The glitz and glamour of the 1920s was on full dlsplay last night as we all celebrated Key School at the Speakeasy Soiree. Flapper dresses, top hats and suspenders, and headbands galore adorned teachers, parents, and the administration as we danced the night away. Thanks so much to everyone who attended, you helped create a very special night showcasing what makes Key School so great.
A special thank you goes out to Stacie Seline and Ginger Helfrich for orchestrating the most successful auction Key has ever had. Thank you to all those who attended and bid on items. A huge thanks goes out to all our volunteers, especially Debbie and Kevin Nigri and Lindsay Suntag for the vision to transform the cafeteria and gym to the 1920s. Many thanks also goes to Dan Schwager, Eva and Andrew Kennedy, Beth Donahue, Mylinda Roger, Emily Jacobs, and Kelsey Brothers for all their hard wok. Darcy Langdon and Howard Traul were perfect as our emcee and auctioneer duo.
The money we raised from ticket sales, the silent auction, and live auction will be used for this school years budgeted expenses. The Fund the Future monies we raised last night will go toward the PTO budget for next year. We raised a record $140,000 for Fund the Future! We will be approving the budget for next school year at the last General PTO meeting. Details coming.
