2020 Monte Carlo Results and Thank Yous

Monte Carlo Results
The GEF Board is thrilled to announce that thanks to your generosity and the love you have for Greenwood schools, our Monte Carlo profit was just over $50,000, a significant increase over last year. You continue to come through for us with your support for what we do, and we will continue to do all we can to be deserving of that support. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. We are so appreciative and can’t wait to get back to work for the students and teachers in the Greenwood schools.
-Donna Jones, GEF President

Thank you to our vendors!
The GEF Board would like to thank the following Monte Carlo vendors that gave back generously to us and made it possible for us raise more money for Greenwood students and teachers than we ever have before. We greatly appreciate your continued support as well as your loyalty to our Foundation and our cause:
  • The Sycamore at Mallow Run: Special thanks to Kim, Dakota and the Richardsons at the Sycamore for being so fantastic to work with and so generous with their time and efforts to make this our best Monte Carlo yet. We couldn’t ask for better people to work with or a more beautiful and perfectly-laid-out venue for our event. You guys are the best, and we appreciate you so much!
  • Grafton Peek Caterers: We are so grateful to Jason, Charles and Nikki for catering to our culinary needs so perfectly. They have been with us since the beginning in 2016 and up their game every year. The food this year was the best yet, and their service is always second-to-none. Nikki, with you in charge, we know we have nothing to worry about, and the dedication you show to our event is evident and appreciated. We are so appreciative for always being willing to work with our budget and always giving us your very best.
  • Central Nine—Robert Briones: We could never begin to top the work C-9 and specifically, Robert Briones, does for us in the creation of all of our promotional materials as well as our event materials including all signage, banners and programs. You go out of your way in a big way to make everything professionally perfect and are just so easy to work with. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
  • JW Creative – Jason Wetherholt: The video master. He takes tons of footage and makes literal video magic. Jason does such a great job taking our vision and bringing it to life in a way that touches the heart like nothing else. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us and making this project as important to you as you know it is to us.
  • Jaden Street Jazz: The icing on the cake for our event is the smooth jazz of Jaden Street Jazz. The perfect complement to our event, you guys help take our event to the next level with your musical talents. Thank you so much for working with us the past several years and sharing your music with us all.
  • Small Cakes: The little cupcake that could...and does. It’s become an expectation of our regulars to find this tasty treat sitting at every seat, ready to be savored with every little bite. The best cupcakes in town, without a doubt. Thank you Megan for being so good to us and offering to work with us in a way that allows us to continue this tradition. Thank you also for making available to us the best cupcakes around.
  • Silk Scapes: We are so grateful to Jim Small, owner of Silk Scapes for giving to us so generously since almost the beginning.  Their rentals helped bring our centerpieces to life and lent themselves so well to our event.  Jim you are always so kind to work with, and we are so appreciative for all you do.
  • Indiana Wedding Decorators: Thanks to Lisa at Indiana Wedding Decorators for working with us on our table linens this year.  This is the first year we’ve had to purchase them, and they made it a much easier pill to swallow than we had anticipated.  Because of their generosity, we were able to give that much more back to the kids.  The royal blue offset with the lime green was a beautiful combination, and Lisa, we are so appreciative to you for helping us out.  We also want to Leroy who did an excellent job with our sound this year.  Consider yourself a staple Leroy!  See you next year!
