On Saturday, June 9th, the Patriot Legacy Education Foundation proudly hosted its very first gala…Parent Prom! The night was full of entertainment and fun and we were so pleased with the support of our community. Live music was provided by one LFCS’ very own 6th grade teachers. Harvey Curry and his fellow singers from the Remembrance Tribute Band donated both their time and talent for the evening. Along with the full dance floor, the live music was a highlight of the evening.
Additionally, a brand new tradition was formed with the presentation of the Patriot Legacy Award to our Parent Prom Honoree, Scott Atherton. His wife, Donna shared their incredible life story as Scott served our country as a Navy Seal even with the diagnosis of cancer along with his subsequent treatment and surgeries that would end up costing him dearly. Yet, he still served. And we are so thankful.
Throughout the evening, a silent auction and a raffle were held. We were so happy to send home many contented winners…including Nancy Erwin who won diamond earrings (worth over $1,800) in the VIP raffle!
While the parents were enjoying a fabulous evening, the kids had just as much fun! Our athletics director put together a wonderful evening of games and food to entertain the children.
At the end of the night, the PLEF raised over $5000. These monies will go toward our campaign to purchase our first ten passenger van for our sports teams and field trips. Thanks to all of those who volunteered and participated! Looking forward to Parent Prom 2019!
