As a private educational institution, St. John's Northwestern Military Academy must rely on the financial support of our alumni, parents and friends to help ensure that our programs and facilities are the best they can be.
The Excalibur dinner and auction fundraiser was held on campus in Farrand Hall Gymnasium on Saturday, April 27, 2013. More than 250 parents, alumni, staff and friends enjoyed a fun-filled evening that included performances by The Pipes and Drums and SJNMA choir; delicious food; over 165 silent and live auction items; and some very special individual cadet entertainment.
The Academy is sincerely grateful to those who sponsored The Excalibur (view list of sponsors), donated items, attended the event, placed bids, and volunteered their time to help us raise $167,000 ($143,000 after costs) for the Annual Fund, which benefits every cadet, teacher, program and department on campus!
Please plan to join us for next year’s Excalibur, which will be held Saturday, April 26, 2014, during Spring Families Weekend.

The Excalibur 2013 FUND-A-NEED
At the end of the live auction, the auctioneer asked guests to raise their bid paddles in support of the Academy’s ongoing effort to repair and modernize Farrand Hall Gymnasium. A total of $44,700 was raised for the 65-year-old building that is both a home to our winter sports teams and a site of countless events. THANK YOU to all who supported this important endeavor. If you were unable to attend The Excalibur, but would like to make a tax-deductible donation to this year’s fund-a-need, contact Cindy Trione at (800) 234-9097, (262) 646-7289 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
