Wow! What a fantastic show of support on Saturday night! SHAKE OUT was a huge success. We are still processing final donations and outstanding bills, but we are estimating a record breaking $100,000 in net proceeds!

Some of the highlights were: Delicious food and signature drinks were served cocktail party-style throughout the whole venue which allowed for plenty of time and space to mingle with new and old friends! 

We were honored to have a record number of sponsors this year: Black Pig, Christopher Farm & Gardens, Dr. Brian Obrochta & Family, Dr. Nicholas Draeger & Family, Just Kids Dental, NAI Pfefferle, Guske Electric, Morgan Stanley/The North Point Group, CIBM Mortgage, Summit Credit Union, CPI Plastics, Inc, Delzer Lithograph, Signature Dental, and BankFirst.Pre-recorded entertainment featured staff, students, and our emcees, Ben Igowsky and Jessie Edwards as not one, but two James Bonds!

Our game stations of Pick-an-Olive, Bond Girl Match Game, James Bond Trivia, Mystery Jewelry Raffle, and "Secret Message", provided fun activities to do throughout the cocktail hour. We sold 946 pre-event raffle tickets! An unbelievable assortment and quantity of silent auction items.Awesome live auction items and class projects! 304 in attendance. You missed it? Be sure to join the fun next year!

The support for the event was overwhelming and indicative of how LCA families and community members work tirelessly together to meet our mission to bring the best education possible to our students. For those who donated, attended, purchased auction items, volunteered, solicited donations, and purchased and sold raffle tickets, THANK YOU!

It is an adult night out of food, fun, and raising money for LCA! It is our "one and only fundraiser." As a charter school, we receive less money per pupil than traditional public schools. It is very important to raise extra money so we are able to purchase necessary items outside of our normal operating budget. This year, our proceeds will be used for upgrades in our cafeteria kitchen so we will be able to prepare all school lunches onsite starting next year.

Rob and Katy Hurrie of the Black Pig & The Berkshire, will be offering their entire restaurant facility for our event.

Absolutely! Well, it is just for adults but we encourage all school parents and their adult friends and family to attend.

This fun event has a new location this year at Black Pig/The Berkshire. This venue will allow guests to freely move around to peruse auction items, participate in theme-centered activities, socialize, and enjoy dinner served by tray passing of heavy appetizers and food stations throughout. Doors will open at 5 p.m. and are usually wrapped up by 10 p.m. 

Nope. We don't have a dress code and we just want our guests to feel comfortable. Many dress for the theme, but it is not necessary!
