It was a lovely evening where Bigelow parents, guardians, friends, teachers and staff munched on great food, sipped the Hawaiian Sunrise, bid on great items and most importantly, reconnected with old friends and met new ones. Check out some pictures.
The event raised over $14,000, which will go towards curriculum-enriching programs such as the Creative Arts and Sciences, student scholarships, school grounds upkeep, classroom supplies, as well as gym and technology items not covered by the regular school budget.
