Community Celebrates Pardes at the Cirque du Pardes Gala
January 27, 2020 – Sunday, January 26th was an evening of celebration at the annual Pardes Gala. Chaired by third grade parents Tricia and Phil Beron, this year’s Cirque du Pardes theme at The Clayton House did not disappoint. Bright festival colors and Cirque-like decor, including a stilt walker, contortionist and human hors d’oeuvres table, added to the festivities.
Attendees bid on silent auction items throughout the cocktail hour, including memberships to various places, jewelry, teacher experiences, sports memorabilia and much more. After dining on a delicious dinner, the gift card frenzy and live auction took place. The exciting live auction items ranged from a trip to Mexico, a Diamondbacks batting practice experience, tickets to Jimmy Kimmel Live, half day as Head of School and much more. Most importantly, money raised through the evening provides important funds for the school as it prepares students to be 21st century citizens in the Jewish community and the world.
“What an honor it was for Phil and I to to be part of a great night! The energy and parent participation was amazing. We have an extraordinary community and school family. We are so happy to part of the Pardes family,” exclaimed Tricia Beron as she reflected on the evening.
