2018 Silent Auction
This year’s Ladies Tea & Silent Auction was the most successful ever (It seems we keep saying that 🙂 )!
Our goal was to exceed last year’s attendance and to raise at least the same amount ($8,762), both of which we exceeded. We had 90 in attendance, and to say we were crowded is an understatement, but it was so much fun. There were great networking opportunities, wonderful food thanks to Cake House on Main. Our auction raised $9,520 almost $1,ooo more than our goal and more than 3 times what we raised 2 years ago!
We are eternally grateful to this wonderful community for their generosity and continued support of our school.
When: Thursday, April 26, 2018 11:30AM – 1:30PM
Where: Acworth Beach House, 4425 Beach St NW, Acworth, GA 30101-5303

“We have VERY exciting news to share! Assuming Governor Deal signs the bill (which we fully expect), the Tax credit cap will be increased from $58 million to $100 million for the next 10 years starting in 2019. After the 10 year mark, the cap would be reduced back to $58 million.
There will be an assessment of the program and its effectiveness in saving the state money and providing opportunities to families at the 5 year mark. With the expectation that the results will be in our favor, we could possibly expect an even more favorable result legislatively at that point.
The bill also includes some moderate fee reductions for SSO’s and improves the SSO reporting process.
We would like to take a moment to thank Representative John Carson. Without Rep Carson, the tax credit cap expansion bill would never have come to fruition. Rep Carson expended a great deal of time, energy, and political capital to get this bill across the finish line in a format that was favorable to all of us in the program. There will thousands of additional children who will directly benefit from the work done to accomplish this monumental task.
If you would like to personally thank Rep. Carson for his tremendous work on the expansion of the tax credit program, he can be reached at
Another key player in the expansion of the program was Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle, who supported the larger cap increase to take place immediately rather than the proposed escalator. Casey Cagle’s role in the Senate was vital to the success of the bill.
We are extremely excited for the long overdue expansion to the program and for the tremendous impact this expansion will have on providing educational opportunities for Georgia families.
We are thankful for your response to our legislative alert. It is always refreshing to see our legislative body react favorably to the support of a bill we have all been working towards for such a long time.”
