Thursday, 6/30/11, The Schooba Academy held their first hopefully annual fundraiser at Pub One in Dumbo, Brooklyn. It was a truly great event, and I feel so tremendously lucky to have such an amazing network of people supporting Schooba. We owe a huge thank you to all of the people that came out (seriously, ALL OF YOU! Thank you so much.), to Gideon, Jesse, and Amanda and Paige Management for their generous donations, and to the businesses that sponsored the event: Ascend Laboratories, Kyotofu, and Westwood Pool Company. More thanks to Sam for handling the logistics, Steph for guest bartending, and of course Mom, Dad, Rob, Britt, Yosh, Adam, and Alyssa. None of this would have been possible without you.
The good news is it isn’t over! We’re giving away two final prizes via an online silent auction. Click the link below to bid on a brand new K2 Morrow Radium Snowboard and a package of 6 microdermabrasion skin treatments from SLEEK MedSpa! All bids must be placed by 8:00 PM, July 14, 2011.
