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 will be announced in a timely manner. Last year’s FUND-A-NEED for The Rick Leone Challenge Match Campaign supported the Military Academy at St. John’s Northwestern and was a huge success! In honor and memory of his son, Rick Leone S’75, Mr. John Leone graciously matched every donation to St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy, dollar-for-dollar, up to $1.5 million! Thank you to everyone who helped us reach the $3 million goal!!


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 1 ($105 thereafter). Reserved seating 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 a table of 10 (includes 10 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.
