More than 150 Mountain Avenue Elementary supporters took flight on May 10 to attend the first MACK (Mountain Avenue is Committed to Kids) Night International. The event was a primary fundraiser for the school and organizers were anxious to see how the bottom line would end up.
The results are in and MACK International raised nearly $17,000 to benefit the school.
This was the 16th annual parent’s night out fundraiser, but the first time it was held on the school’s campus.
In the past, the event was held at local restaurants and country clubs, but MACK president Greg Grande and his board decided to bring the event home, back to the school they all work so hard to support.
“I thought it was a fun and festive night,” said Principal Rebeca Witt. “It was wonderful to see all the parents come together to support their school.”
