(Long Island, N.Y.) Kicking off the summer season in the Hamptons, Live @Club Starlight is Ross School’s largest fundraising gala. This year’s fundraising event included supporters interacting with celebrities during the red carpet arrivals, a cocktail reception featuring local cuisine and a silent auction.
Guests enjoyed a lavish dinner, an exhilarating performance by Cyndi Lauper, dancing, and a live auction. Club Starlight has raised over $700,000 for Ross School and the Steven J. Ross Scholarship Fund.
This year the event was chaired by Actress/Model and now Broadway Star Christie Brinkley.
The Ross School’s mission is to alter the way education meets the future. The Ross School fosters interdisciplinary, integrated thinking and innovative leadership. Its mission is to continue to engage fully in the global community and to facilitate lifelong learning.
The school is located in East Hampton and Bridgehampton, New York and established in 1991 by Courtney and Steven J. Ross. The couple recognized that preparing students to meet the challenges of the 21st century requires innovative models to transform education. Aided by the research of many educational pioneers and leading thinkers, they set out to expand upon some of the best practices in K-12 education, combining them with the notion that leadership in an increasingly connected and rapidly changing world demands cultivating a global perspective and embracing technology. The resulting model offers a complete and uniquely individual educational experience to students from per-nursery through grade twelve.
Within a curriculum based in world cultural history, classroom activities are designed and featured to integrate the arts, writing, literature, computer technology and health. Youngsters are instructed that each domain is a valid tool for exploring topics, addressing real-life situations, solving problems, making intelligent decisions and expressing findings. The connections across disciplines are highlighted both as reinforcement of the ideas presented and as a reflection of the nature of the world.
Ross students are encouraged to dream and imagine, to remember the past in order to understand the present and to embrace the future.
The Ross School ensures that youngsters from all economic backgrounds benefit from a world-class Ross education.
