Lighthouse Christian Academy celebrated its Fourteenth Annual Live and Silent Auction on Saturday, March 14, at Prospect Bay Country Club in Grasonville. In attendance were many community members and school supporters, as well as school family and friends. The theme of the auction was “Are YOU the Next Superhero?,” which spotlighted the superheroes in the school’s midst – its teachers, supporters, leadership, and students. The event raised more than $42,000 for the school.
The Master of Ceremonies was Mr. Matthew McKay, a local business owner and parent of students at LCA. The auctioneer, Mr. Robert Campbell II, hosted the spirited live auction, which included one-of-a-kind student artwork, a PRS guitar autographed by Mr. Paul Reed Smith, a handmade quilt, and unique experiences. Mr. Campbell also hosted the Special Appeal bidding to fund the school’s STEM programs, raising nearly $15,000.
The evening featured live and silent auctions, raffles, and a performance by students who are members of the school’s chapter of the Institute for Cultural Communicators. The students’ skit was an interview process for the “greatest superhero in the LCA Justice League,” written by member Olivia Berry, a 10th-grader at the school. Each student portrayed an LCA staff member and highlighted their most obvious superpowers, to the delight of the guests.
