The Power of "S"! Event raised over $11,000 for The Lab School!!

First, let's give a round of applause to the dedicated committee members that made this event possible. Thank you to the highlighted Superheroes, donors, sponsors, silent auction contributors, and behind the scenes individuals who graciously gave their time, money and energy. Thank you to all the community leaders who attended! "The Lab" school is a legacy filled with Superheroes who are mover and shakers of our time. They are business and community leaders who are paving the way for the future of our youth. The POWER OF “S” IS REAL! The goal was met and the Kitten Club raised over $11,000!! I'm humbled an honored by the accolades, but nothing is accomplished without teamwork and support from the Lab School, Southern University and our sponsors/donors.
