Peachtree Academy would like to thank the faculty, staff, parents, and sponsors who attended and supported the Annual Gala Saturday, May 2 at the Covington Private School campus. It was a great success and we couldn’t have done it without your support!

Highlights of the evening included a live broadcast of the Kentucky Derby, a delicious Derby-themed dinner, live and silent auctions of donated gift baskets from local business and student artwork, a $2,500 Reverse Raffle, prizes and dancing throughout the night.

A cocktail hour was hosted in Panther Plaza complete with passed hors d’oeuvres, mint juleps, and a Kentucky Derby-style photo opportunity made possible by the Dunning family’s horse and Roger Cannon’s photography. Live Event Solutions provided the lighting, stage décor, and broadcasting equipment and Roger’s Entertainment, LLC. provided music and entertainment throughout the evening.

Funds raised through the Gala will benefit Peachtree Academy’s capital building campaign to complete the Covington campus’s football field, begin expansion at the Conyers campus, playground upgrades for both Early Childhood Learning Centers, funding for the fine arts program, and support to the student scholarship fund.

In addition to the Annual Gala scheduled for Spring 2016, Peachtree Academy plans to continue raising funds with a community-wide fundraising event in Fall 2015. Details for both events are forthcoming.
