the event is run through our development office, who is our friend jennifer, and the theme was journey to excellence. the goal this year was to raise money for our new international baccalaureate program training - something everyone is excited about.
air hollywood, a stage and studio that houses props and sets for all things aviation. movies, tv shows and commercials that have an airport or airplane scene were most likely filmed here. they also have a replica of a pan am airplane body where they offer the pan am experience.
guests mingled, ate appetizers and bid on the silent auction items that were available.
and sitting in the luxury seats.
dinner was braised short ribs, barramundi, mashed potatoes and green beans. but the highlight was the carrot souffle.
and for dessert a flourless chocolate cake and cookies.
during dinner there were speeches; one by the president of the board of trustees, aka bobby. and the live auction went live and raised lots of money.
everyone went home with a chocolate airplane, made by a cha parent, and a gala luggage tag.
the next morning a few of us came back to put everything back to normal (i showed up to do the sweeping) and to recap the night's event. overall it was a first class event and we are so thankful to everyone that had a part in putting it together and those that attended the event.
congratulations jennifer for an unforgettable event!
