Brooks-DeBartolo Hosts Annual Gala
The school’s fund-raiser will take place March 31.
Brooks DeBartolo Collegiate High School’s Parent Advisory Council (PAC) will host the Phoenix Carnivale fund-raiser gala on March 31, 7:30-11 p.m. in the school’s multi-purpose room.
WTSP News Channel 10 anchor Ginger Gadsden will serve as the master of ceremonies for the night.
“Our PAC has helped purchase needed school supplies and other items to ensure our students can stay focused on their education and preparing to compete academically at the next level,” said parent and PAC President Martha Stein.
The PAC sponsors an annual fund-raising event to ensure students have the right educational tools to best prepare them for the college transition. Last year, PAC funds helped purchase Amazon Kindle e-Readers for the students.
Founded by former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Derrick Brooks, the school has excelled in helping students advance to the next level of education following their high school years. Brooks-DeBartolo is an A-rated Hillsborough County public charter high school, designed to prepare students for postsecondary success in a small, safe learning environment.
The upscale gala will feature live and silent auctions, entertainment and food. Parents and guardians of current students, incoming students for the upcoming academic school year, and community and business partners are welcome to attend. Ticket prices are $60. The PAC is currently accepting donated items to be auctioned during the event.
