Banyan Ball

The Banyan Ball is the signature black-tie fundraising event for The Out-of-Door Academy. Held annually on the second Saturday in March, the event boasts a who’s who crowd united in celebration of the mission and vision of Out-of-Door. 
The Out-of-Door community came out in its finest on Saturday, March 9, 2019 for the annual Banyan Ball—an elegant evening of festivity and fundraising. The “World Traveler” themed event transported VIP attendees through the beautiful European countryside while enjoying decadent hors d'oeuvres, fabulous cocktails, and the melodic serenade of a live violin. The main event, held in a breathtaking ballroom lavishly decorated with Eiffel Towers, Turkish lamps, and regional floral arrangements was an awe-inspiring backdrop for the evening's fine dining, live auction, and paddle raise. Thank you to everyone who supported this fabulous event that supports our students, faculty, and the programs that make Out-of-Door an OUTstanding place to learn.
Mark your Calendar for next year's Banyan Ball March 14, 2020, when we'll celebrate our 95th year.
