Our fun-filled celebration was held on February 28! A sold-out crowd of more than 350 attendees joined us for an evening of celebrating our successes and seeing our upcoming strategies and plans. What a great way to support our schools!
A big thank you to our sponsors!
We shared a touching video of Hopkins students sharing their current and future wishes during the evening. Check out the Venture Photography Video here.

Your Entertaining Host!
Our emcee for the evening was Allison Kaplan, Hopkins parent and senior editor of Shopping + Style for Mpls St Paul Magazine.
Royal Bash 2015 featured live music by The R Factor (formerly Rupert’s Orchestra). We enjoyed the remarkable voices of six singers and an eight piece band which includes a three piece horn section, a four piece rhythm section and one violin. Lots of dancing!
We dressed up a bit more this year in honor of our 20th birthday. Read more.
Let the Bidding Begin!
Attendees could bid on a great variety of silent auction items available while you enjoy cocktails, games, and mingling before dinner. After dinner, we had a live auction with exciting items like a Mercedes Roadster lease, a Scottsdale trip, an Outward Bound excursion, special graduation tickets for parents of HHS seniors, and more.
