TKA Gift Gathering Party Supports Annual Dinner

On Nov. 12, more than 60 ladies gathered at the Old Palm Clubhouse in Palm Beach Gardens for the King’s Academy’s fall gift gathering party. The event was hosted by Ellen Hobbs in support of TKA’s 2015 Mane Event Dinner & Auction.

Guests were treated to a wonderful buffet lunch and were offered individual makeup consultations with Fonda Lee of the Fonda Lee Beauty Bar & Event Boutique. Guests showed their support for the auction by bringing either an item to be used for the silent auction’s gourmet cooking category or a cash donation.

TKA’s 14th annual Mane Event Dinner & Auction will be held on Feb. 28 at the Mirasol Country Club. This year’s theme is “Denim & Diamonds.”

The event, under the leadership of auction chairs Michelle Collier, Lisa Gerardi and Dana Wilkerson, will be a spectacular evening. The planning team is focused on creating a fun-filled evening with impressive auction items, delicious food and great entertainment.

Proceeds from the Mane Event benefit TKA’s 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 $3 million over its 13-year history. The King’s Academy is a nationally recognized private Christian school. For more info., visit
