“ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE GALA” NEWS

Wow, what a great Party!  We wish to thank all those who supported our Gala dinner dance and auctions!  We are very thankful for all those who also supported our raffle books and volunteered to help with setup, take down and with the many prizes and desserts donated.  It was a great event from start to finish and raised very important monies for our earthquake and safety needs!  Although not as immediately noticeable as a school bus, or computer labs, our earthquake safety needs are a very extensive and costly undertaking that will be explained at our Mandatory General Meeting on March 11.  The OLS Gala will now take a 2 year hiatus, as it is a very big undertaking.  This main fundraiser group has produced three Galas in four years and raised over $75,000 for all school needs which goes directly to the students.  We wish to congratulate our entire PEC, Gala Committee Chairs:  Angela D’Elia and Luisa Cuccione, as well as the entire committee:  Janice Bondi, Gina Buchanan, Tina Delli Santi, Katie McKenzie, Jessica Pineda and Mac Santalucia.  A special thanks to Sara Bondi for her organization of the raffle booklets and also to “DJ” Paul Bath and family for the great energy and music!  Many parents and staff helped to make this event special!
