March Message from LPIE President Amy Parlett
Wow! I have been saying that a lot this past week. That is because I am still in amazement at what a fantastic show of support for our schools was shown at the Power Party. The night was filled with energy and enthusiasm, and people were so very generous. We are still distributing auction winnings and calculating sales and expenses. Thank you to all involved! We will know very soon the total amount brought in from the party and I am anxious to share that news with you! In the meantime, we have pay to play parties and a few remaining silent auction items that will be posted for purchase and bidding. Look for those after Spring Break!
Did you know LPIE has a Business and Real Estate Partner Program? We do! Five of those Partners made a very large financial commitment this year in becoming Power Party Sponsors: the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, Cobain Orthodontics, Dana Green, Julie Del Santo of Dudum Reality, and Village Associates. I extend great appreciation to each of them for their role in making our event a huge success. Thank you Party Sponsors!
Our Business and Real Estate Partner Program really represents a commitment to community. It recognizes that property values and a vibrant business district go hand in hand with a high caliber of education. We are fortunate to live in a beautiful place like Lafayette where citizens care about their town and the people in it.
LPIE currently has 38 business and real estate partners for 2017. Hopefully you read our electronic mailing called Sweet Offers that highlights all of these partners as well as any special deals they have that give back to LPIE. You can also see our partner list on our website. I would love it if everyone would familiarize themselves with these people and visit their stores or utilize their services. Even giving them a thank you for their LPIE partnership is valuable. They are making an investment into the education our kids receive every single day, and that is pretty awesome. I applaud each of these groups for investing in Lafayette’s schools. Thank you so very much!
If you are (or know) a real estate agent or business owner not part of our program, please consider joining! Partner levels range from $500 to $5,000. We would love to add you to the power behind LPIE!
With appreciation for all partners and supporters,
