Carver Elementary School PTA held its annual parent party, “The Greatest Show: A Million Dreams Gala,” on Saturday. The vintage-circus-themed event was held under the big top of the Sheraton San Gabriel, owned by Carver Elementary parent Celia Sun. The parent party ringmasters were Jennifer Park, Christine Hyun Song and Cathy Newton.
Parents were dressed in their gala best, along with some guests dressed in circus-themed attire to light up the night. A silent auction was held, which included some rare items, such as the ringmaster costume worn by Principal Michael Lin for the promotional parent party video. There were plenty of fun games throughout the evening for guests to play and raise money for the school. Parents were able to get their fortunes read by Zoltar from the movie “Big,” test their strength with a high striker game, take photos with “Hugh Jackman” in the photo booth, try out a vintage love-tester game and even get a caricature done with an artist on hand.
During the paddle-raise portion of the night, the six top donors were able to take home one of the special stuffed animals adorning the stage choosing between a dragon, unicorn, elephant, lion, tiger and a giraffe.
