On Saturday night, March 25, Marietta Country Club was full of laughter as our GRACEPOINT family came together to raise money for our student scholarship fund.
With an attendance of over 175, the 1st attempt at our own event was quite a success! Guests enjoyed a delicious buffet of hors d’oeuvres while making new friends and listening to well known tunes provided by Ian Campbell and the Recruits. The band’s guitarist, Austin Carter, is the husband of our own amazing math teacher, Marni Carter.
Christian comedian and former GRACEPOINT parent, Kenn Kington took the stage as the main event. Along with hilarious stories, Kenn touched hearts by explaining what GRACEPOINT has meant to his family, being that his daughter Kennedy was the first girl enrolled in the school.
Comedian Kenn switched roles to Auctioneer for our live auction. Several folks went home with fabulous vacation rentals along with one of a kind artwork pieces by GRACEPOINT students.
Teacher experiences such as Wilhelmina’s Special Guest, Dr. Morphology’s assistant and Principal for the Day were among the most popular silent auction items.
This event will provide $40,300 in academic scholarships for students at GRACEPOINT. A big thanks to Kendra Odom for chairing the event and to all of the many parents that contributed their time and donations to make this a success!
