Thoughts from Tuesday Night
Dear Loma/CT Parents and Guardians:
Got Gala? Don’t miss out!
The annual “best night on the mountain” is only three weeks away. If you haven’t reserved your tickets, please do so now as the event is likely to sell out. The Gala, held at the beautiful Maison du Lac property owned by Patti Hughes, is not only a festive, friendly and fun evening, but it is also the biggest fund raiser of the year for our schools. You don’t have to spend a ton of money at the Gala to have a good time (though feel free). I get outbid on almost everything each year. Attending the event, adding to the excitement, and showing up for your kids schools is an easy way to show your school spirit and make a difference that will impact the future. I want to say thank you all the volunteers who are gearing up for a great event, the generous Gala Sponsors who make the event possible, the many local donors who continue to give in support of our kids, and all of you who attend, dance, bid, and dress up just for the fun of it. And, of course, thank you Patti Hughes for your big heart and sharing your beautiful home with all of us.
The Gala is a wonderful event. Please join me for a night under the stars on our amazing mountain. You can get more information here: http://www.lpef.org/about2
Pre-order tickets, advance purchase adult beverages, and order your tickets for the parking space drawing. See you there!
If you are interested in using Kids and Co for childcare, please see the posted flyer for “Parents’ Night Out”.
