Extraordinary Evening on the Mountaintop!!

Bundle up in your favorite ski sweater and jeans to join the Plano community for “An Extraordinary Evening on the Mountaintop” at Ski Plano 2011, a fundraiser hosted by the Plano ISD Education Foundation. The 15th annual event, which benefits Plano ISD students, staff and programs, will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 29, 2011, at Southfork Ranch in Parker, Texas.

Ski Plano Chair Joa Muns, Co-Chair Rebecca Egelston-Caso and the Ski Plano Committee will host more than 900 guests including business and community leaders, district officials, administrators, parents and teachers.

Under the leadership of Mrs. Muns, who also serves on the Foundation Board, Ski Plano will offer an evening of fun and games with a definite purpose—to focus attention on the community’s opportunities to support academic achievement for all Plano ISD students through support of the Foundation. “Ski Plano is one of the largest events in Collin County,” said Mrs. Muns. “It is a casual and fun event that is enjoyable for everyone. More importantly, it provides funds for important programs that help enhance the education of all children.

The evening’s activities will feature a seated dinner, dancing to the music of Mars Hill, silent and live auctions and the Neiman Marcus Avalanche raffle with four fabulous prizes. Live auction items will include a Lexus Model Sampler 12-month lease donated by Park Place Lexus; a Super Bowl Party package for two; two VIP tickets to a live taping of Dancing with the Stars; a Willow Bend Shopping Extravaganza; a Maggiano's Wine Dinner for 12; Game Night in the Capital One Suite for a Dallas Stars game; and a Napa Wine Country VIP Tour.

The firm of Gay McCall, Isaacks, Gordon and Roberts is returning as the Aspen Sponsor. James and Betty Muns are Sun Valley sponsors. Vail Sponsors are Capital One, Texas Instruments, Innovative Solutions for Education, Abernathy, Roeder, Boyd and Price, P.C. and Verizon.
