The Valentine’s gala – a great night of fundraising with friends

1798867_10203339538827039_1538439722_nThank you all for joining us at the Valentine’s Gala in the Château du Lac on Saturday evening and we are delighted that funds raised on the evening including PTP school funds, 50th anniversary funds & CAS projects exceeded 33.000€. So thank you to everyone for their generosity and special thanks to all our sponsors and the outstanding efforts of the Gala Committee volunteers..

All funds raised will be used to enhance the school and divided equally between elementary, middle and high school. The projects will be decided upon by the PTP and the School Administration. Please send us any ideas you may have as parents have a significant say in this choice.

So we drank champagne, won super prizes in the tombola, bid on items in the silent and live auctions, enjoyed the fine dining, danced the Charleston and then boogied until the early hours. We hope that you met new friends and will have lovely memories of the Gala evening. We were humbled by the inspirational CAS projects we supported on the night and are delighted they raised significant amounts for their ongoing projects.
