Eyer Students Rocked Their way to $17,000 for Justin's House
“TREMENDOUS is the only word to describe what happened last night! Over $17,000 in donations for Justin's House was raised by a terrific group of 11, 12 and 13 year old people that were so well-behaved and fun that I still have a smile on my face only 6 hours after leaving Eyer.” Mrs. Beth Witte, Faculty Co-Coordinator.
As a parent, I can tell you that without a doubt our faculty coordinators of this event, Kelsey Torpey and Beth Witte, are tremendous as well. They both continuously work so hard to support our kids and to show them that giving back and helping others can be fun.They both teach by example of the responsibilities, joys, and fulfillment that come from community service, and of how rewarding hard work and team work can be.They are truly a gift to our students and our Eyer Community. Eyer and our kids are lucky to have them! Thank you ladies, for all that you do!
Local businesses Leading Edge Martial Arts, DJ Freddie Frederic and Emmaus Yoga generously donated their time and talents throughout the night. The kids enjoyed all that they had to offer and their generosity made the night even more special and fun! A special thank you to Bear Creek Mountain Resort & Conference Center for the amazingly generous donation of 25 passes to use as prizes.
“This year, 333 kids rocked their way into the Eyer history books. Their behavior and attitudes were fantastic. Thanks to all of them. Parents, faculty, staff and administration, whether you cooked pasta, counted money, donated crafts, chaperoned, shopped, whatever you did to be a part of the outcome, thanks. The 2013 Eyer Rock-a-thon was truly a HUGE success and reflects the ‘Eyer Way’.” - Mrs. Witte.
