Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Auction Fiesta on March 11th. It was a fun event with many guests walking away with bottles of wine won in the wine toss and photo booth pictures taken with friends old and new! As a community we raised over $63,000, including $31,200 for the Fund-a-Needs. Thank you all for your generosity.
Special thank you to Emily Williamson, who worked tirelessly on the event, and to the auction committee: Amy Perkins, Shana Hammers, and Darla Lovrin for their help in planning a fun event, procuring auction items, and creating event decorations.
Thank you to Makeda Assefa, Erin Moorhead, Amy Perkins, John Miazga, Hector Ramos Diaz , Mel Zippin, Javier Yacarini, Ester Vines, and Shay Sager for helping to set up the event and make the hall look so festive.
A huge thank you to Lauren Haberly for her work on the collaborative art pieces, to Daisy Coby for photographing the Middle School art, and to Eric Lompa and ScanArt for printing all the posters and note cards.
Thank you to Zuly Zuleima for her help with decor, and to Ester Vines for her guidance of the lower school students in creating the papel picado that so beautifully decorated the room.
