LOEF Presents the "Great Gatsby Gala and Live Auction
March 7, 2020
You are invited to our annual LOEF Gala and Live Auction -- the best party of the year! Like every year, we expect this year to be a blast! This year, we are taking it to the next level with a GREAT GATSBY theme. It’s going to be a RIP-ROARING Time! This is not only a fantastic, fun community night, giving adults a chance to enjoy time having fun with other parents, teachers and staff, but it's also one of the most important fundraisers we have each year. At Live Oak, we rely on the Ed Fund through parent donations to fund the music, art, science, technology and library staff and various other programs. Ed Fund continues to pay 100% of paraprofessionals salaries. These paras work in your child's classroom and help keep teacher-student ratios down. Join us for a fun evening and support Live Oak!  

FREE CHILDCARE! The Growing Room, proud sponsor of the LOEF Live Auction and Gala, will provide FREE childcare during the Gala and Live Auction with proof of ticket purchase. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please contact The Growing Room for details.

Please note: Early Bird Pricing for Gala until February 12!
