT
THURSDAY, MAY 2, 2024
 
J´╗┐oin Head of School Dr. Tom Kelly, HM administrators, alumni from across the generations, and friends at this festive cocktail party offering a top-shelf bar, delicious light fare, and a fantastic silent auction. There will be plenty of opportunities to reconnect with classmates, network, forge new friendships, and pick up some terrific prizes!
 
All proceeds fund the Horace Mann Student Lunch Initiative, a project designed to raise the $260,000 needed to fund the lunch subsidy program for qualified students in Grades 6 through 12 who receive financial aid. This important aspect of the school's financial aid program provides approximately 190 students with prepaid school lunches, ensuring proper nutrition and helping to ease the economic burden on HM families. The Student Lunch Initiative is a great way to feel connected to today’s student body. Please help us make a difference in the lives of HM students and their families!
 
The event will take place at Monterey, located at 37 East 50th Street, at the corner of 50th Street and Madison Avenue in New York City. More information can be found here.
