Our Spectacular King's P&F Ball
"Wow" was the word most often used to describe this year's King's P&F Ball. From the spectacularly-transformed Sea World ballroom and the glamourously-dressed guests, to the thousands raised for missions and the dazzling entertainment - Saturday, 30 April, was definitely a night to remember! This was our third King's P&F Ball created for parents and staff by our Reedy Creek P&F Association, whose main mission is to 'friendraise' by building a solid and supportive foundation within our school community, based on friendship and connection.
This annual event provides the chance for our parents to enjoy a fun night out together and help fundraise for our High School Mission Trips, and this year the Ball successfully raised $5,000 for Missions through a Silent Auction and lucky draw ticket sales. Our major prize was an all-inclusive trip for two to Fiji for five nights, and the well-deserving winner was the wonderful Mrs Karen Baker, who cares for our Prep students every day as an Education Assistant.
Thanks to our 2022 P&F Ball Sponsors
We want to give special recognition to our major sponsor and King's mum, Megan Cranitch - from One Percent Property Sales, and to our other three generous sponsors Sarena Taylor, from Travel Managers Australia, Tony Petschy, from Workforce Extensions Brisbane CBD, and Mark Osmond, from Hub Commercial. Thanks to the many businesses and families who donated such wonderful prizes toward our Silent Auction. We also want to thank our parents and staff who attended this event - for donating toward our fundraising on the night, for bringing so much joy and for making this event such a huge success.
Our biggest thanks must go to King's P&F Association, and especially to our P&F President, Liza Wright, whose vision, passion, time and energy in leading the team and preparing this event, made this spectacular night possible. The team are already back in preparation mode for our next P&F Ball and they encourage King's parents to keep an eye out on the P&F Facebook page to register for 2023. They are also planning some other exciting events for later this year and will share more on those soon.
