$27,500 Raised!

An Evening With Shark Tank Star Daymond John was an enormous success!

So many people participated to make our school’s fundraiser a wonderful occasion: 350 people attended and purchased tickets; 22 sponsors generously supported the event; and attendees represented all facets of our community—business leaders, parents, students, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends.

We are pleased to announce we profited $27,500 in support of our school’s Annual Fund, which benefits our terrific student body and outstanding school programs.

Daymond John provided an energetic and memorable talk, and later posted on his Instagram a nice message complimenting his evening in Albuquerque with our school community.
