Week of May 14th, 2012

Founders' Ball - It was a BALL!

As the Super Moon came up over the Field House and the Cigar Lounge got rolling on the outside, on the inside there were chandeliers, candelabras and well-dressed dames and gents enjoying fine wine, cuisine and ballroom dancing.  And yes!  A Mirror-Ball Trophy was involved!

Congratulations to Susan Davey and her Founder's Ball Committee for what is shaping up to be one of our most successful galas yet!  Initial numbers have us well-over $600,000!  An incredible number to match an incredible event!

Thank you to the committee, to the generous donors and to all the fun people who attended and to those who raised their paddles!  Thanks also to Kevin Yaley and his wonderful staff for their unwavering support. Especially to Hue Lam from Technology (she lives, eats and breathes this stuff!) and to the Communications Department - Cathy Morrison, David Wahlstrom and Laura Coburn.  These are the unsung heroes behind the scenes.

special thank you goes to Upper School Math and Science teacher, Brodie Kaster.  Brodie has many talents, one of which is being a professional ballroom dancer and instructor.  Brodie generously donated his own time and talent to choreograph our Spotlight Dancers: Annie Voight, Dan Lang, Jan Rogers and, our Founders' Ball Champion, Erik Keskinen.  Thanks to all of them for providing the elegant (and profitable) entertainment.

The Gala is truly a collaborative effort and consequently, the PA is able to raise serious money for tuition assistance and professional development.  This effort helps to keep Parker the wonderful school that it is!
