The highlight of the evening was a video presentation that features Circle students Robert and Trinity Wood, their parents Rob and Freddi and three younger siblings.  The video was created by the James Madison Institute.  Special thanks to Bill Mattox, David Mattox and the team at JMI for telling this inspiring story.

The fundraising goal for the event was $50,000.  70% of the funds are earmarked for STEM related enhancements for our academic programs (laptop computers and software, robotics kits, 3-D printers, classroom projectors, microscopes, and teacher training).  The remainder of the funds will be designated for athletics (to expand lower school opportunities and to provide equipment and uniforms for existing teams) and the arts department to offer wider student theatre opportunities.

As of this posting we have raised $45,310.

  • Denim & Diamonds – $43,000
  • Giving Tuesday – $ 2,310

We wish to thank everyone that has assisted with this endeavor.  A special thanks to the generous sponsors and donors that provided financial support as well as those that donated items for the auction. We also thank the many volunteers that gave their time and efforts to make this event a reality. Please support the businesses (listed below) that helped make this event a success.


There is still time for you to give to this great cause.  Please consider a tax deductible donation to help us surpass our goal. God bless you all!
