Mysterious items began to appear in the downstairs hall of the school this week, as preparation for our first-ever Pileau To Go fund-raiser got underway: stacks of containers, bags of bread, wrapped slices of pound cake, and more. By Thursday, everything was almost ready to fill orders for more than 600 orders of pileau that our Kingfishers had presold for $8 a plate.
On Friday September 25, a truck pulled up on the front lawn, holding several giant pots of steaming homemade chicken pileau. The Baker family are the local expert at preparing this quintessentially Southern dish and they went all out for us. The smell was delightful and the taste was even better! Thank you, Mike, Ashley and the whole clan, for sharing your cooking skills and for working so hard to make this fund-raiser a success.
Kingfisher Crew Co-Captains Sandy Martin and Mahi Livain worked tirelessly. They spent hours organizing the work force and supplies, making sure everything was ready for pick-up day. Kingfishers responded generously, buying plates, preparing sides, and dishing up the food. Congratulations to all for a job well done with amazing sales to help our Scholarship Fund!
“The Pileau To Go fund-raiser was successful on all fronts, raising money for our school and involving a large number of our families in a cooperative effort,” said Dr. Gates. “It generated contacts and interest and goodwill in the community.”
Thank you, Kingfisher Crew! Go Kingfishers!
