This year’s gala will take everyone back to our fun & relatively care free days of yesteryear – whether via baby steps or moonwalkin’, going on adventures with the ‘breakfast club’ or singing in the ‘purple rain’ – just put on those laced gloves, scrunchies and parachute pants and get set for a rockin’ fun time while raising lots for our school!
