The Taft Night Out Fundraiser is back for 2018 and available to anyone in the Taft Community for a night of dancing, auctioning, and dining.

The Taft Night Out Fundraiser is a chance for Taft parents, teachers, and staff over the age of 21 to mingle and become more friendly with the people in their community. The fundraiser will take place on Friday, Feb. 23rd from 6 p.m to 11 p.m at Cafe Biagio.

The event includes silent auction that offers many prizes to be won, food, cash bar, and entertainment. The entertainment for the evening is live music provided by the Second Hand Soul Band.

Karen Devine, a counselor at Taft with a few other staff came up with the idea for an event last year held at around the same time as this years event. Some of the many benefits of the event is that Taft community, family and staff have fun way to mingle among one another and raise money for the school all at the same time.Taft Night Out continued into this year it the hopes of raising more money than last year, 15,000 dollars.

“This event is a great chance for parents to connect with other parents as well as the staff. It is also a chance to  have fun together and so the parents can see what initiatives that Taft is trying to bring about with a little extra money. This is a great chance with all of the budget cuts happening to make a little more money for teams and departments,” said Devine.

To buy tickets for the Taft Night Out Fundraiser one can go on the Taft website and use the link to sign up and buy a ticket. Tickets can also be purchased in Taft’s main office. Tickets purchased before noon Feb. 23rd are only 40 dollars, but any tickets purchased at the door will be 45 dollars. If you’d like to sign up to be a volunteer or sponsor for the event you can also sign up using the link on the Taft website.

The silent auction will include about 60 items such as: VIP front row seats to 8th grade and high school graduation, VIP Prom and Graduation Packages, a Pom Pizza Party, All-You-Can-Eat-Ice-Cream Party at the Chocolate Shop, tickets to Chicago team’s games, and more!

Proceeds from the event, silent auction, and cash bar will go towards projects selected by Taft teachers such as academics and extracurricular programs.Register and come out!
