Our 3rd annual Luck o’ the Irish Casino Night took place Saturday night, April 18 at Wedgewood Country Club in Powell. It was a great success! We raised about $7500, which is going toward the purchase of needed items not currently in the budget, such as Scioto jackets for the Marching Band and other needs. We are hopeful that a pending grant application will be approved as well.
This kind of event needs a large number of volunteers to plan and run, so we appreciate everyone who lent a hand before, during or after the event. If your name is not specifically mentioned here and you helped out, our apologies-we do really appreciate you!
All students who helped with pulling silent auction bid sheets, setup and/or teardown or performed with the Jazz Ensemble or IFF will receive service hour letters.
Thank you for attending, first of all. We increased our numbers this year in great part due to the student involvement in the ticket sales contest and also to all others who helped invite friends, family, neighbors and co-workers. Again, thanks, Mr. Lewis, for being a good sport about the PIEing!
A special thank you goes to a special alumni band mom, Janet Sharritts, who called ALL of our 8th grade parents to invite them to attend.
