Armstrong’s Community Fundraiser and Benefit Auction is Armstrong’s premier fundraising event attended by close to 1,000 guests. Armstrong is very much reliant on fundraising and donations to support our school's operating budget not covered by tuition. Funds raised will directly support Armstrong’s mission to unlock the unique potential of students with dyslexia and related learning differences, changing the trajectory of their lives.
