The final dues have been paid and I am very happy to announce that the evening was a huge success! A total of $4.447 was raised and more than 80 new hearts connected to our cause! Amazing!! All of it was made possible by the hard work and devotion by one man: Thomas McDonnell. His Herculean efforts of negotiating and coordinating over the past months turned the gala into a spectacular evening. I want to extend my gratitude to everyone who came out and all who donated towards the event. Also special thanks to Navneet Magon Anand for the beautiful painting she created for the event auction and for all the donors to our raffle prizes!! You are all now part of making the school!! Next up is the ground breaking May 12th in Bouaké! We will upload all the photos shortly to our gallery.
