Everyone at Thompson Island is still buzzing from the excitement of the 2015 Evening Expedition Gala. A huge thank you goes out to all donors, sponsors, guests, volunteers and speakers for their support. The energy in the Seaport Hotel on April 9th was infectious and has made the 2015 Gala our most successful event ever, raising over $600,000!
We’d like to thank everyone who attended for their enthusiasm in supporting the children we serve and helping us honor TripAdvisor with the North Star Award.
There are two highlights that most prominently represent the magic of the night – listening to Vicheath and Janielle’s vivid and inspiring speeches, and witnessing many peoples’ passion to provide more opportunities to get thousands of children like them to the island during the live appeal.
The event celebrated the lasting benefits of enhanced learning opportunities on Thompson Island. Janielle embodied this celebration when she announced that this upcoming fall she will be, “climbing from Outward Bound, to College Bound.”
