More than 200 people attended the Golden Apple Gala, an evening of philanthropy and fun for the Rossman School community. Held March 10 at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis, the biennial event featured silent and live auctions, an exquisite dinner and dancing.

The dazzling array of auction items up for grabs — including sensational jewelry, rare sports memorabilia, magnificent vacations, Rossman Rarities and much more — helped the Rossman School Parents’ Club raise more than $170,000 for the children of Rossman School. A group of dedicated parents chaired the event: Vimal Arnold, Lauren Beigle, Laura Cozad, Courtney Engler, Julie Ernst, Courtney Goodman, Kendra Karimi, Kelly Metcalf, Alison Nadaud, Jennifer Nelson, Michelle Ott, Vasavi Rao, Alana Rye, and Tracey Temanson.

Funds raised at the Gala will support Rossman’s endowment, teacher wishlists and a new sport court featuring basketball and four square.


Rossman School, nestled on a 20-acre campus in Creve Coeur, is an independent preparatory school for students in Junior Kindergarten (four years old) through Grade 6. The school’s mission is to provide a strong, well-balanced education in a nurturing school community committed to excellence. Dedicated to developing personal, nurturing relationships with each child, Rossman’s experienced educators provide a solid foundation in academics, athletics and arts while emphasizing strong character development and leadership skills.​ Request a free Rossman School brochure here
