What is the Spring Benefit?

Our annual Spring Benefit is a community-building event that brings together PBS parents, faculty, and staff. With the support of a dedicated team of volunteers, we celebrate our culture of giving and invest in specific strategic priorities for PBS. Funds raised through the Spring Benefit are directed toward our school's two biggest priorities, our students and our faculty:

  • Each dollar given toward Fund-A-Student or pledged during the evening paddle-raise will help fund next year’s financial aid budget, allowing us to make the full cost of attending PBS affordable for a wide array of families and helping to build the inclusive community we all treasure.
  • All other net proceeds from the Benefit go toward next year's faculty salaries, benefits, and professional development, helping PBS to offer competitive compensation packages and to attract, retain, and develop exceptional educators.


The Spring Benefit is an adults-only evening with cocktails, dinner, an auction, raffles, and dancing. Proceeds support faculty excellence and the school’s tuition assistance program. Exciting details for the event are announced each January.


This year’s Spring Benefit will be held Saturday, April 25, 2020, at Sharon Heights Golf and Country Club. Starting in the fall, parents will be asked for their support as volunteers, party hosts, item donors, and underwriters.


The Spring Benefit is a partnership between the Advancement Office and dedicated parent volunteers. This annual fundraising event draws support from PBS families, local businesses, and beyond. This year’s Spring Benefit Co-Chairs are Julia Anderson, Melanie Ladhabhoy, Emily Lopez, and Sarah Speakman.

Goals for 2019–2020

  • Come together as a community for a fun evening in celebration and support of the wonderful generosity of PBS families.
  • Raise $300,000 for tuition assistance, program development, and professional development.
