What an AMAZING Night!

Oh, what a night! Night Owl was a smashing success!

Thank you to the entire Benefit Committee for all the time and talent that was put into making Friday night possible. This includes the Co Chairs of the event- Carrie Ostericher, Kate Marnell, Tracy Zoberis, the Auction team, Party chairs, Wine Pull, Underwriting and Classroom Art. We were in awe of the auction list as it grew over the last year, all made possible by our Oak families and local businesses.

Thank you to all parents for your support. In the end, the success of Friday night was dependent on each other’s generosity.
