More than 500 people turned out in support of Laurel School for its 11th annual Gator Bash entitled “For the Love of Laurel.”

Presented at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown, the evening featured a live and silent auction, a $10,000 tuition raffle and a Call to the Heart, which raised money for the creation of the Laurel School Innovation Fund.

Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception, dinner and entertainment provided by Laurel School’s musical groups, including the choir, Bad in Plaid and the cast of the “Little Shops of Horrors.”

Presenting sponsor was McGowan Insurance. Event co-chairs were Amy Hatem, Cathy Richer, Katerina MacGregor and Susan Kramer, who worked with a large group of volunteers. This year’s event raised more than $200,000.

The Laurel School Innovation Fund will support Laurel’s Center for Research on Girls, as well as other programming. The fund will align with the schools’ new five-year strategic roadmap and provide some of the necessary resources to fund innovative education.

A private school for girls founded in 1896, Laurel School has two campuses, the Lyman campus in Shaker Heights and the Butler campus in Russell Township. Laurel is a nationally recognized college preparatory school with an enrollment of more than 600 students. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY SUE REID
