A Night on Treasure Island -
Saturday, April 21, 2007
The American Academy Spring Gala will be held at the Marriott Denver South at Park Meadows on Saturday, April 21. The evening will consist of a silent auction, a live auction, dinner, and dancing. Tickets will go on sale in mid-February. The cost is $75 per couple and $40 per individual.
Last year, the event raised more than $43,000 for the school and this year the hope is to raise $45,000. The funds will be used for MST, the library, teacher funds, families in need, as well as to help fund the permanent building.
Donation items for the silent auction are needed, especially vacation condos, business services, theater or sporting tickets. Need more information or have any questions? Please contact Mary Schroeder at email@example.com or Vivian Winston at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome, Mr. Bishop!
