Annual Benefit  

Every year the Be a Maverick Benefit event brings the Nueva community together, providing both a space to celebrate what it means to “be a Maverick” and an opportunity to support Nueva’s financial awards program. This event is one of the highlights of the Nueva calendar, and truly demonstrates our community’s amazing commitment to philanthropy, opportunity and belonging!

Even a global pandemic couldn't keep the Nueva community from a great party! When COVID-19 forced us to cancel the April 4 benefit auction just a few weeks before it was scheduled to take place, our auction committee rallied and hosted Nueva’s first-ever virtual benefit auction, rechristened California Streamin’.

Auction Inspires Community-Building and Donations of All Shapes and Sizes

Perhaps when you hear the word “auction" you think of a hushed room full of serious people holding paddles, bidding on mysterious artifacts. In true Nueva fashion, it should come to no surprise that the Annual Benefit Auction has transformed that model into an fun, inclusive, and community-driven fundraising event.

What makes a community? How is our school made better by every student, parent, and staff member here? In this video, originally shared at our annual auction, we reflect on the fabric of our community and the ways we all make each other stronger!
