Hall of Fame

Don’t miss the Hall of Fame Dinner / Auction on March 5, 2016. To request an invitation or make a donation, call Judy Rethwisch at 314-633-0012.

The Affton Hall of Fame Dinner / Auction honors deserving alumni by inducting them into the Affton School District Hall of Fame. This annual dinner and auction is the Affton Education Foundation’s primary fund-raising activity, providing well-deserved teacher grants. Since 2006, the Foundation has been able to award over 20 grants each year, allowing teachers to enrich the curriculum in the Affton School District. Your generosity by attending the dinner, donating auction items, and supporting the auction continues this robust tradition. Reconnect with old classmates and teachers for a good cause! Last year, almost 300 people attended this hugely successful event.  All money raised by the auction goes directly toward teacher grants.
