A piece taking shape at Kaleidoscope

The Kaleidoscope School of Arts and Science Art Piece Committee sends heartfelt thanks to the sponsors, donors and volunteers who made the Fiesta in February a phenomenal success. Your generous contributions were essential in meeting the goal of moving on to the exciting second phase of the project: the much-anticipated “call to artists”!

Thank you to all who attended the Fiesta and helped make it not only a successful fundraiser, but a fun and memorable family event!

While a few of our generous donors have chosen to remain anonymous, we would like to acknowledge some of the businesses and individuals who came together to bring this art project fundraiser to reality. Thanks to Sportsman’s Warehouse for hosting the Pick Your Prize Raffle and Archery Shoot. Dan Pascucci, MC extraordinaire, entertained all, with help from Sara Boersma and Friends. The delicious homemade enchilada dinner was prepared by Janice Villegas, Andy Villegas and Stacey Weeks, with kitchen help from Pam Witte and Casey DeSienna; Peterkin Distributors, Wal-Mart, Three Bears and Acapulco in Kenai were helpful not only with donations of food, but also paper and plastic goods. Thank you to McDonald’s for providing their kid-favorite orange drink, and to Jennifer Moss for her work on the amazing fiesta posters.

Thanks go to KSAS Principal, Robin Dahlman, for the work she put into figuring out logistics for this event, as well as for her enthusiastic support. Thank you to all the staff at Kaleidoscope, with special thanks to Gordon Merrill, Maria Collier, Joy Harper, Barb Soderstrom, Linda Hibberd, Misty Hamilton and Elaine Larsen for their help at and prior to the event.

Other volunteers include Jennifer Moss, Meg Mueller, Marcus Mueller, Tammy Matturro, Rina Carson, Laura Goldsby, Jen Satathite, Tonja Whitney, Lindsey Reese, Loren Reese, Cellina Pelletier, Terrah Amend, Jessi Wilshusen, Dana McDonald, Jeff McDonald, Koleen Wittmer, Wendy Gruber, Jessica Bookey, Debbie Shaginoff, Jamie Larsen and Savala Kisena; thank you for being there!
