TKA Gift-Gathering Party Supports Mane Event

The King’s Academy held a fall gift-gathering party Wednesday, Nov. 7 at the home of TKA parents Andrea and Ray Titus to support the school’s annual dinner and auction.

More than 30 guests gathered to support the auction by brining either an item to be used for the silent auction or a cash donation. Guests were treated to a wonderful luncheon and time of fellowship. Guests also learned how to create a beautiful fall centerpiece from Gloria Loveland, wife of TKA President Jeff Loveland. Items collected for the silent auction included jewelry, home accessories, gift certificates, family entertainment items, and weekend get-a-ways as well as more than $2,000 in sponsorship.

TKA’s 12th annual Mane Event auction will be held March 2 at the PGA National Resort. This year’s theme is “Havana Nights” and promises to be an exciting night filled with the rich culture and music of Cuba. The planning team, under the leadership of co-chairs Denise Meers and Teddy Walker and theme consultants Irelys Pattee and Cristina Rodriguez, is focused on creating a fun-filled evening with spectacular auction items, delicious food, and great entertainment.

Proceeds from the Mane Event benefit the King’s Academy annual fund campaign, which plays a vital part in the success of carrying out the school’s mission of “graduating Christian leaders who seek to impact their world for the King of kings through academic excellence and spiritual vitality.” This annual event has raised more than $2.25 million over its 11-year history.
