On Friday, November 20th families turned out at the Cowley Hall to help raise funds for the 2016 Livingstone School Grad Class. The students held a very successful Italian Night spaghetti supper along with the popular silent auction tables. One family donated a beautiful Lazy Susan that was carved years ago by Mr. Gary Hackler. As always the highlight of the evening was Bob Westrop helping the grad students auction their pies and cakes off to the highest bidder.

Mr. Chad Jensen and Mrs. Mary Krizan walked away with their favorite picks of the night and the Nobles family very generously purchased four cakes. Mrs. Bonnie Kaack, the school’s librarian, won the first door prize draw of a beautiful Christmas Tree pot. This is the only fundraiser the Livingstone School Grad Class does to raise funds for graduation and it is all made possible by the support of their family and friends. A big thank you to all who attended and gave a helping hand.

 Special thanks to Ms. Verbaas and Mr. Jensen for coordinating the event.

Over $8000 was raised during the evening which will help offset expenses of the Graduation 2016 celebration on May 6, 2016.
