Purchase your ticket today!

We have quite an evening planned involving students from the Virginia Beach Schools Culinary Arts Program serving their exquisite hors d’oeuvres and desserts, live entertainment from the musical Annie, silent and live auctions, and locally sourced adult beverages.

Proceeds from our annual fundraiser are always used to directly support student needs at Tidewater’s first and most successful public charter school. This year, the money raised will be used to pay for 220 International Baccalaureate and Career Certification Assessments which can amount to $720 per student, provide scholarships to post-secondary experiences, enhanced learning experiences, and opportunities to develop workforce readiness skills.

Funds will also be used for the 2023 Summer Bridge and Support Program for rising ninth graders entering GRC. The program, co-hosted with two leading organizations in our region, Sentara Healthcare and Centura College, is designed to:

  • Introduce students new to Green Run Collegiate to the rigors of the International Baccalaureate program.
  • Begin their four-year academic plan by introducing them to careers that are in high need within our community, such as alternative energy, hospitality, and medical careers.
  • Support them academically and emotionally to assure their personal and academic success.
Your attendance will help provide invaluable support to the students of the only public high school in all the Hampton Roads cities which has a 100 percent graduation rate each year of operation, even while having no barriers to admission and full school implementation of the IB curriculum.

Green Run Collegiate is a school like no other!

We are pleased to welcome back Katie Collett, morning anchor of WAVY TV 10, as our emcee for the event. Katie’s energy and passion for public education and young people is a wonderful addition to what will truly be an already amazing event.
Congratulations to the recipient of the 2023-2024 GRC Hero Award, William J. “Bill” Brunke. Mr. Brunke is the managing member of Brunke & Company, LLC., a public accounting firm located in Virginia Beach. A former Virginia Beach City Public Schools School Board Member, Mr. Brunke was a founding member and Chairman of the Green Run Collegiate Governing Board when it was first founded in 2013. He has continued to contribute his time to the school by participating in the school’s Senior Business Internship Program.
