2014 Mane Event Is A Star-Studded Premiere!
West Palm Beach, Florida, March 6th, 2014 – The King’s Academy’s 2014 Mane Event Dinner and Auction was a huge success thanks to the generosity of so many people who joined in the effort! On Saturday, March 1, 2014, more than 250 friends and families of The King’s Academy came together for the school’s major fundraising event of the year. The Mane Event, which raised more than $340,000, was led by co-chairs Michelle Collier, Lisa Gerardi, and Dana Wilkerson along with an amazing leadership team. The evening was a fun and lively culmination of months of dedicated planning and the results are a tangible blessing to the students and programs of The King’s Academy.
This year’s event, entitled a Star-Studded Premiere was held under a chandelier lit tent on the beautiful lawns of the National Croquet Center. Guests walked the red carpet lined with paparazzi and famous Hollywood characters. They enjoyed showing their support by bidding on more than 400 unique silent and live auction items. including family getaways, entertainment events, memorabilia and the wildly popular We Love TKA spirit experiences. This year’s special project, Call to the Heart, raised more than $30,000 to provide air conditioning on all TKA route buses.
The annual event has raised more than $3 million over its thirteen year history. All proceeds from The Mane Event support The King’s Academy’s Annual Fund including need based financial assistance, co-curricular programing, faculty development, facilities improvement, and technology.
