Save The Date For Illumination 2021

Save The Date For Illumination 2021

Save the Date for our virtual Illumination 2021 ~ Stars and Stripes: Honoring Assets’ Frontline Heroes, Assets’ Teachers and former AOP Teachers on Saturday, April 17.

We know from the success of this past year's virtual Illumination auction that this is an event many look forward to every year. This important fundraiser provides much-needed funds for tuition assistance and the school's greatest needs. Your support helps to continue our mission of transforming lives and providing an education to students for whom Assets School is a necessity, not a luxury.

The live auction program on Saturday, April 17 will include professional auctioneer Eric Schiff from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. In addition to the virtual online auction, we have sponsorship opportunities supporting popular local restaurants - check out our Illumination page for more details!

If you would like to discuss our sponsorship opportunities or would like to donate an item or experience, please contact Linda Jameson Myers at (808) 440-3605 or by email at
