West Seattle schools: Hope/SLHS event exceeded goals

With Thanksgiving less than a week away, some words of thanks tonight for those who spent last Friday night giving to two local schools:

Last Friday night, on 11-11-11, over 360 people gathered at Hope Lutheran and Seattle Lutheran High Schools to “Light up the Night” for the kids – and Light it up they did! Head auctioneer Graham Crow kept the bidding fast and furious as items ranging from signed Seattle Sounders gear to paradise vacations to handmade gifts were auctioned off. In addition, the schools’ fund-a-need for Smart Boards was met with tremendous generosity, and as a result every classroom will soon be equipped with this technology! Scholarship funds were also funded to help ensure that we can provide assistance to families that need it.

In the end, all the goals for the event were exceeded, and the community surrounding these kids shined brighter than ever. We want to thank everyone that contributed in some way to the event; parents, students, alumni, church members, business owners, etc. It was inspiring to see how everyone came together for the kids.

    A HUGE thank-you to Stephanie & Myrna & everyone who helped make this such a memorable evening! As the mother & mother-in-law of Hope & SLHS graduates & the Grandmother of current Hope students, it was awesome to see many there ready to “Light up the Night” for the students of both schools.

Sorry, comment time is over.
