Browne Academy PROM Auction A Huge Success
What a wonderful night we had March 11 Browne Academy’s 2017 PROM Auction. This year’s Auction raised more than $150,000 for the school!
The 215 guests totally embraced our PROM theme in both attire and entertainment. The Middle School and CAPA were transformed, thanks to the creative vision of our chairs, Lina Ali and Leticia Forrest, and our committee volunteers, who gave their time to assemble auction bidder packets, move furniture, set up chairs and tables, blow up balloons, etc. A special thank-you goes to Angel Hayman, who took the lead on our table centerpieces and special decorative touches throughout both buildings. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Thank you to our generous sponsors, underwriters, advertisers, and item donors. Our silent and live auctions featured a variety of trips and getaways, sociable parties, experiences, professional services, and creative class gifts. As always, the Time with Teachers category was a huge hit, creating a bit of a bidding frenzy in Mr. Pottle’s classroom.
We were overjoyed by the generosity of the attendees, who set a new school record by giving $51,000 to the Emotional Appeal supporting faculty and staff professional development. If you missed seeing the Raise the Paddle video, or you would like to view it again, please click here.
Our PROM was a totally awesome event, bringing the community together to have a ball while raising money for the school.
