Annual Gala

Marburn Academy’s 37th Annual Gala: SHINE
Saturday, April 13, 2019, 6 PM at L Brands Headquarters

Each and every day Marburn Academy students overcome learning differences.
Simply put, they SHINE. 


This year we raised a record $331,736 in need-based financial aid and program enhancements, increased awareness for Marburn and its programs and celebrated the many students in our program who, despite learning differences, continue to shine.
