The Bishop’s School’s upcoming spring benefit, Disco Knights Auction 2012, was the topic of an evening of food and wine at the La Jolla home of Troy and Amanda Latimer on Jan. 27. Supporters came with donations of premium wine (rated 95+ points or higher) to be sold at the April 21 auction event, which annually nets about $1 million in support of the Bishop’s Student Need-Based Financial Aid and Faculty Professional Growth programs. Twenty-one percent of the current student body is receiving close to $3 million through the financial aid program.
