Vail Daily letter: Thanks for support
Eagle Valley High School’s Project Graduation organizing committee would like to thank all of our wonderful students, volunteers and financial supporters. Our event was a tremendous success this year because of our generous community. Our organization raised just under $22,000 in cash donations and another $3,500 in item donations from many local small businesses and individuals. The generosity of our community is astounding.
We had 110 of the approximately 140 graduating seniors join us for our all night lock-in event at the Gypsum Recreation Center where the kids were treated to a DJ, mechanical bull, inflatable joust, hypnotist and magic show, swimming, gymnastics, casino games, photo booth, Alpine Bank Cash Cube, Colorado State Patrol Distracted Driving Simulator, tons of food and almost $7,700 in prizes! Each student that attended the event left with a prize; everything from TVs, laptops, iPads and tons of other stuff were handed out to our seniors. The event was so much fun we didn’t have a single kid check out before the 5 a.m. release time.
