A trivia night and silent auction on Saturday raised $7,161 for Project Graduation, a parent-organized party for Brentwood High School seniors.
More than 150 people attended the four-hour fundraiser at the school’s administrative offices in the Hanley Industrial Court. Nineteen eight-person teams competed over 10 rounds while members of the 2014 senior class fetched them drinks and snacks. Numerous gift packages were displayed on tables for a silent auction.
Project Graduation is a drug-free and alcohol-free celebration that includes games, activities, food, entertainment, music, and prize giveaways. The annual event is held the same night as the commencement ceremony in May and is chaperoned by parent volunteers.
