THE VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Auction for Financial Aid is now an ONLINE AUCTION and virtual Support-A-Scholar paddle raise!

While we are disappointed not to gather with so many members of our amazing community, the spirit of Burke’s Annual Auction for Financial Aid will live on. Now, more than ever, your support of Financial Aid will have a critical and long-lasting impact on Burke’s ability to be able to support our families and students.
How Can You Help?

Online Auction: our online auction is open from April 8 to April 18 at 8 PM. We invite you to bid on exciting items and enjoyable experiences - and support Financial Aid at the same time.

Paddle Raise: this event’s "Support-A-Scholar" paddle provides a significant portion of our Financial Aid funds. We hope that our community of supporters will engage online and generously donate via our virtual paddle raise, which will be live April 8-18.

For Ticket-Holders

Purchased tickets to the live event can be considered a donation to Financial Aid or can be refunded. We are working to contact all those who have purchased event tickets. If you have purchased tickets but haven’t yet heard from us, please contact Susan Jones in the Development Office. As the school is closed for business, mail may be delayed. If you have recently sent mail to us, thank you for your patience and understanding.

Event Sponsors

A very special thank you to all of our generous sponsors:


Honoring Monica


At the end of this school year, we will celebrate the retirement of Monica Miracky, our beloved Assistant Head of School for Programs & Head of Middle School, after 40 years of dedication to Burke. Though we are unable to raise a glass to her in person at our Auction, we hope that you will join us in celebrating Monica and honoring her from afar by supporting Burke’s Financial Aid Program.
