“Casino Night at the Wishlist Gala”

Saturday, March 5th, 2016 from 7:00 to 11:00 pm

Dear Blaine Parents,

Friends of Blaine (FOB) is excited to announce the 2016 Annual Fundraising Gala – “Casino Night at the Wishlist Gala.” Friends of Blaine’s mission is to raise funds for Blaine and remove some  financial obstacles. The annual Gala represents FOB’s most important fundraising effort of the year.  By working together as a community, we can raise the bar and make this year the best yet.

FOB is also committed to creating opportunities by partnering with the corporate community, allowing for local businesses to secure and build relationships that can lead outstanding relationships between the school and Lakeview community.

Due to your generosity last year, we were able to raise over $100,000 from the Gala and parent and staff hosted parties. These funds, along with the walk-a-thon donations, supported Blaine causes including:

  • New lockers for the middle school students
  • Lunch recess supervision and engagement (We’ve Got Game)
  • Printing of the Blaine Blast
  • Arts programs including Dancing with Class, Forward Momentum and LookingGlass
  • and much more!

This year, we are determined to exceed last year’s donations with the goal is to fund raise $150,000. We are confident that with your help, we can achieve it!  This level of funding would allow Friends of Blaine to purchase much-needed new laptops for teachers, new computers for students, and new Promethean boards for every classroom. In addition, this year we invite parents to directly contribute to programs of specific interest with the Wish List currently being created by the teachers and administration.

Our children need to feel valued and confident about their future. By creating partnerships throughout the Lakeview community and with your financial commitment, Friends of Blaine can help our students to a greater path to success. This Gala is a huge step in bringing the mission of Friends of Blaine to life! Tickets can be purchased starting February 1st.


Your Friends of Blaine Board and Volunteers
