Hello Awesome SES Community,

With all of your amazing support we raised just under $35,000 to support staffing at our amazing school. Thank you so much! Your support—whether it be signing up to volunteer to set up or take down, sell Hawaii raffle tickets, pick up a keg or just plain swill cocktails—is KEY to our success.

This event takes so many folks to procure, sort, organize, decorate, input, market, design, entertain, check-in, check-out and generally just be present! It is a Herculean effort, and with all of your help we moved a mountain.

I would like to thank particularly the auction team: Kieran Cannistra, Charity Fain and Holly Cook. You three took it up to at least 13. I would also like to thank Becky O’Leary (for being wherever she was needed), Mo Phillips, Leonie Alaeddine, Justine Light, Jarrett Altman for making the white fluffies, Emory Oeding and Michelle Schardt for lovely flowers, Jill Kehoe, Jeran Turner, Chloe Derderian, Leaux Elstad, and of course Marissa and Ian at BEESWING, the best venue ever!

And quick shout-out to the Maui raffle auction’s big winner: Sean Hathaway. WOOT, WOOT, YEAH SEAN!

And since we’re always looking forward to the future…let’s see how we can top it next year!

With more thanks and a full heart,
Corby Watkins
SES Foundation Auction Chair
