Tickets Available for Fremd Viking Booster Club’s 20th Annual Dinner Dance
This year’s Emerald Gala will be held on Nov. 22 at the Cotillion Banquets, 360 S. Creekside Dr., in Palatine. The gala starts at 6 p.m. and is open to the public. Tickets are $95 per adult and all funds raised will benefit the Fremd Viking Booster Club.
“The Fremd Boosters greatly appreciates all of the attendees, donors and advertisers who have contributed to this year’s Emerald Gala Dinner Dance,” said Peter Carlson, Fremd Viking Booster Club president. “The funds raised at this event reach every student at Fremd in some way. Your generosity will provide support to organizations, activities, clubs, music, drama, the arts, and athletic teams, as well as Writer’s Week, a Scholarship program, and the preeminent Post-Prom event in the area.
This is the 20th year for the Fremd Viking Booster Club’s dinner dance, and in recognition of this memorial event, the program was rebranded the Emerald Gala this year. A $4,000 pair of emerald earrings will be given away at the dinner dance to a lucky winner. Hundreds of additional items will be available through live and silent auctions.
The gala will include music and an open bar. The support of the community and local businesses has made this event a major fundraiser for the Booster Club. All of the proceeds from this event, in addition to the Booster’s other fundraising activities, supports and benefits all Fremd students.
