I hear only a few tickets are left for Northeast Elementary School’s bi-annual fundraiser called LOL. This year’s attendees will get the chance to watch comedian Pete Dominick (at left with Andrew Dice Clay), an opening act on Stephen Colbert and host of his own SiriusXM radio show. Dominick will perform at LOL’s posh venue The Loft. Also on the menu for the evening: Wine, cocktails, homemade chili (prepared by the talented Lisa Davies) and other baked goodies along with snazzy auction items such as a 3-hour private plane, free weeks of different summer camps, seven days at a Vail, Colorado, vacation home, a watercolor of your house, student lunches with their favorite teachers and much more. I’m always amazed at the door prizes–how do they get so much cool stuff?
All proceeds will benefit the school’s PTA, Global Studies and Reading Workshop programs.
Co-chair and NE parent Jane Berra told me she enjoys raising money to enhance the kids’ school experience. Coordinating a big event like this one is no easy task, but it’s worth it. “Our committee thought hosting a comedian would be fun and different,” she said. “Most importantly, we get the chance to support our children’s school while having fun with friends.”
I’ve got my tix–get yours ASAP! The details are below…
