On February 2nd the John Carroll High School held their Annual Gala at the Pelican Yacht Club in Fort Pierce. This year Special Events Coordinator, Sarah Pride chose the theme “Innovation In Education” to represent the Gala’s high-tech ambiance. John Carroll is a Top Notch school already keeping up with technical innovations of ipads in the classrooms and streaming of the athletic programs.
The evening began at 6:oopm with cocktails, gourmet food stations and a 50/50 raffle. Public Defender Diamond Litty was present to pass around THE TOP HAT OF MONEY, for the cause. She was stunning in her bright blue dress. As the evening continued, the silent auction area was the room to be in and pick from a wide variety of options. There was also a LIVE AUCTION, which boasted prizes with a value starting at $1000.00 from a donated membership to the Pelican Yacht Club, to a Personal Chef Expert and Dessert Guru at the Osteen’s home. Allen Osteen is the Associate Publisher of the Indian River magazine. You could also bid on an Offshore Adventure with Captain Scott Crippen. There were many wonderful choices and the party kept on through the night with the Live Auction and dancing. Jennifer Trefelner, Sarah Pride, Diamond Litty and other quests gave us some onsite interviews.
