SJE's Annual 'Very Important Eagle' Party Set for May 18th
TAMPA -- As we move into the final days of a most unprecedented school year, it is our great honor to recognize and celebrate our "VIE donors" (Very Important Eagles) at our annual VIE Party, on Tuesday, May 18th. VIE guests will enjoy an evening of celebration and revelry with their peers, our Head of School, and members of our Board of Trustees and Administration.
Hosted at the Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the celebration's exclusive guest list includes our Platinum, Golden, Head of School, and Crimson Circle of Excellence (COE)-level donors.
The country club is one of South Tampa’s finest and tradition-rich venues, and it provides the perfect blend of indoor and outdoor space to mingle and connect with fellow COE members, who will be the first to hear the positive impact their Eagles Fund giving has had on the school.
"Our cautious and COVID-careful approach to gatherings has been successful thus far," said Carrie Underwood, associate director of advancement. "We're thrilled to be able to gather in person and personally thank the people who have gone above and beyond in support of our school."
Each year parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and partners of our community demonstrate their commitment to our school through their generous gifts to the Eagles Fund.
"The outpouring of philanthropic support this school year has been monumental," said Hugh Jebson, head of school. "It's a resounding endorsement of our school's mission to create a transformative educational experience for every child. We are extremely grateful to everyone who supports our Eagles Fund each school year, and look forward to celebrating you for your key role in our annual giving accomplishments."
