Special Events
The spring benefit: First Steps...Lasting Impressions held on April 30, 2013 was a night to remember for over 480 parents, grandparents and friends. At this gala event and auction held at espace, RSS honored outgoing head of school, Paul Druzinsky, for all the first steps he has encouraged us to take these past seven years. And we joined together for a bittersweet moment when we named the Digital Arts Program in memory of Jonathan Cuba, and alumni shared the lasting impressions that he made on RSS.

It was a record breaking night for RSS on many fronts:
 - More than 480 parents, grandparents and friends attended, 40% more than the 2011 benefit
 - We had a 15% increase in the number of sponsorships, raising a total of $294,800
 - We sold 240 items in the silent auction, raising $120,000
 - We raised $105,000 from the live auction, almost 20% more than in 2011
  - Our community generously gave $37,000 to support the Jonathan Cuba Digital Arts Program, a $20,000 increase over the 2011 previous paddle call


Thank you to the whole community for helping us raise over $700,000 to start a renovation fund for Rodeph Sholom School!
