A special “Thank You” to our amazing volunteer Co-Chairs, Jennifer Goodman P’20, ’22, ’25 and Tammy Mager P’22, ’24, for their leadership and guidance throughout the entire event planning process. Their inspiration, dedication, attention to detail and great company made working on this important financial fund for our community even that much more fun! To our entire Bulldog Bash Committee who worked continuously on sponsorships, auction items, décor and displays, you made the evening shine! Lastly, to our sponsors and donors, who firmly believe in our cause to support Financial Aid, our mission to “make it better” is only made possible thanks to your generosity!
All of our guests were well-entertained throughout the night thanks to the celebrated improvisational performance of Freestyle Love Supreme which kept the audience tapping, rapping and laughing. Upon check-in, each guest was asked to think of one word and write it down on a notecard. Our performers then randomly selected words submitted that evening by guests, and created a rap promptly right there on the spot! And of course, throughout the evening, DJ Shant kept the tunes spinning and the dance floor rockin’ as our MC Trevor Shaw kept the show on track!
The highlight of the evening was a heartfelt and inspiring speech by graduating parent, Jeffrey Seller P ’21,’22 who talked about the role of luck in our success and the meaningful benefits of passing luck along via financial aid contributions. He led the way to the Reverse Auction with the assistance of our funny and talented Auctioneer, Roseann Todd P’19, ’23. A record $232,000 was raised via Reverse Auction that night thanks to their outstanding work.
Our night ended sweetly with take home treats provided to every guest from The Treat House (Christopher and Jennifer Russell P’22, ’24). All around it was a very successful evening and we are thrilled with the contribution to Financial Aid! Thanks to everyone who attended, donated, sponsored, bid, bought a raffle ticket and supported our cause!
