The kickoff party for our 26th Annual Everest Gala was a great celebration of our story, and the beginning of the story for this year’s event (Saturday, April 28, 2018, at the Auburn Hills Marriott). Hosted by Tom and Diana Shea, the party was a great success, with 85 people attending. In addition to bringing the first acquisitions for this year’s auction, guests enjoyed time with each other and shared a little karoke. One of the highlights of the evening was a sneak peak at the upcoming EC Drama spring production of Into the Woods (click here to learn more on Facebook.) Students Danielle Brown, George Reichert, Kyle Smith, and Matthew Stafford performed three songs for guests.
Mike Nalepa, president of Everest Collegiate High School & Academy, thanked the evening’s hosts and all the volunteers who made the evening possible, as well as our sponsors: Variety Food Services, the Vicari Family with Andiamo, Robert Mondavi Winery, and Frankenmuth Brewery.
