We are extraordinarily grateful to everyone who contributed to making last Saturday’s virtual Block Party such a phenomenal success. Not surprisingly, our sponsors, underwriters and ticket holders declined refunds and gifted those monies in support of the school. A special thank you to our presenting sponsors Joe and Jo Ann White & Family, and to our premier sponsors Oscor, Inc. and Pinch A Penny. Check out the sponsor board below. And, to Ruth Eckerd Hall for graciously voiding our contract at no expense.
Check out our Marauder Fest 2020 Block Party Program Book and be sure to support our sponsors, underwriters, advertisers and auction donors.
More than 150 current and past parents, alumni, faculty, and friends joined us on Facebook Live Saturday evening for the virtual auction and raffle draw. Despite cancelling our contract for us when we had to cancel Marauder Fest, our auctioneer, Geoff Cowan (Alpert Enterprises), generously volunteered his time to join Advancement Coordinator Sarah Prunoske on camera for the auction broadcast. This dynamic duo entertained our audience while raising much needed funds for tuition assistance. We were sad about cancelling the Marauder Fest event but enjoyed visiting with everyone who stopped by Sunday to pick up their auction items—maintaining a distance of six feet, of course.
Many thanks to Stephanie Noyes and Cathy Hohs who volunteered these last two weeks prepping our items for the online auction, and to our Marauder Fest Block Party planning committee who worked all year on this event.
