Since Connections (previously Lab’s annual gala fundraiser) takes place every other year, we still wanted a way for the adults to get together to have fun and celebrate the Lab community.
The inaugural Dewey Dance was Saturday, March 4, 2017. Parents, alumni, faculty, and staff headed to Kovler Gymnasium for a laid-back 80s-style, high-fun dance party with themed cocktails, food stations, games, and Lab student performances.
The event exceeded fundraising goals, raising more than $188,000. Net proceeds of the Dewey Dance funded a new minibus and play equipment for Lab Logs. Lab's fleet of minibuses allow teams, athletic and scholastic, as well as clubs and classes to venture to events, competitions, and conferences near and far. With the growth of the Schools, an additional bus supports these co-curricular activities so essential to the Lab experience. And now that construction equipment is gone from Kenwood Mall, it's time to build a new Lab Logs!
Dewey Dance will return to the historic campus in 2019. Stay tuned.
