The Reunion Giving program of the Annual Fund is led by volunteers from each reunion class who reach out to classmates about giving back to HB. The object of Reunion Giving is to increase class participation in honor of this milestone, while at the same time raising awareness about the need for support for HB's Annual Fund. We are grateful to all who support the HB community with their Reunion gifts to the Annual Fund.
Alumnae can help their classes stand above the rest at their reunion in May. A gift will not only support a class project (download a list of Suggested Reunion Giving Projects here), but will also help a class in the following competitions. During Reunion festivities, we present awards to our Alumnae based on Reunion Annual Fund Giving results. Gifts must be received prior to Reunion Weekend to count towards these awards.
The Jane Geckler Seelbach Driver 1939 Champagne Cup
The class with the highest percentage of Annual Fund participation is served champagne at a special presentation during the Alumnae Weekend Luncheon. At the 2019 Reunion celebration, the Class of 1954 won the Champagne Cup.
HB Alumnae Association Past Presidents' Bowl
The class giving the most dollars to the Annual Fund is presented this prestigious bowl honoring the past presidents of the Alumnae Council. The Class of 1949 was the winner of the Presidents' Bowl.
Young Alumnae Participation Award
New at Alumnae Weekend 2017, the Young Alumnae Participation Award recognized the class up to 15 years from graduation who has achieved the highest class participation in Annual Fund giving. The Class of 2014 won the Young Alumnae Participation award at Alumnae Weekend 2019 - Congratulations!
