Academic Partners would like to thank everyone who helped make the Mardi Gras Gala a success!! We give a special thanks to Vintage Comfort Food Truck and Sylvia’s Creations and Catering for sponsoring our king cake walk. Thank you to everyone that sent in candy. Thanks to the volunteers who helped in the planning, made posters, ordered and picked up supplies, sold tickets during lunch, decorated before the event and worked the night of the event. Thanks to the administrators, support staff and teachers who helped us in planning the event, setting up the cafeteria and hosting the evening. Thanks to the parents who encouraged their kids to attend and provided transportation. Not only are the galas some of our most successful fundraisers, but they are also a fun opportunity for our students to socialize and build memories. We couldn’t host them without you – so thanks again to everyone who helped us make this gala a night to remember.
