Art was the star at Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn, 8515 Ridge Boulevard, last week as the 153-year-old school hosted another successful Fall Auction of Fine Art on Friday, October 21.
The “Cigar Night & Cocktail-themed” reception included a wide variety of sports, music, Hollywood and political memorabilia as well as animation, traditional art, fine jewelry and goods and services, according to Adelphi.
“This event is our first major fundraiser of the year and the support and attendance of our friends is so very important to the success of special events like this one,” said Albert Corhan, Adelphi’s director of academy operations. “The success of these special events allows Adelphi the ability to continue to service the growing needs of our students and our community with individuality and distinction as we have been doing for over 150 years.”
Founded in 1863, Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn stands as the oldest private, independent, continuing, co-educational, college preparatory day school in Brooklyn, according to Adelphi.
The mission of fundraisers like the art auction – this particular one courtesy of RSI Fundraising Auctions – is to enable Adelphi to continue its mission of “preparing young people for college, career and life, one day at a time.”
