Bon Temps!

13 Mar 2011

ON MARCH 5TH, the Agassiz Cooperative Preschool community joined together for an evening of fun, food and fundraising to benefit our new home on the corner of Spring and Summer Streets. The Agassiz Preschool Gala Auction was a Mardi Gras themed extravaganza, hosted by local comedian Jimmy Tingle.

Agassiz’ permanent home, only a few blocks from our previous home of nearly 40 years in Porter Square, Cambridge, was purchased and renovated with an extensive budget raised by current and past families, fiends, neighbors and business leaders.

To raise the additional funds needed to complete the school, we held the Agassiz Preschool Gala Auction on March 5th, 2011. Our goal was to raise the $40,000 needed to pay off our bridge loaned. AND WE DID IT!!!

Our greatest thanks go to Kathy Hart, Sarah Saxe, Heather Thompson-Brenner, and Gillien Todd for producing and managing such a rainmaker. Their leadership, passion and dedication was truly the driving force behind our success.

We at Agassiz give thanks for all our benefactors. In truth Agassiz is a family today and beyond – from our current children to the nearly 40 years of alumni. Thank you for helping Agassiz continue to be a place where kids can fully be themselves while learning and having fun.
