University School of NSU’s 21st Annual “Main Event” Raises $320,000 to Support Students

For this year’s 21st Annual University School of NSU “Main Event” fundraiser, participants were invited to “Join the Family” by making a lasting educational contribution to their child’s future.

The family-themed event took place on Feb. 8 at Martorano’s at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and featured dinner, an open bar, silent and live auctions, and musical entertainment throughout the night. All proceeds from the festive evening benefit University School and its pre-k through 12th grade students.

In an exciting twist to this year’s event, the silent auction began early with a special online bidding option for such prizes as:

•    A 50 percent tuition raffle,
•    A New England Patriot’s autographed helmet,
•    Miami Marlins deluxe fan packages,
•    A trip to California to meet American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez and stay for the show,
•    A Jay Leno package that included airfare and tickets to his show,
•    And several vacation packages such as one featuring a chartered yacht in the Grand Cayman Islands.

The lucky bidders left the “Join the Family” themed event with the knowledge that their generosity raised more than $320,000 to help fund educational opportunities for students at one of South Florida’s premier private preparatory schools.

In order to be placed on the guest list for next year’s University School of NSU Main Event, please call (954) 262-4475.
