Frequently Asked Questions About Isaac Newton Christian Academy’s RISING STARS 2017 Fundraising Banquet

What is the purpose of the banquet? Our Annual Banquet is a celebration of Christian Education and also an opportunity to support the ongoing work of our RISING STARS at the Academy.

When is this year’s banquet? The banquet is on Tuesday, March 28. Check-in is from 6-6:30, followed by dinner and a program. It will be over no later than 9:00!

Who is the speaker? The program will be Emcee’d by 101.9’s morning show host Adam Hannan and the speaker is David A. R. White. David is an accomplished actor and the founder of Pure Flix Entertainment.

Who attends the banquet? Oh, how about 500 of the Academy’s closest friends! Attending are many of our current and alumni parents, grandparents, donors, church, ministry and community leaders, and people who love the school and are interested in hearing a great speaker, too!

What does it cost to attend? There is no charge to attend, however, this is a fundraiser and there will be an opportunity to give financially during the evening. Much of the banquet will be underwritten by individual and business sponsors who help cover the cost of the meal, speaker, and other expenses associated with the evening. Your gift is tax-deductible and will go to our Annual Fund, which supports the costs associated with carrying out our mission of “Christlike Character Development and Academic Excellence.” Tuition alone does not cover what it takes to educate a student at Isaac Newton, so this event is very important! We encourage you to show your support for Christian education by giving generously!

What if I want to be a sponsor? It’s easy to become a sponsor! There are different levels of sponsorship available. Individual sponsorships start at $350 and cover the meal for 10 people…you, your spouse or guest, and eight others. Higher sponsorships include a table for 10 and also help to underwrite the event. Business sponsorships start at $500 and have some great incentives and opportunities for promoting your business.

Is there parking available? You can park on the street, or in the parking garage connected to the DoubleTree. If you would like a parking voucher we will have them available at check-in.
Anything else I should know? Many people come straight from work, so business casual is fine for attire. Also, the dinner will feature various stations so there is sure to be something tasty for everyone! And finally:
