“If You Believe in Magic” Crossroads School Gala Celebrates Students Event raises over $55,000 to educate more exceptional children

HOUSTON (March 8, 2011) – Crossroads School Inc. celebrated students’ success and 34 years of educating exceptional children at its annual gala, “If You Believe in Magic.” The record-breaking event held on Saturday, March 5, at The Houstonian Hotel and Spa, raised over $55,000, and helps to further our mission of being able to provide a successful school experience for more children with learning differences. KPRC-2 anchor Rachel McNeill served as emcee.

Over 250 guests enjoyed the ambiance and festivities. Excitement and enchantment filled the air, opening with a cocktail hour, and then an amazing three course dinner, which included expertly prepared lamb chops and a salmon entrée. Dinner was followed by the popular dessert auction. This year, guests were entertained by the jazzy sounds of the Kristine Mills Band. A fast-paced live auction was the evening’s finale, featuring the magic of a 3D TV and Blu Ray Player, Napa Valley Get Away, and the Capital Grille’s exclusive Chef’s Table with Seattle Seahawks’ NFL Running Back, Javarris Williams. Proceeds will enable Crossroads to educate more exceptional students.

Crossroads promotes an “outside-the-box” teaching philosophy, which includes multi-level individualized curriculum, a nurturing environment, and classes of eight or fewer students per teacher. The result, K-10th graders can achieve their full academic potential.

“I’m proud of our students, and honored to be a part of their lives,” says Gila Arnoni, Ph.D., director of Crossroads School. “It’s so rewarding to know that Crossroads offers hope and makes a difference in the lives of our children, and their families.”

Guests received an elegantly wrapped package of blank note cards. Each card featured a unique design created by a Crossroads student.
