Thank you to the over 250 people who helped us to celebrate 25 Years of Academic Excellence Friday evening!
Our D’Evelyn Choir provided entertainment and there were many different ways to support our school: The Auction committee sold beautiful Spirale Wine Glasses, Boys and Girls Soccer held a wine pull, the DEF Board distributed some high value re-loadable DEF King Soopers Cards, and we held some fun drawings in addition to the silent and live auctions.
Financially, we also have reason to celebrate! After expenses, Friday evening we raised more than $70,000. Half (~$35,000) will be dedicated to the gym renovation project, and half (~$35,000) to the DEF general fund, that is used to support academics, the arts, athletics and scholarships for D’Evelyn students annually.
Since the paddle raise generated over $30,000, the Foundation has agreed to grant $30,000 from reserve funds to the Gymnasium Renovation project.
Thank you again to all our sponsors, our numerous dedicated volunteers and item donors who made this evening an event to remember.
