12th Annual Denim & Diamonds Gala & Auction
April 7, 2018

This year’s gala & auction was held on April 7, 2018 at the Marriott Legacy Town Center.  The “Lone Starry Night” proved to be a great night of giving back to the community with 600+ in attendance.  We want to thank all those generous bidders that bought an auction item from either our online , silent or live auctions.  This year we hit an all time high with a record breaking bid of $20,000 on a single live auction item.  Your generous hearts is one of the things that sets this district apart.  Lovejoy parents care for their child’s education and want to equip the teachers with the latest educational equipment.  YOU are like no other.  A special congratulations for a job well done goes out to Carrie McClure and the committee chairs for a night that was simply fantastic.  The thank you list is very long, but thank you to everyone who sponsored, donated, attended, bid, purchased a program ad, volunteered, or purchased a Spring Fling party ticket, etc. It takes a village to raise this many dollars and parents, like You that care about their child’s education.

 Lone Starry Night was a success with dinner, dancing, fellowship and most importantly, raising funds for the students and teachers of Lovejoy.

Thank you to our 2018 Sponsors.
