The evening is funded by MANY parent volunteers, community members and local businesses and cannot take place without their active participation!

Fundraising continues right up until the day of the party! Freewill donations from individuals and families are always welcomed. Your donations will help us transform the school with decorations, music, games, and activities that run from 10:00 pm through 5:00 am!
