Our 8th annual Rock the HeARTS Events have come to a close and on behalf of the El Dorado Community School PTA, School Staff and Students, I would like to say THANK YOU! Together we raised over $13,000 for the much needed supplies, equipment and student needs at El Dorado Community School.
The art, services and goods that were so generously donated made both of our silent auctions a great success. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support by local artisans and businesses. We cannot thank you enough for coming to our aid for this and other fundraisers for El Dorado Community School. THANK YOU!
Our second annual Adults Only event at Cafe Fina was a fun night out with great music by Marc Yaxley, amazing food by the owner of Cafe Fina, Murphy O’Brien, incredible silent auction items, including original pottery by our school students, and all kinds of Eldorado and Santa Fe residents in attendance. THANK YOU!
The school event, Rock the HeARTS, was filled with parents, guardians, students, staff and community members who enjoyed the musical performances of students from Kindergarten up to 8th grade. Thank you to our amazing music teachers, Janine Sammeth, Galen Prenovost, April Pickrell and Don Higgins for all of your hard work and genius in putting together some very wonderful performances. Great food from Santa Fe School of Cooking, Whoo’s Donuts and Cafe Fina were a hit as well. Thank you especially to Kristen Krell of Santa Fe School of Cooking and Georgina Gibson for taking on planning the menu and food for the event, and being there to serve up their delicious offerings all night.
Thank you to our very talented and driven art teachers, Roni Rohr and Stephanie Morris, for coming up with this year’s theme and working so hard with the students to complete all of the original pottery pieces that were sold to support the school, as well as decorating the school with all original works for Rock the HeARTS. It is so much fun to see the incredible creativity that our children possess displayed all over the school walls.
Thank you to our sponsors, Café Fina, Cameron Veterinary, Darmitzel Orthodontics, Eldorado Audiology, FASTSIGNS, Jensen Elledge Dental, La Posada, Make Time, McPartlon Roofing, Santa Fe School of Cooking, Whoo’s Donuts and State Employees Credit Union, for your generous donations. We are proud to be part of such a caring business community and thank you for stepping up.
Thank you, also, to our student clubs for participating this year! Your presence and help is just one more thing that made Rock the HeARTS a success this year. We are so proud of you and your commitments to your community and school.
I want to give a final and big thank you to all of you who volunteered your time in planning, going out to get donations, creating the graphics (Thank you, Christy Jacobs!) and working at this year’s Rock the Arts events. You are a HUGE part of our success. This year, I am proud to say, that we had more than enough volunteers. It truly made such a difference and gave everyone the opportunity to enjoy their time at both events. THANK YOU!
Thank you all for making Rock the HeARTS 2018 a success this year!
