Annual Golf Outing
Celebrating the life of Mark Keays, a great parent and friend of the school, the annual Golf Outing raises funds for our athletic department.
Every fall, this event is one of our most successful “friend-raisers!” Beginning in the morning with a Doane Alumni soccer game followed by a Varsity Girls and Boys Soccer game against one of our league rivals, the event culminates in our annual Pumpkin Chunkin’ with our Engineering Club members and other teams seeing who can launch a pumpkin the farthest! All of this is combined with music and a tailgating cook-off with great food in a variety of categories - meats, comfort foods, soups/chili and desert!
Ride Onward is Doane Academy’s Annual Bike Ride to support our school’s scholarship program. Over the past seven years, Ride Onward has raised over $200,000 to help students attend Doane Academy regardless of their financial circumstances.
This is one of Doane Academy’s oldest traditions. Stemming from our boarding school days, the performance was created by students who were unable to travel home over the holidays. The Mystery is a play, celebrating Jesus’s birth in Bethlehem.
Taste of the Best
Each spring, Doane’s dining hall becomes the host for up to 30 local restaurants who bring some of their best dishes for our guests to sample. One of our top three fundraisers each year, Taste of the Best is a delightful event to meet other Doane families and supporters.
Each year, Doane Academy takes time to celebrate our Founder, George Washington Doane, during the first weekend in May.
