Welcome to TCNS’ annual benefit, Under the Big Top: The Greatest Preschool on Earth! We are absolutely thrilled you have chosen to be a part of this exciting night! Each year we come together to celebrate the TCNS community, and to raise funds to support the unique programs that make TCNS such a fantastic school.
We are so very appreciative to all of the individuals and businesses that provided us with donations or sponsorship.
We would also like to thank the following individuals who gave us the gift of their time and talents:
• Rebecca Johnson, our Board President for being a constant avenue of support.
• Lauren Williams for the beautiful picture table favors of our children.
• Lou Morrone, our awesome auctioneer.
• Gold Medal Cleaner, for generously donating the dry cleaning of the table overlays for the night.
Of course, none of this would be achievable without the leadership, passion, imagination and energy of our director, Sue Gaertner, and the extraordinary TCNS teachers and staff. Every year, Sue has a vision for FUNdraising that allows us to build community while working toward closing the gap between tuition and operating costs.
Last, but certainly not least, we would like to show our appreciation to the truly amazing and phenomenal FUNdraising committee members who helped make this night a reality:
