Candeo Schools Special Anniversary Gala and Auction

Friday, April 27, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm MST

Candeo Schools Peoria, Arizona Special Anniversary Gala and Auction is being held from 6-10 p.m. on April 27, 2018, at the Blackstone Country Club. Come and enjoy a festive evening of gourmet dining, exciting auction items, special entertainment, dancing, and community spirit while celebrating the 10th anniversary of Candeo Schools and their continued commitment to growing brilliance.
Festivities begin at 6 p.m. with cocktails, mocktails (non-alcoholic cocktails), and silent auction items, followed by an artisan dinner created by Executive Chef, Stephen Duarte. Chef Duarte believes in using fresh, local ingredients for his regionally inspired and flavorful cuisine.

Entertainment for the evening includes musical performances by Candeo teachers, as well as live and silent auctions and a DJ for a night of dancing. Matt Bullock, Master of Ceremonies for the evening, promises plenty of laughs from his days as a Mixed Nuts comedy troupe member. Matt is also a current candidate for the Legislative District 22 House seat and a past member of the Peoria Unified School District Governing Board.

“We are excited to celebrate this milestone with our community,” shared Dr. Musser, Candeo Founder and Head of School. She added, “The evening is meant as a time for reflection for all we have accomplished and celebration for what we will accomplish in the years to come. The gala will help us fundraise to ensure we can continue to deliver the world-class education for which we are so well known.”

All proceeds from this event directly support the school. From making sure the teachers have all the resources, funds, and support they need, to ensure our facilities are top-notch, the money raised from this event builds Candeo’s capacity to continue to focus on what is most important: providing the highest and best in education for years to come.

Here are just a few of the exciting items up for auction:

Four (4) VIP tickets for the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open with hosted food and beverages in the M Catering Tent on the 18th Fairway.
Two (2) Reserved Grandstand Seats for the NASCAR Xfinity Series Race on Nov. 10, 2018.
