On Friday evening, October 12, 2012 more than 200 parents, faculty, staff, and trustees came together for the best party in the history of IMS. Parents from around the world attended the Parents Weekend Gala, and we enjoyed coming together as a community.
Wendy Casale-Lewis P’20 and her team of parent volunteers gave us an artistic treat as we walked into a beautifully decorated tent on Stockton Field. The charm and ambiance that Wendy and her team created for us was magnificent.
Ram Miles and IMS alumnus John D’Ercole ’03 played soft jazz as we enjoyed fabulous hors d’oeuvres and an incredible dinner by Sage dining.
Jill Vantine P’13 P’10 and her team of parent volunteers ensured select silent auction items were available for lively bidding along with incredible live auction items.
Once again, Robin McGraw, IMS trustee and parent of Andie ’13, took the stage as our auctioneer for our live auction and engaged the room with his wit and charm. Everyone rallied with great spirit to support the school by bidding on fabulous vacation homes and contributing funds to the many programs at IMS. A huge thank you to Robin McGraw!
Dancing capped off this great night with the ever-popular band, Ram Miles and the Parental Units. Our Gala has received rave reviews from everyone! Thank you to the many parent volunteers and the faculty and staff who worked behind the scenes to make the evening such a fabulous success. A big thank you to Wendy Casale-Lewis and Jill Vantine for chairing the event!
