The 2015 EDS Mardi Gras Party & Silent Auction was a resounding success! Of the 175 guests, almost everyone went home a winner. EDS parent, Michelle Ansley, won the top raffle prize of an expense-paid, 5-day Wine Country excursion for two to Sonoma, California ! Other parents and guests scored great auction wins including vacation getaways, original artworks by our students and local professional artists, tickets to sporting events, Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum concert tickets, home decor, spa and beauty packages, signed sports memorabilia, and so much more.
EDS teacher and coach, Jaye Cohen, was crowned King; and EDS parent, Ashley Poston, was crowned Queen of Mardi Gras.
EDS parent and popular local anchorman, Brad Means, emceed the event dressed in full Mardi Gras regalia!
It was a night of delicious food and drink, wonderful live jazz, and lots of people having fun while supporting our school. It wouldn’t have been possible without the help of a hard-working event committee, our generous sponsors, and supportive auction donors.
