Please Join Us!
We are very excited to be moving forward with plans for Spring Families Weekend, which include an in-person Excalibur this year. One of the Academies’ most exciting fundraising events of the year, The Excalibur dinner and auction raises money to support the Annual Fund that benefits every cadet, student, teacher, program, and department on campus.


This year’s FUND-A-NEED event during Excalibur is for The Rick Leone Challenge Match Campaign, which supports the Military Academy at St. John’s Northwestern! In honor and memory of his son, Rick Leone S’75, Mr. John Leone has agreed to match every donation to St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy, dollar-for-dollar, up to $1 million!


Auction Items Needed
Please consider donating an item for the auction. Unique items do very well (things that cannot be purchased in a store). Other desired items include food baskets, wine, sports memorabilia, electronics, vacation homes/trips, spa services, jewelry, etc. Contact Cindy Trione at (262) 646-7289 or to discuss your item.


Tickets and Sponsorship Packages
Tickets are $90 per person until April 19 ($105 thereafter). Reserved seating for 12 (including dinner for 12) is available for sponsors of The Excalibur at the levels of $10,000; $5,000 and $1,884.

The Excalibur cannot be a success without special donors to help underwrite the event. Reserved seating AND parking is available for our sponsors of The Excalibur, so please consider reserving two tables of six (includes 12 dinners). All Excalibur sponsors qualify for membership in the Academies’ Leaders Circle and will receive special recognition in The Excalibur catalog, on the Academies and The Excalibur websites, and during the event.
