The Premiere: Forever in Blue Jeans
This year’s event, “Forever in Blue Jeans” was held on February 21, 2015 at Via Vecchia Winery.The event raised more than $115,000 for fearless learning at The Wellington School.
A live auction, facilitated by Chris Davis from Auction House, provided extra excitement to the festivities with participants rapidly bidding on luxury vacation getaways and local fine dining experiences. Other opportunities for donations included a wine raffle and Fund A Need items, including Classrooms of the Future and financial aid awards. Also, leading up to the event, a silent auction was open for bidding on more than 245 items with all proceeds going to The Wellington School. Live entertainment provided by the band Lt. Dan’s New Legs during the second half of the evening encouraged partygoers to head out on the dance floor and show off their moves, forever fun and forever in blue jeans.
Thank you to The Premiere co-chairs this year, Alyson Thompson and Jen Thompson, and their amazing committee members for making the night truly remarkable in every way.
