On behalf of the Worcester County Education Foundation (WCEF), we would like to thank everyone that helped make our third annual gala a huge success.

On Friday, Nov. 1, we celebrated in true classic Hollywood style.

Our VIP sponsors enjoyed a fabulous four-course dinner prepared by Seacrets followed by an amazing signature dessert prepared by Chef Phillip Cropper and the Worcester Technical High School Culinary Arts Program.

The generosity of our sponsors allowed over 200 tickets to be distributed to Worcester County educators and staff, as a thank you for all they do, to attend the Classic Hollywood Party in Morley Hall.

All of our guests walked the red carpet, had pictures taken by the paparazzi and took their chance at winning some amazing silent auction and raffle items assembled by each of our Worcester County schools.

Everyone filled the dance floor and enjoyed small bites donated by area restaurants – Shenanigan’s Irish Pub, Sunset Grille, Baked Dessert Café & Gallery, Seacrets, Bull on the Beach and Chef Phillip Cropper/Worcester Technical High School Culinary Arts Program.

We want to recognize this year’s Platinum sponsors: Atlantic General Hospital; Peninsula Regional Medical Center; and Oak Contracting, LLC and this year’s Gold sponsors: Becker Morgan Group; Bank of Ocean City; Taylor Bank and Ropewalk for their generous support.

We are also very grateful to our many Silver, Bronze and in-kind sponsors and to all of those that made a financial commitment to WCEF that evening.

The event would not have been possible without the dedication of my event committee: Hope Palmer, Dawn Peterson, Tara Miller, Deb Travers and Sue Carpenter, many volunteers and the amazing Seacrets staff.

By supporting our efforts to provide our children, from kindergarten through graduation, with the appropriate digital device, we are helping to equip them with the necessary tools with which to practice and learn the digital skills required to compete for the jobs of tomorrow.

The WCEF is committed to establishing a proactive partnership between the community and the public school system by linking community resources with the educational needs of its students to prepare them to succeed, and we are very appreciative of the continued support.

On behalf of all the children who will be served over the years by the community’s support of WCEF, we extend our heartfelt thanks for your generosity and kindness. We hope even more members of the community will join us next year for this fun filled night!
