TKA Mane Event Raises More Than $310,000

On March 5, the King’s Academy hosted another successful Mane Event Dinner & Auction: Nautical Nights at Admirals Cove.

The event raised more than $310,000, led by co-chairs Ellen Hobbs and Diane Hanlon, along with silent auction chair Holly Boswell. The nautical evening was filled with fun and bidding, as families and friends showed their support in silent and live auctions. Some items included a tricked-out golf cart from Southeast Custom Carts, a 2016 Honda Accord from Braman Honda and Adele Live tickets. This year’s Call to the Heart project raised $60,000 for need-based financial assistance. A wrap-up luncheon was held at Seasons 52 to celebrate the committee’s accomplishments.

“We have been touched by the generosity of so many sponsors and supporters along the way,” Hobbs said. “The King’s Academy brings out the best in our children, and the Mane Event was an opportunity to shine together as a school family to honor our hard-working children.”

All proceeds support TKA’s Annual Fund, including financial assistance, co-curricular programming, faculty development, facility improvements and technology advancements.

Special thanks to presenting sponsors Insurance Office of America, Regal Paint Centers, Landscaping Lighting Designs, Chuck and Diane Hanlon, Chuck and Ellen Hobbs, and Joe and Ashley Maguire, along with platinum sponsors Braman Honda and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
