A musical tour through the past was the highlight of the 14th Annual Starry, Starry Night fund-raising event, a birthday bash that celebrated the Holt School’s 50 years of educating working adults and raised $128,500 for Hamilton Holt School student scholarships. Piloted by “The Decades of Dance,” an internationally recognized extravaganza of singers, musicians, and dancers, the evening’s time machine began at Motown, traveled to Studio 54, and ended up at the New Millennium, presenting the best songs of the last five decades.
The party mood wasn’t limited to the entertainment. There was birthday food galore at both the cocktail reception and the gourmet dinner that followed, including connoisseur versions of corn dogs, French fries, M&M’s, and s’mores. Not to mention a cupcake-tower birthday cake that was so big it arrived on wheels. Confetti cannons saluted the milestone event, and guests who forgot to wear their dancing shoes didn’t have to worry – socks were provided in both pink and white.
“Everyone connected with the Hamilton Holt School can take pride in celebrating the school’s 50 years of educating working adults,” said Director of Advancement Joanne Hanley. “Rollins’ evening degree program serves our community by offering a Rollins education to Central Florida’s nontraditional students.”
