Yet another wildly successful fundraiser is in the books, and it would not be possible without every single volunteer who pitched in to make it happen in all sorts of ways. First of all, our fearless leader, Freshman parent, Karen Flores Goldberg, did a remarkable job pulling this all together as Showcase chair. Karen extraordinarily led us with grace and calmness. It was great to see her work. Her husband, Daniel Goldberg went above and beyond to do the heavy lifting to help make this a success.
Deep thanks go to Tracy and Rob Smith. They picked up the big box truck that picked up and delivered the screens for all the artwork, the equipment, music stands, and instruments from the school. They even made an extra trip for a drum riser. Later this morning, they will be at the NHS Bus Loop to drop off everything and we hope we can get parent and student volunteers to help them at 10AM.
With over 125 volunteers, this would be a long email than you could read if we detailed each and every contribution to this beautiful event. There were no insignificant tasks. People helped at 8am on a Friday to unload the equipment truck and picked up and delivered food, water, snacks, coffee, sodas, creamer, and ice chests. They strung lights and then took them down. They helped decorate, put together centerpieces, filled programs, worked on the tech crew, checked in volunteers. They supported student performers in the Green Room, sold raffle tickets, and checked-in guests and VIPs. They were greeters, bartenders, VIP greeters, photographers, theater door monitors, hospitality volunteers, bussers, and wristband crew. They picked up food from our food partners and delivered them, served on the committee, put together the raffle baskets and organized the raffle, set up all the sound and lighting for the show, worked on the Fund-A-Need auction, and helped clean up. And they did it with so much grace, humor, and generous spirits. It takes so many hands to make magic happen. And we are so grateful to have such a caring community.
