Many thanks to all our friends and family who came out for the Aim To Serve Kick-off Tuesday evening! We had a great time eating banana splits, watching some in the audience win some great prizes (congratulations, Sydney!), and learning about our 2nd Annual Aim To Serve fundraising event.
Austina Campbell, board member and Aim to Serve event director, led off with acknowledging our team of board members, staff, and volunteers who are leading the charge for Aim to Serve: Les Stencel, Josh Bearss, Jill Van Deel, Michael Courson, Erik Ritschard, Kent and Beth Mason, Krystal Griswold, Susie Hoppen, Cindy Lewis, Amy Taylor, and Deb Wade.
Beth Mason gave a brief parent testimony regarding why she values a DPCA education for her children, followed by a student testimony from junior Joel Parker. Austina, Erik, Michael,and Josh, along with Truman Abbott from Champion Events, took turns on the stage explaining how the events will work, encouraging faithful participation, giving away prizes, and showing the audience how to sign up to participate. There are three main components to this year's program: the Serve Day on May 2nd, the Clay Shoot on May 18th, and the Silent Auction, also on May 18th. The DPCA school family and friends of the Academy from all around the community are invited to participate in the events and help our school achieve our $45,000 goal.
