3/16/16 Thank you to everyone who attended and/or participated in Lab Connections 2016. Salon Lab tickets and certain auction items are still available to purchase on the mobile bidding site through the end of the month.
In January 1896, a young University of Chicago professor of philosophy opened a new elementary school on 57th Street. In three rooms with a large backyard, John Dewey and 16 students gathered to revolutionize the way that teachers taught young children. Some 120 years later, Connections will celebrate this auspicious occasion by honoring the distinctive qualities that have made Lab one of the leading independent schools in the country.
Proceeds from Connections 2016 will be directed to student financial aid to enable exceptional students the opportunity to experience the life transforming effects of a Lab education.
Guests at this year's Connections will have the opportunity to:
Celebrate with more than 700 fellow parents, Lab alumni and faculty and staff.
Experience a signature cocktail.
Participate in the Silent Auction & Raffle .
Enjoy student performances.
Bid/Acquire one of a kind auction items and experience packages.
