Our annual benefit dinner is truly an evening like none other at Keswick. Hosted at the historic Coliseum in scenic downtown St. Petersburg, our benefit dinner is more than just a fundraiser; its a grand showcase of all things Keswick. Attendees enjoy great music from our high school band and concert choir, stirring testimonies, praise and worship, a message from our superintendent, and of course… great food! In the end, folks are greatly encouraged through this event, and Keswick is blessed by the gifts given that night.
The event theme, “So Will I” is also our 2018-19 school theme and encapsulates the truth that all creation “sings praises to You” Psalm 66:4. If this is true, then we can do no less. We live to glorify our creator!
This years dinner will have a homecoming feel to it. As a unique ministry in our community for 65 years, we want to bring attention to the special impact Keswick has had through the decades. We will hear testimonies from graduates across the years, and our superintendent, Nick Stratis, will highlight certain folks who impacted his life personally.
The one and only Dick Crippen will be our special host for the night. Dick has had an amazing career in the Tampa Bay TV news industry spanning almost four decades and is currently senior advisor for the Tampa Bay Rays. He is also the proud parent of a KCS alumnus.
In addition to the evening benefit dinner, we will also be having a Homecoming breakfast, that morning, in the Keswick gymnasium. This event is for alumni, alumni parents, and past staff and faculty only. It will be a great opportunity to reconnect with friends and past teachers. In addition, we will be conducting tours after the breakfast for anyone that would like to see all the exciting developments that have taken place on our campus.
Some notable past staff and faculty members will be a part of the breakfast and evening dinner. Paul Shedd, Robert Kolb, and Eleanor Baumner will be in attendance along with many others. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with these special folks who have impacted the lives of so many for Christ.
Make plans today to be a part of this unforgettable day.
