NORTH TUSTIN, Calif., April 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Prentice School, a private, nonprofit, nonpublic (NPS) academic school, which offers unparalleled learning experiences to bright students with learning differences, has announced that the school’s recent fundraising gala to celebrate its 30th anniversary has raised over $260,000. Centered on the theme Education Reimagined, the gala gathered supporters, such as Black Pearl sponsors Experian and Laura Khouri and Michael K. Hayde, and many other sponsors, who attended to raise both funds and awareness for the Tustin-based school.
The gala brought the community together to hear how The Prentice School has transformed the lives of over 5,000 students with learning differences such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, ADHD, anxiety, and visual processing and executive function disorders.
“The Prentice school is doing important work in our community by helping our students learn and grow despite their learning differences. The school’s success at meeting the students’ needs was evident at our fundraising gala as demonstrated by the strong show of support,” said Steven Wagner, group president of marketing services at Experian and Prentice School parent, who also participated as the night’s keynote speaker.
The Education Reimagined theme worked well with the crowd of 250 who saw and heard firsthand how Prentice is changing the lives of its students and giving them the tools that traditional learning institutions are unable to provide.
Alicia Maciel, Executive Director of The Prentice School says, "I am very proud of how the Prentice community came together to celebrate the impact Prentice has made throughout the years for so many students with learning differences. We appreciate the generous support from our sponsors, parents, teachers and staff toward making our event so successful. We feel stronger than ever and well positioned to keep changing lives for many more years to come."
Corinne Conklin, Director of Events and Donor Relations for The Prentice School who spearheaded the gala event added, “Having been engaged and active with The Prentice School for more than 12 years, I was very impressed to witness the continued engagement of our visionary founding members, alumni students and their parents, current parents, and members of the community, including representatives from Experian, Gucci South Coast Plaza, and Volcom, to name a few. As a result of everyone coming together for our 30 year celebration, we raised a record amount.”
Conklin also happily added that over $100,000 of the proceeds raised will go to the school’s Scholarship Fund to assist students in financial need.
