A fundraising event honoring the work of longtime local educator Kay McCarthy will be held Saturday, Nov. 24, at Temple Sukkat Shalom. The evening will feature live jazz music from Robert Cohen, Adrian Minne and Doug Bridges, as well as a silent auction. All proceeds will go toward scholarship tuition for The Garnet School preschool.
Garnet schools are based on the Reggio Emilia approach to childhood learning, which is described as child-centered, and one in which the environment, both outside and inside the school, is considered to be a third teacher. More information about the Garnet School in Juneau is available at www.garnetschool.com.
The fundraising event runs from 7-10 p.m. at Temple Sukkat Shalom, 211 Cordova St. Douglas on Saturday. Tickets are $20 each, or $50 for a family, and are available at Hearthside books and at the door. Admission price includes dessert, coffee, tea and sparkling cider.
