TMI Episcopal’s annual gala netted $165,250 to benefit TMI student programs. More than 350 guests attended Stars 2018: Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas, held April 7 at the Venues at Valero.
With longtime WOAI anchor Leslie Bohl as MC, the evening featured fine dining, live and silent auctions, casino games and live
entertainment, including Elvis tribute artist Michael McMullen.
Thanks to volunteers and sponsors, the annual event is TMI’s premier fundraiser. Event co-chairs were TMI parents Lisa and Charles Harthan, with a committee including Lisa Arcuri, Pam and Alex Burgos, Tracy Feik, Liz Owen and Karrie and Paul Sherman.
“What an honor it was to chair Stars 2018!,” said Lisa Harthan. “Working alongside top notch TMI staff, combined with amazing TMI parent volunteers, made it a fun experience. Thank you to all who generously supported the silent auction and live auction. Those funds will go towards enriching TMI for our students and faculty. We look forward to next year!”
Stars 2019 will be held April 6 and will return to the TMI campus as part of the school’s celebration of its 125 th anniversary.
