A Night of Masquerade for Lighthouse Christian Academy

UntitledA Night of Masquerade for LCA

Lighthouse Christian Academy presents “A Night of Masquerade”, its 13th Annual Live and Silent Auction on Saturday, April 26, from 6 to 9:30 PM at the Prospect Bay Country Club in Grasonville.  The evening will include a dinner buffet, photo booth fun, games for fabulous prizes and of course live and silent auction excitement.

The Live Auction will include a variety of items and packages such as: a Thai Dinner for 10 cooked in your home, four Disney one-day hopper passes, a fishing excursion, a waterfront home party package, unique items made by the LCA classes, and much more.  The silent auction will include packages for the women, men, and kids.

A major item we are featuring this year is a personalized guitar given to us by none other than Garth Brooks.  Mr. Brooks will sign the guitar with the winner’s requested text before sending it.

How did LCA secure such an amazing auction item?  One of the LCA parents, Mrs. Jodie Gray, volunteers for the production of the Kennedy Center Honors every year.  This time she was assigned to host Garth Brooks for the weekend.  This proved to be an honor and an amazing time getting to know this country music icon.  Mr. Brooks was very interested in learning about the Classical education model at LCA and about life on the Eastern Shore.

At the end of the weekend, he hugged her and said, “you let me know if there’s anything that I can ever do for you.”  Honors volunteers are not permitted to ask for anything of their guests, but since he opened the door, she said that an item for the Annual Auction would be wonderful.  Mrs. Gray was thrilled with the unexpected offer of a personalized guitar, which was given specifically “because it was for a school”.  In addition, Mr. Brooks said, “we’ll send a signed copy of Miss Yearwood’s cookbook, too.”  He always refers to his wife as Miss Yearwood.  The signed cookbook will be offered at the auction as a separate item for bid.

This event is open to the public. Tickets in advance are $40 and will be $45 at the door. For more information or to reserve tickets or sponsorship, visit https://lcamd.ejoinme.org/Auction2014 or email the PTO at pto@lcacademy.org.

Prospect Bay’s Buddy Up for Bosom Buddies Golf Tournament Kicks off Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Ten years ago, a group of Prospect Bay women dedicated to making a difference in breast cancer prevention began what has become an annual and highly anticipated event, the Rally for the Cure Golf Tournament. This year the group decided to “Keep it Local” and partnered with Bosom Buddies Charities to host the Buddy Up for Bosom Buddies Golf Tournament on September 14, 2012, as a kick-off to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Working together, the Prospect Bay group and the Bosom Buddies raised over $10,000 to help improve the breast cancer survival rates in Queen Anne’s County.

The Buddy up for Bosom Buddies Golf Tournament, held with the beautiful backdrop of Prospect Bay Country Club, brought together 100 golf enthusiasts and supporters of the cause so dear to the hearts of both groups of women. In addition to the participants, 40 local businesses sponsored golf holes and 95 additional businesses and supporters donated items for the two auctions held during the luncheon that took place in a packed Clubhouse. “We are so grateful to the ladies of Prospect Bay and their many friends for their support of Bosom Buddies Charities,” said Bosom Buddies Golf Tournament Chair Linda Bailey. “Bosom Buddies thanks Linda Bailey and Karen White, both Prospect Bay residents and supporters of Bosom Buddies, for all their hard work and dedication to our cause,” said Bosom Buddies Board Chair Biana Arentz, whose mother is a breast cancer survivor.

Bosom Buddies has been a force for good in the community since its inception in 2006. The group’s mission of promoting breast cancer awareness, encouraging early detection, supporting treatment, and celebrating healing, keeps them fully committed to activities that transform those words into tangible benefits for Queen Anne’s County residents. Bosom Buddies has raised over $1 million in five short years and funnels the proceeds from all fundraising events back into the community. The organization has donated the digital mammography equipment at the Kent Island Breast Center, funded a highly successful Survivor Retreat last spring, and supports a nurse navigator to help guide breast cancer patients through complex medical systems and negotiate through the barriers to care along the continuum. This year’s Taste of the Island Ball—their major fundraiser—will be held January 19, 2013.

Bosom Buddies Charities encourages all women to discuss with their physicians the appropriate mammography guidelines for their particular medical history, and encourages all women over 40 to have their annual mammogram during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And because our focus is local, we especially urge all Queen Anne’s County residents to visit our website, www.bosombuddiescharities.org, to learn more about Bosom Buddies Charities and how we may help each other make our community a healthier one.

Our rally planning committee worked since April to ensure the success of this tournament. Thank you to Sue Bray, Dot Dernoga, Marian Dipboye, Karen Dooley, Caryn Taublib, Pam Timony, Mary Watko, Karen White, Liz Young, and Deb Zussman for their tireless efforts.
