Safari! Dinner Auction Nets Approximately $65,000

160 community members got wild for education at PHEF’s Safari! Dinner Auction at Winchester Country Club on March 2nd.  While a few receipts and expenses continue to trickle in, preliminary numbers show the event netted around $65,000!

Proceeds from the event will help preserve library services and other educational programs at Sierra Hills and Weimar Hills Schools in the 2012-2013 school year.

What an unbelievable community we live in where so many generous people embrace the Foundation’s mission to help insure 1,000 area school children receive a quality education they deserve.

Heartfelt thanks to all the fantastic donors, sponsors, advertisers, and volunteers who made this event such a great success.

What an UNBELIEVABLE PHEF Safari!

People definitely got Wild for Education last Friday night – in more ways than one – at PHEF’s Safari! Dinner Auction at Winchester Country Club.

Attendees really showed their wild side in helping to preserve library services at Sierra Hills and Weimar Hills School next year, by pledging approximately $20,000 in under 10 minutes!

Final proceeds from the event will be available shortly.

Heartfelt thanks to all the attendees, volunteers, donors, and sponsors who made this event a truly unforgettable and amazing experience.

Kathy Ito, PHEF President
