Princeton, NJ – Over 230 alumni, parents, and friends of The Hun School attended a Gala on the evening of December 8th to honor members of the Red and Black Society and to celebrate the Grand Opening of the Wilf Family Global Commons. Alumni and parents from nine countries and thirteen states funded the $9 million, 30,000 square foot facility, which includes a spacious campus center, two high-tech classrooms, school store, snack bar, four faculty apartments, and dormitory space for fifty-six boarding students.

Assistant Headmaster for Advancement Andrew Hamlin remarked, "This is a wonderful moment for the School, and it speaks volumes about the Hun community that so many of our alumni and past parents from around the world would so generously support the construction of this remarkable building and our efforts to provide outstanding educational opportunities for current and future Hun students." He also thanked members of the Red and Black Society, who supported last year's record-setting $863,000 Hun Fund with gifts of $1,914 or more, and welcomed many young alumni Red and Black members who joined this year at new lower entry levels, based upon their year of graduation.

In their remarks, Board Chairman Hugh Hurley and Headmaster Jonathan Brougham praised all those whose leadership and generosity supports and strengthens the educational opportunities available to Hun School students. Mr. Brougham acknowledged the special generosity of Mehrzad "Manny" Ferdows '88 and Berzhad "Danny" Ferdows '87, Betsy and Jeffrey Sands, Ginger and Kevin Tylus '73, as well as Trustee Scott Landis '92 and Trustee Emeritus Alan Landis '61. Mr. Brougham also thanked and presented a gift to Edward and Trustee Lynn Breen, whose remarkable support funded the Breen Family Campus Center, the new campus gathering place in the Global Commons.

To conclude the evening, Mr. Brougham asked those gathered to join him in thanking Trustee Orin Wilf '92, his father Leonard Wilf, and the Wilf Family Foundation for their generous benefaction in support of the Global Commons. "The Wilf Family has supported the School for many years, and in so many important ways," said Mr. Brougham. "Now, with this generous gift, their enduring commitment to education and to The Hun School will be recognized and remembered for generations."
