2018 Alumni Auction Donations

January 11, 2018 / Catherine Nicholas / Blog

Thanks to all the alumni who have contributed items to the 2018 Night of the Dragon auction!  The auction raises money for the five booster groups, the PTSA, and the Foundation. Governor’s School alumni have stepped up this year and donated several items to be auctioned off.  Here’s what we’ve got so far:

  • Shephali Agrawal (’96) is offering a private 1.5 hour meditation session for a winning bidder.  Shephali is an advanced meditation instructor for the Art of Living Foundation and teaches workshops all over the US.
  • Xiaoqi Li (’14) donated a portrait session and/or a wedding collection from her photography company, Xiaoqi Li Photography.
  • Greg Butler (’00) donated a weekend stay at his 3 bd/4 ba cottage in Charlottesville.  Situated just off JPA, the cottage is just a three minute walk from The Lawn and a ten minute walk from the stadium.
  • Lucy Dacus (’13) is donating a signed copy of her album, NO BURDEN, which has been praised by The New York Times, NPR, and SPIN, among many others.  Rolling Stone ranked her song “I Don’t Wanna Be Funny Anymore” #17 on their best 50 songs of 2016 list.
  • Jamey Stegmaier (’99) is donating signed copies of his critically-acclaimed hit board games from Stonemaier Games.
