Bloomfield Hills Schools Celebration

Wabeek Country Club was a good choice for the third annual Bloomfield Hills Schools Foundation fundraiser which attracted 220 ($150, $250) school district supporters. Alum-to-be-honored, Las Vegas-based magician Rick Lax, BHS 2000, chatted easily with the early-arriving VIP guests, including teachers Pat Clees, David Reed and Bob Ambrose whom he would later praise in his acceptance speech.

Casino games (with Lax doing a stint as a dealer), a silent auction and strolling dinner preceded the program emceed by auctioneer Gary Mark. Program highlights included three testimonials (by student Emelia Johnston, teacher Rachel Matz and Way Elementary principal Adam Scher) about the educational value of their foundation grants, a salute to Rob Glass (in the form of a named foundation to honor outstanding teachers) for his Michigan Superintendent of the Year honor, and the live auction.
