22 May Party for the Planet 2019!
Huge thank you to Event Co-Chairs Liz Holloway and Dema Tabbalat Kamal for organizing a smashing event and ensuring that the predicted rain miraculously missed Cobham – hitting just north and south of us! An event this size does not get off the ground without a committee and we would like to extend our thanks to: Ayla Yilmaz, Marianne Yrke, Allan Scott, Kimber Fox, Jennifer Kirkham, Isabel, Garces Lopez, Ingrid Campos, Kristin Polman, Morgen Carroll, Susan Coleman, Jurate Chimarios, Dennis Herkt, Jamie Walker!
Special thank yous also go out to our amazing CRG countries who hosted the international food and bar stalls – truly one of the best things about ACS Cobham – showing the full international character of our community in the most delicious way!
Congratulations to the many performers from throughout the school community who performed on our stage – starting with the teacher/staff rock band! The brilliant performances just kept on coming all afternoon.
At this point our Treasurer is busy calculating the final tally of funds raised but looking at the revenues I know we will have a large pot to split between the student chosen charities. The donations are split based on how much volunteer time the students put into the event – setting up on both Saturday and Sunday morning, during the party running games and helping with many tasks, and with cleanup. We couldn’t have run the event without their help and it gives the PSO great pleasure to raise a substantial amount of money for their chosen causes![/vc_column_text]
