Boots & Bling, the Big Event 2022, brought country-western flair to the Middle School on April 30 with live music, line dancing, delicious food and drinks, a mechanical bull and an outstanding fundraising effort that will make a difference for kids right away!
Our Parent-Faculty Association volunteers worked tirelessly to ensure everyone had a wonderful time at this party with a purpose!
Why is the Big Event so important?
A Corbett Prep tradition, the Big Event features live and silent auctions, dinner, dancing and – most importantly – "friend-raising, fun-raising and fund-raising!"
Parents and friends of Corbett Prep enjoy a night out while supporting a first-class education for Corbett Prep students. The Parent-Faculty Association (PFA) annually raises more than $100,000 at the Big Event, Corbett Prep's largest fundraiser of the year! These funds helped to support our outstanding student programs and improve our classrooms and the student experience.
This year, the money raised will help us make over our fields, adding 8,500 square feet of synthetic turf to the elementary play field. The Middle School field – our center for sports and beloved traditions such as Field Day, the Student-Faculty Challenge, Powder Puff and more – will receive Bermuda grass, new fencing, new irrigation, soccer goals and dugout.
It will also support transportation, allowing us to upgrade two of our buses so we can provide bus service and field trip transportation.
Thank you to everyone who helped organize the Big Event, the sponsors who made it possible and the hundreds of guests who came out to celebrate the Corbett Prep community!
