Celebrate Providence Event a Spectacular Success

March 22, 2019 by Elaine Rottman

Celebrate Providence! A Seaside Soiree took place March 15 at the Rosewood Miramar Beach. It was a special evening that brought together the Providence School community to celebrate Christian education, honor God and his faithfulness to the school, and raise necessary support for the students and mission. 

From start to finish, the evening was spectacular. Memorable moments included the beautiful reception on the Great Lawn where guests perused silent auction items and enjoyed delicious food and drink while listening to Goodtime Tim and the Faculty Band.

The exquisite Chandelier Ballroom welcomed guests as Dr. Matthew Roy, performing arts director, and the Providence singers opened the evening with a rousing Swahili version of The Doxology. Dr. Brett Wilson, board member, guided the dinner program as our emcee and guests were inspired by Cameron Bleecker, Class of 2020, and his testimony. A new Providence film made its debut and Rob Crawford, current parent, helped us further the mission with his expert auctioneering. 

We are proud to share that more than $200,000 was raised for the students and mission of Providence! 

Celebrate Providence! would not have been possible without the support of our our sponsors and the hard work and dedication of many volunteers, led by event co-chairs Colette Nottage Crafton and Melissa Kuykendall.  See the Celebrate Providence web page for a list of volunteers and sponsors.

There are still some opportunities to participate in the success of the event through Providence Socials. Beginning Monday, April 1, there will be a binder in the front office on each campus with sign-up opportunities for the remaining Social spaces. Please consider signing up and supporting the school through your participation in one or more of these fun events.
