The King’s Academy’s annual Mane Event Dinner & Auction “A Night in the City” raised more than $285,000 for the school’s 2016-17 Annual Fund.
Following a large silent auction and dinner held at the Kravis Center, comedian Ted Cunningham warmed up the crowd with family-focused humor before the live auction. The trips at the live auction included packages to see the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Mets, island get-a-ways to the Bahamas, and travel packages around the world.
