Each year, Edison High School hosts the Brilliance Benefit, an enchanting and inspiring evening of friendship, food and fundraising. The Brilliance Benefit is one of the two annual events where we appeal directly to you, our community champions, for gifts to support our tuition assistance fund. Attendees enjoy dinner, an auction and, for the price of a raffle ticket, a chance to win a fabulous vacation. We invite you to partner with us to ensure that all of our students reach their full potential!
On Saturday, March 7, we were thrilled to have 300 guests join us and show their commitment to our school. It was inspirational to hear from our student speaker Riley Wass ’21 as he shared his experience at Edison. With good humor, Riley discussed the challenges he has faced with dyslexia and how the outstanding support of Edison's dedicated teachers has made a huge difference.
Together we raised more than $325,000! A significant portion of the revenue will go directly to student financial aid. The remaining proceeds will be used for technology and curriculum enhancements, and professional development for our teachers.

As part of our Brilliance Benefit every year, we offer the wonderful opportunity to win an all-expenses-paid vacation. The winner of the raffle enjoys 6 nights at Villa Royale in Palm Springs, in a 2 bedroom suite*, $1,000 to use for airfare, golf, dining, horseback riding or other adventure in the beautiful Coachella Valley!
Congratulations to this year's winner, Vicki Hall!
