Successful Auction

Carol Oko, Associate Director, with Jonathan Lord, '97, and his mother, Nancy. Jonathan was the auctioneer at our Auction Gala on Sunday. This is his third year helping us raise funds for scholarships and school programming. He is a lively and funny speaker - and also inspiring. He told about a fellow Parker alum - a Washington attorney who makes an enormous difference in the community. He urged auction attendees to raise their bids high to help make a difference for Parker students.

This year we had music by The Providers, the band of Vinny Arminino, father of David '07 and Alexandra '04. We had beer tasting courtesy of Chatham Brewing and Jake Cunningham, father of Kiki '11, Lara '13, and Coleman '16. We also had balloon popping for prizes - lots of fun!

All agreed the party atmosphere was wonderful. We had a festive evening and raised money to support Parker - a great combination!
