2018 Benefit Brunch: Special Opportunity

This year’s Benefit Brunch offered many exclusive and exciting opportunities to bid on and enjoy with friends and family. Although many sold out, we are offering a second chance at purchasing the ones below, some with very limited availability. Email development@kirby.org if you are interested.

The first is our Roaring Camp Rendezvous which has many seats left. This exclusive train excursion departs at 11AM on May 6th and includes a history of Santa Cruz trains with Kirby Alumni Trevor Park, Class of 2017 and train aficionado. When you arrive at Roaring Camp, you’ll be treated to a catered lunch at the picnic area with music from Kendra Hanson’s band, Brod Och Vatten (Bread and Water). This 3 hour journey is suitable for adults and children. Adult tickets are $200 per person and children are $100 per person.

The events below are Classes without Quizzes and are intended for adults only, as a social event, and will be enhanced by wine, cheese and friends. If you are interested in participating, please email development@kirby.org.

Very limited space is available in Dr. Brooks’ Storytelling workshop. Join Dr. Jason Brooks on Tuesday, April 17th at 7pm for an evening of exploration into ancient myth and storytelling traditions. You and your ‘classmates’ will share an enthralling evening of discussion around the use of storytelling in communication and how to use stories in educating and connecting with the contemporary teenager (and others!).

Just a couple of seats are left in an evening with Kevin Campbell discussing Government and Politics. Mr. Campbell will lead a discussion on how US foreign policy has been impacted by recent constitutional changes in China and the Russian presidential elections. Thursday, April 19 at 7:00pm.

If you love the ocean, and are interested in learning more about the predators with whom you share the water, join Petter Bauer for an exciting evening of sharks–our myths and preconceived notions about them. Mr. Bauer is an accomplished researcher and diver, having made nearly 180 international dives to study these remarkable creatures. The conversation is geared towards creating an understanding and appreciation of sharks. The workshop is being held on Wednesday, April 25 at 7:00pm.

All ‘Classes without Quizzes’ evenings are $100 per person. Email development@kirby.org if you are interested in attending or would like more information.
