Maple Dale-Indian Hill Foundation Bash 2010

March 1, 2010

MAPLE DALE INDIAN HILL EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION

SLATES “BACK TO THE '80s” BENEFIT BASH MARCH 13

 

The Maple Dale Indian Hill Educational Foundation is asking parents, teachers and the district community to go “Back to the '80s” at its Ninth Annual MDIH Benefit Bash on Saturday, March 13, 2010 at Milwaukee Youth Arts Center.

 

“Many of our parents came of age during the 1980s,” said Bash co-chair Steve Arenzon of Bayside. “It wasn’t too hard to come up with the theme – most of our committee members joked they still had genuine artifacts from the '80s still hanging in their closets!” Arenzon, who co-chairs the Bash with Dave Eurich of Bayside, added that ‘80s attire is strongly encouraged for the guests.

 

Since its inception the MDIH Benefit Bash has raised over $140,000 for the schools. A portion of the proceeds from this year’s Bash will help fund the acquisition of more technology at both schools. Additionally, funds raised support the foundation’s Mini-Grant program, an innovative program which enables teachers to enrich the curriculum with creative and inventive educational opportunities.

 

“This event is a fantastic opportunity to get together and have fun” Arenzon said, “while emphasizing the vitality of our entire school community.”

 

A committee of nearly three dozen parents and teachers has been planning this year’s Bash since October. The evening will feature a lively cocktail hour with beer and soda donated by Point

 

Brewery and wine donated by Trader Joe’s. DJ services with an awesomely 80’s sound will be provided by The Party Company.

 

A silent auction, featuring items such as an automated massage table from Relax The Back, a Harley-Davidson men’s leather jacket, and an on-air ESPN Radio experience with Steve “The Homer” True, will keep guests bidding for our schools. Food for the evening is catered by Saz’s Catering.

 

Guests may also peruse and bid on unique artwork created by students from each grade at Indian Hill and Maple Dale, as well as special experiential items donated by teachers at both schools.

 

“The Maple Dale Indian Hill Educational Foundation is rejuvenated by the outpouring of support for this event from the parent and teacher volunteers,” said Foundation President Sharon Shapiro of Bayside. “Every year, the Bash is bigger and better – and this year will be our best yet.”

 

The cost for the Benefit Bash is $40 per person. Event sponsorships at the “Footloose” ($100), “Breakfast Club” ($250) and “Top Gun” ($500) levels all include program recognition, while “Breakfast Club” and “Top Gun” sponsorships include two or four tickets, respectively, to the bash. To receive an invitation or to make a donation of cash or an auction item, please call David Eurich at 414-732-4076.
