Auction a Roaring (Twenties) Success!

The Speakeasy Club (aka the Grand Hyatt ballroom) was jumping on Saturday night with about 480 flappers, gangsters, guys and dolls! Preliminary figures show our estimated net proceeds to be nearly $200,000! When all the numbers are in, we'll publish a more accurate count.

There was no lack of fabulous feather boas and pin-striped suits, fedoras and beads, not to mention the magical champagne-colored deco. Photos of the event are posted on our Shutterfly site:    (password=islandschool)

We are deeply grateful to all the parents, staff, faculty, grandparents and friends whose hard work made this event so much fun and so successful. The Auction Committee is listed below:

The Silent Auction tables were buzzing with bidding.
