About the Event

This annual community celebration and fundraising event held each spring, features both a silent and live auction, seated dinner and stunning ambience. Your generous support of this event helps provide the funding needed to maintain the quality education and community for which The Stanley Clark School is known.

The goals for this year's event are to:

  • Encourage our Clark community to enjoy a fun-filled evening with friends as we celebrate The Stanley Clark School.
  • Support the exemplary education value The Stanley Clark School continues to deliver.
  • Recognize and thank those who have contributed time, treasure and talent to make Kaleidoscope a success!


Plans are underway for The Stanley Clark School’s 42nd Kaleidoscope Dinner and Auction. Scheduled for Friday, April 17, 2020 at the Armory in South Bend. This not-to-be missed event is the school’s largest community gathering and fundraising event. It is our hope that you will join us in our efforts to raise essential funds for our children, and in return your business will receive exclusive visibility within our school community. 

Stanley Clark is an independent, co-educational school deeply rooted in the Michiana community for over 60 years. We provide local students with a unique academic program, first-rate faculty, character enriching programs, and unparalleled opportunities in athletics and the fine and performing arts.  All proceeds from our Kaleidoscope auction provide operational support and also help to fund financial aid for qualified students. 

Please consider becoming a corporate or individual event partner.  A contribution to our event will directly benefit your business by providing: 

  • maximum visibility among parents, trustees, faculty, staff, and friends of the school
  • direct and ongoing advertising to our constituents in the month preceding the event 
  • publicity on our auction webpage, electronic bidding devices, and printed auction catalog

Please check back for sponsorship opportunities. 

RSVP to Attend

Please watch for an invitation in early 2020! RSVP's will open closer to the event date.

Dress for the event is cocktail attire. Ladies typically wear their favorite cocktail dress or pant suit, while gentlemen typically wear a suit, either with or without a tie.


Bid high and bid often! Kaleidoscope features both a live and silent auction.

The live auction begins during dinner service on the night of the event. We have some amazing auction items that are sure to draw some friendly bidding competitions. Raise your bidder paddle high and often!

The silent auction begins a week prior to Kaleidoscope through OneCause and closes at 8:30 p.m. the night of the event. Many silent auction items will be on display at the venue during Kaleidoscope, so be sure to arrive early and take a look around.

The silent auction also features handcrafted class art projects. Don't miss the opportunity to take home these one-of-a-kind art pieces, that will forever capture in time the precious memories of your child and their classmates.

The Venue

The Armory, located at 727 S. Eddy Street, South Bend, provides the perfect backdrop for this celebratory event! This beautiful, newly-renovated river-front venue is located in the market district of downtown South Bend. What was originally built for the state armory guard (hence its current name) and later became the Newman Recreation Center, only recently re-opened as a multi-purpose event site.

Thank you to our 2019 Kaleidoscope Sponsors!
