ABOUT THIS YEAR’S EVENT
The 2016 Winner’s Choice Gala was held November 12, 2016, at the Boise Centre. This year’s winners of a new automobile from Mountain Home Auto Ranch were Rod and Julie Gramer. Rod is a BK Alum from the Class of 1971!
Our theme was “A Diamond Knight”, symbolizing the excellence, quality, and value of Bishop Kelly and its student. In addition to the car drawing, there was a drawing for a beautiful diamond necklace, generously donated by Simmons Fine Jewelry. The diamond was won by Rodney Reider. The Golden Ticket Raffle drawing was also held, and the prize was either $5,000 in tuition anywhere OR one of the live auction items. The winners, John and Joan Carley, selected dinner for 10 at Chandlers, and donated that gift back to the faculty. We’ll have fun deciding who gets to do that!
The Order of the Knight Recipients, awarded annually to an individual or couple who has made significant contributions to the advancement of Bishop Kelly High School and the Bishop Kelly Foundation, were Dick & Jody Mooney and George & Cheryl Colwell. You can ready their bios and incredible contributions to BK in the program link above.
Guests also enjoyed our photo booth, delicious dinner paired with specially selected wines, and yummy desserts before a very successful live auction, which for the first time, included two cars! One car was a classic, mint-condition 1999 Mercedes with 28,000 miles on it, donated by long-time supporters John and Dee Fery. The other was a new 2017 Scion IM, generously donated by DH and Margaret Moss, BK parents and owners of Tom Scott Toyota.
Thank you to all those who make this evening a record success!
