GALA 2019: HEART OF GOLD

The Board of Trustees hosts an annual event and auction to build the School’s Master Teacher Endowment and to increase support for faculty without resorting to increases in tuition. In doing so, Heritage Hall can attract and retain leading teachers who excel at challenging, engaging and inspiring our students. Passionate teaching is fundamental to the Heritage Hall experience, and the event’s net proceeds enable the School to bring the best and brightest teachers into our classrooms.

Fund it. Snap it. Tag it. Be a part of it.

Watch this important video to find out more about this exciting schoolwide project for Gala 2019: Heart of Gold, and make your mark on Heritage Hall's campus forever.

LeNorman and Welker Families - 2019 Heart of Gold Benefactors

We gratefully acknowledge the LeNorman and Welker families as grand benefactors of the 2019 Gala: Heart of Gold, Heritage Hall’s annual fundraiser to support the School’s teacher bonuses and the Teacher Endowment Fund.
 
Both families share a deep appreciation for our faculty and staff at Heritage Hall. As Heart of Gold sponsors, supporters like the LeNormans and the Welkers directly contribute to the School’s ability to attract and retain the best and brightest teachers for Heritage Hall students.  
 
“The LeNorman and Welker families represent a cross section of donors to the School,” David Le Norman said. “That is, alumni who have enjoyed the benefits of a Heritage Hall education and want the same experience for future generations, and parents who wisely chose Heritage Hall to give their children the best chance at future success.”
 
Both families have long standing relationships with the Chargers. David and Cory LeNorman are parents of Quincy LeNorman '21, and Leland and Shelly Welker are parents of Wes '00 and Anna Welker and Lee '95 and Sarah Bancroft Welker '97 and grandparents of Carter and Caroline Welker and Hallie, Rex and Cal '25 Welker.
 
We hope that you will consider following the lead of these two families by supporting our faculty with a sponsorship donation to the 2019 Gala: Heart of Gold, commemorating Heritage Hall’s 50th Anniversary. Sponsorship information is available at www.heritagehall.com/heartofgoldsponsor.
