On behalf of the Parents Association, the Gala Chair, and the entire Parker Community, thank you!
Because of the amazing support from all of you, the Parents Association's 37th gala, Country Palooza, raised $1.2 million* for student financial assistance and faculty professional development. The Linda Vista Campus was transformed into a rockin' evening of country music, food, and fun by Gala Chair Erik Keskinen and the dedicated Gala committee. Wonderful things happen when we come together in a spirit of giving. Thank you for your support.
* Total amount raised includes Day of Giving.
