Over 200 attend Carlisle School fundraiser

Over two hundred guests enjoyed an evening of fine food, good company and dancing at the Carlisle Education Foundation's Dinner Dance and Auction on November 2. The fundraiser's theme was James Bond-esque, titled "For Your School Only."

While sipping shaken (not stirred) martinis, patrons competed over silent auction items and later good-naturedly vied for special offerings such as trips or sports tickets in the live auction. The money raised will be used to fund grants for the Carlisle School. In conjunction with the need for upgrading technology at the school, diners were offered a chance to "purchase" an item such as a printer or MAC laptop by choosing a card from the tabletop wishing trees. The evening closed with dancing accompanied by the Love Dogs.
