The 8th Grade D.C. Trip Fundraising Committee has been hard at work since its inception in early October. We are a group of parents hailing from all three middle schools working together to raise funds to ensure every 8th-grade student has the opportunity to travel to D.C. in the spring.



We have several fundraising events planned for the next few months.

Can’t attend? Consider making a donation to the 8th Grade DC Trip Fund via our partners at the Greenwich Alliance. Click here and indicate "DC Trip" under "Allocation.”  


Dancing for DC 


The Greenwich Alliance for Education and the 8th Grade DC Trip Fundraising Committee invite you to Dancing for DC, an event to benefit the 8th Grade Washington DC Trip Fund.  Please join us Wednesday, March 8 from 6-9pm at the Old Greenwich Social Club for dancing and live music by local band The Tide.  Cash bar and food available for purchase. Ticket sales directly fund our effort for this year and beyond; the Old Greenwich Social Club will also donate 10% of all food and beverage sales that evening.
