Thank you to all the wonderful performers who wowed the crowd tonight at Tennyson's Spring Fling. The talent was incredible with everything from guitar, piano, violin, cello, and flute playing to beautiful singing, great dancing, karate, gymnastics, and acrobatics. It was wonderful to see so many talented and courageous students perform.
Events like this rely on parent volunteers and there were no shortage of them tonight ... thank you all!
A HUGE thanks goes out to Lori Satov who stepped up to oversee the whole event. It would not have happened otherwise. Thanks to dj Jackson (sound), Borja & Chard (stage), Rob & Cedric (sound), Steve (mc), Christine (bake sale), Tracy (food), Susan (raffle baskets), Judy (decorations), Toni (student sign ups), Kyle (kid control), and everyone who took a shift selling tickets and serving food, donating baking, setting up, and cleaning up. Sorry we can't name you all but THANK YOU! And thank you to Mme Lavoie ... this event could not happen without the support of administration at our school (notice she was there until the very end!).
The raffle baskets were a huge highlight (especially for me!!) and karma came into play with the organizers winning a few of the big baskets (we are calling it karma, not "fixed"). $1800 was raised from the raffle ... thank you to everyone who contributed to their divisions basket and to everyone who bought tickets.
And next time you are thinking Mexican Fiesta for a party ... the food was provided by Tennyson's own Tracy Rowand who is the owner of Taste to Savour. It was delicious!
