Lighting the Way Fundraiser

Our annual spring fundraiser is a can't-miss event celebrating the warmth and generosity of the DVFriends community! Featuring cocktails, dinner, silent auction, and a live appeal for DVFriends, along with engaging speakers who will inspire and motivate you - all at a beautiful location on the Main Line or in the city. We have opportunities for sponsors and advertisers, auction item donors, and of course - guests! 
Important Update #1: In the interests of keeping all members of our community safe and healthy, we are cancelling this year's Lighting the Way event, which was scheduled for Friday, May 1 at the Warwick Hotel Rittenhouse Square. As DV’s only fundraising event of the year, Lighting the Way provides critical support to our school, and the need for that support remains, now more than ever.

In light of the seriousness of the COVID-19 global pandemic, all proceeds raised from our Lighting the Way fundraising effort will be redirected to tuition assistance, so we have a larger pool of resources available for DV families who may have experienced job or income loss as a result of the crisis. All ticket purchases, sponsorships and advertisements will be treated as donations, and are 100% tax deductible.
Important Update #2: We've re-imagined our event as a celebration of our community's Quaker values. Our new campaign is called "SPICES of Life: a recipe for our future leaders." This giving opportunity runs for six days - one for every Quaker testimony - from May 17 to May 22. We'll share inspiring content and ways to engage - and contribute - every day. Finally, please join us for the ending event on Friday, May 22 from 7-7:45 pm. RSVP to to receive a Zoom link to attend.
