April 18 was a “roaring” success. This was MSC’s most profitable spring event ever. While we are still tallying up the funds, it appears that we’ve grossed just over $30,000 and net just over $23,000!

There are so many people that helped with this process that I don’t even know how/where to begin.
A huge thanks to ALL of our parents and staff. Thank you for buying tickets, sponsoring tickets for our teachers and their spouses, donating items, recruiting donations, attending the event, serving on committees, sponsoring, bidding at the auction, and bidding from afar.

Many, many thanks to our auction chair, Rebecca Coffman, our co-chair, Becky Carter, and our Development Director, Heather Hinchey. Thank you for the countless hours of thought and preparation and for seeing to it that no detail was overlooked. You outdid yourselves!
Thank you to our committee chairs and volunteers (listed below) and to my husband, Jamie, who manages to make every committee every time!
