Antilles School Holds 'Open Doors' Gala Fundraiser

March 14, 2009 – Antilles School will introduce the Open Doors Gala, an evening where fun and fundraising will go hand in hand, at 6 p.m., on Saturday, April 4. Proceeds from the gala will go to support its financial aid and scholarship program that provides over $1.3 million in annual support to over 50 percent of its student body. These funds make it possible for any qualified student to attend Antilles regardless of an ability to pay the full tuition.
Open Doors Gala will be a fun, upbeat, low-pressure evening that is less structured than most fundraisers. Guests will be able to mix, mingle and dance the night away right at the Mark C. Marin Center on the school's campus. Milo's Kings will play dance music and a buffet feast will allow guests to eat as much or as little as they want whenever they want throughout the night. Guests will also be treated to an unveiling of the Open Doors poster, Don Hebert's photography created exclusively to support Open Doors
Antilles was established in 1950 as one of the first independent schools on St. Thomas. Under the leadership of former headmaster, Mark Marin, the school began its financial aid program that is known today as Open Doors. Today, the school provides toddlers through 12th grade college preparatory education to over 500 students living on St. Thomas and St. John.
At the Open Doors Gala, the doors are open to anyone in the community who wants to support a great cause and have some fun at the same time.
For tickets, call 776-1600, ext. 243 or 224, or e-mail development@antilles.vi. For more information, visit www.antilles.vi.
