Supporting the purchase of SMARTBoards
   and LCD projectors across campus.
       M E S S A G E F R O M T H E P R I N C I PA L


         Welcome to Gentlemen’s Evening 2007!


      Gentlemen’s Evening was started with a dual purpose to bring
        the gentlemen of the Branksome Hall community together in
    a fun and social setting, and to raise important funds for the benefit
    of our students. Thanks to your support and generosity this evening,
        we will open the next school year with new SMARTBoards
          and LCD projectors for use in classrooms and common
     areas across campus. This technology will enhance the learning
            experience of our students and optimize the efforts
      of our teachers. All of our students and teachers on both sides
                of campus will benefit from this equipment.
         On behalf of our students, I extend a heartfelt thank you
                     for enabling us to fulfill this need.

    A dedicated group of current fathers and past fathers has devoted
       countless hours to organizing tonight’s auctions and activities.
          My sincere appreciation is extended to the Gentlemen’s
          Evening Committee, and particularly to your co-chairs,
                  Phil Gilbert and D.J. Wiley, for the time,
     effort and dedication that they have put into this evening’s event.

        Thank you to all attendees and to our many supporters for
      your participation in tonight’s activities and for your commitment
                  to Branksome Hall. Enjoy your evening!




                              Karen Murton




1                                                            GENTLEMEN’S EVENING 2007
            WELCOME FROM THE CO-CHAIRS


                                    Gentlemen,


                              On behalf of our committee,
                  we welcome you to the 2007 Gentlemen’s Evening.

      This evening you will be treated to a culinary extravaganza complemented
        by perfectly matched wines. You will be entertained by Hal Hannaford
              as he auctions off some very unique and exiting packages.
          And that is only half of the evening’s entertainment. From our oyster
          shuckers to the casino portion of the evening, we are confident that
                       you will enjoy Gentlemen’s Evening 2007.

             Tonight we have the opportunity to do something very special.
     The proceeds from this evening’s event will be used to purchase state-of-the-art
            multimedia equipment for Branksome classrooms that will enrich
          the students’ learning experiences. Branksome students push beyond
              the expected and deliver on the extraordinary everyday —
        the tools that we give them tonight will play an important role in helping
             them achieve their goals and reach new levels of excellence.

               We have been very fortunate to benefit from the passion,
             creativity and perseverance of this year’s committee members.
             We applaud their hard work and extend our sincere thanks to
                   the committee for their commitment to the school.

                  A very special thank you also goes out to our many
                            contributors to tonight’s auctions.

         The success of this evening now rests in your hands and to that end,
               we ask you to please take the time to review our auction
      catalogue in detail. There are fine wines, many wonderful travel excursions,
              golf packages galore and several experiences of a lifetime
            that can all be yours. Please remember, when you are bidding
                  throughout the evening, that Branksome students are
                            the beneficiaries of our support.

        Let’s make the 2007 Gentlemen’s Evening the best ever and show how
            much we care about our daughters’ education and experience.




                              Phil Gilbert and D.J. Wiley
