A Message from our Co-Chairs
Welcome to our new 2013 CES Auction and Gala web page! To compliment our weekly Auction and Gala Newsletter, we have created this page to house the many resources which contribute to the success of our "Night in Oz", the theme for this year's Auction and Gala.
As many of you know, the Gala is the school's largest annual fund raising event. It is through this event and the school's overall fund raising program that we bridge the gap between expenses covered by tuition and the cost of providing an exceptional CES education. Last year's Gala raised over $45,000 and those monies were used to fund initiatives such as school-wide technology upgrades, curriculum enhancements and the purchase of our new CES buses. Your support of this year's Gala is critical to the school's commitment to continue such enhancements to the overall CES experience for our children.
Equally important, the Gala is also a wonderful community building event - from the new friendships that we forge as we plan and prepare for the event, to the spectacular evening where our extended CES family comes together for food, drink, dancing and laughter - the Gala brings our CES family even closer. As co-chairs of this year's Gala, this was one of the most compelling reasons why we chose to become involved.
And, we'd like to ask for your help too! Whether you are a new CES parent or a seasoned member of our community, there are so many easy ways to make an impact. Please review the information on this page and contact us directly to let us know one way you can help in making this important fund raising event a success.
Finally, and most importantly, please save the date of February 9, 2013 to join us in the "Emerald City!"
