Swansea Pub Night a smashing success

Thanks to the generosity of the Swansea community, Swansea P.S.’s inaugural pub night was a great evening out for those who attended, and an extremely successful fundraiser. A sellout crowd of 250 people packed into Earth restaurant to bid on silent and live auction items, cut a rug, and to catch up with new and old friends.

The event surpassed its ambitious goal of raising $20,000 for the school, with a final figure still being calculated.

Now that the money has been raised, Swansea school council will determine how to spend the proceeds.  If you would like to be part of the discussion, attend the March council meeting, scheduled for Wednesday March 21.

Thank you to everyone who attended, made a donation, bought an auction item, volunteered, sold tickets, or talked up the event beforehand.  And a special thank you to the teachers who organized the fantastic class baskets for the silent auction, and to all the staff who came.  It was great to see you there.

Congratulations to organizers Kathy Richmond and Siobhan Blessing!
