Hello Portledge Community,

We are thrilled to be chairing the 2022 Portledge Gala honoring the Portledge Faculty and celebrating Susan Edwards-Bourdrez and Harry Grzelewski. With a combined total of 50 plus years dedicated to Portledge School, we are eager to toast Susan and Harry. This year’s Gala will be held on Thursday, May 12, at the Crescent Beach Club in Bayville. We are looking forward to an evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, live music, auction items and so much more. It has been quite a few years, three years to be exact, that we have held the Gala in person. We hope that you will join us for this annual tradition to connect with old friends, get acquainted with new ones, and support Portledge that has and always will be a part of our lives. We have chosen to send our children to Portledge School for so many reasons yet the faculty and our community remain at the heart of it. 
We all love a great party; however, there is plenty of work that needs to be done. There are so many ways to get involved; item donations, sponsorships, event underwriting, journal ads, and more. We would love to have you join our efforts. We are excited to connect with you and join forces to make this an amazing comeback celebration. Thank you in advance for your kindness, generosity, and support to reach our goals for Portledge School. We can’t wait to see you at the beach!
