The de Paul school is celebrating 45 years of education based on encouragement and transformation. de Paul gives students with learning differences a chance to succeed with specially formulated curriculum and individual attention. Almost 50 percent of their students receive tuition assistance, and the biggest fundraiser of the year is coming up.
On Thursday, Oct. 23, de Paul’s annual “de Party” will be held at The Henry Clay, and this year’s theme is a throwback to the ’70s. The event begins at 7:30 p.m., and doors open at 5:30.
Every year, “de Party” generates nearly $100,000, making up the majority of the funds for the tuition assistance program. Several ticket packages and sponsorships are available online. The evening will feature disco-inspired performances by students, dinner, drinks, as well as silent and live auctions. Some of the featured items include gift certificates to Davis Jewelers and Krebs Optical, a Turf Club Day at Churchill Downs, dinner with the head of de Paul, a basket of booze, tickets to the Corvette Museum and much more.
The de Paul School has been recognized as one of America’s top 50 best private schools for students with special needs. All profits from “de Party” goes to tuition assistance for families in need. To learn more about the experiences of individual students, you can visit de Paul’s website.
