This past Saturday, we hosted our annual Gala and Auction, a sold-out event which was held in the courtyard, on our beautiful campus. All proceeds from the evening will benefit Holy Comforter and the Head of SchoolSpecialProject Fund. This year's Fund will support professional development and provide additional salary resources for our teachers. This project will ensure Holy Comforter recruits and retains the very best educators in Tallahassee.

The James Bond themed, Casino Royale Gala welcomed over 280 guests to a one-of-a-kind experience as guests enjoyed a night of fun, casino games and fellowship benefitting Holy Comforter. Stunning flower arrangements adorned the tables and delectable wines welcomed sponsors to their seats. Attendees had the opportunity to bid on silent auction items that included health and beauty products, jewelry, athletic collectibles and our very own student art. During dinner, the live auction featured friendly competition over once in a lifetime experiences, jewelry, unique dinner parties and wonderful vacations. The raffle winner for the HCES tuition giveaway was drawn during the live auction, as well. The evening concluded with the dancing to the incredible sounds of DJ Scully.
Numerous volunteers worked countless hours under the direction of Jayme Roper, 2018 Gala Chair, to make the evening a success. We were thrilled with the outcome of the event and we want to thank our incredible volunteers, as well as, our gracious sponsors and donors. With your time, energy and support, the evening was a tremendous success!
