Celebrate Summit is our biggest fundraiser of the year, usually held at a local destination with food, drink and entertainment. This year we are gathering virtually for a holiday concert that the whole family can enjoy!

We are still hosting an online auction November 18-December 2 full of experiences, items – and of course Summit’s coveted parking spaces! Click here to visit the Celebrate Summit website.

As with just about everything this year, fundraising at Summit has been modified, but it is more important than ever for Summit to raise funds through donations to ensure our doors remain open, whether for in-person learning or virtual. Summit’s tuition was reduced this year due to the pandemic in an effort to make Summit more accessible for families, and that tuition only covers 60 percent of our operating costs. We rely on the financial support from our families (past and present) and the community to help us provide a top-notch educational experience for our students.

For this year’s event you can relax at home with your family and enjoy a live winter concert on Friday, December 4, from 7-8 p.m. featuring Luke Spehar, a popular singer who has a special, family connection with one of our Summit families (the Mielke family). Summit families and staff will make appearances and we hope your whole family joins in with the special bells that went home this week for a rousing rendition of Jingle Bells.

This virtual concert is FREE for our families, Luke’s fans and everyone in the community and will be broadcast on YouTube and Facebook Live. Donations will be accepted through this special event website. You can also purchase special event baskets that include popcorn/treats and/or local restaurant gift cards that you can use for dinner that night during the concert – or any other time. These also make great gifts!

All proceeds benefit Summit Schools. We thank our generous sponsors and donors for making this event possible. Please share this with family, friends and neighbors who want to support Summit. Happy shopping and bidding – and we’ll see you online on December 4!
