‘DRESS ME UP’ IKEA ART AUCTION SUPPORTS LAKOTA ARTS Bid on a Student-Decorated Dresser May 6
For a third year, IKEA West Chester, in partnership with Lakota’s art teachers, is hosting “Dress Me Up,” a community silent auction and sale on May 6 benefiting Lakota’s art program. The art project challenges participating Lakota students to work as a team to transform a solid pine three-drawer TARVA dresser into a work of art. The final product, inspired by a famous artist or art movement, is sold to the highest bidder for the benefit of that school’s art program.
Group participation more than doubled this year after IKEA worked with Lakota’s art teachers to add a new item to the art project. In addition to 20 student-painted dressers, more than 40 vibrant student paintings, displayed in IKEA frames, will also be available for bid or for purchase.
IKEA generously matches every dollar from the purchase of the dressers and frames, up to $2,500. Last year’s auction raised more than $2,800, distributed among the participating schools to help purchase art supplies or support other student art opportunities
Student dressers and framed art will be on display in IKEA’s main entrance now through the end of April. The silent auction, held in IKEA’s restaurant with appetizers for attendees, will begin at 6 p.m. and close at 7 p.m. A brief program will follow with remarks from IKEA and Lakota representatives and an announcement of the winning bids.

PROM WEEKEND A HUGE SUCCESS    - The 2015 Prom Weekend was a huge success from start to finish. Students had a terrific time at Prom, dancing the night away and enjoying a great night with friends. Our kids looked great and everyone seemed to have a great evening. A special thank you goes to Princess Crenshaw, LaTia Farria, Dennis Smith, Mark Zimmerly and Stacy Orso who, along with our Prom Committee, organized the event. Special thanks also goes out to the faculty/staff members that helped to chaperone the Prom!
Once again, After-Prom lived up to its billing. Students enjoyed Wonderland which included food, a casino, a special performance by a hypnotist and tons of prizes.  A huge thank you goes to the PTSO for sponsoring the event as well as the parents who helped setup, supervise and tear down.  Special thanks to Libby Willms, After Prom Chairperson, for doing a terrific job of making sure we had a fun and safe event for our kids. Thanks again PTSO for a job well done!
