Rosarian Academy Bringing Early Christmas Celebration to The Breakers: Annual Auction &p; Ball this Saturday, November 22
WHAT: Rosarian Academy is starting the Holiday Season early this year with its 36th Annual Auction &p; Ball, Christmas in Hollywood, at The Breakers this Saturday, November 22, 2014. Inspired by the 1946 movie, ÒItÕs a Wonderful Life,Ó Auction Chairs, Laura Herlong and Cindy Osborne, will transform the Ponce De Leon ballroom into a Christmas scene filled with hundreds of members of the Rosarian community acting as Òvintage HollywoodÓ stars.
With the goal of raising $350,000 for the local private school, the chairwomen and their vast committee are planning the holiday party to be remembered, including silent and live auctions, dinner, dancing, raffles and more. While guests will use smart phones and iPads to bid for silent auction items through BidPal for the second year in a row, auctioneer and long-time supporter of Rosarian Academy, Jim Arrigo, will lead the live auction.
As an independent school, Rosarian relies solely on donations and fundraising activities to bridge the gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of educating students.
