Starry Night Benefits Serviam Students

Great music, dancing, delicious food, made for an exceptional feeling of community spirit at Serviam Academy’s annual ‘Evening Under the Stars’ on April 28th. More than 300 guests came out to Greenville Country Club to hear live tunes by Kristen & the Noise and support the girls school.

A new special raffle this year – tied to the purchase of a signature cocktail – was a big hit. For $20, guests could purchase an Old Fashion Starry Night cocktail or a glass of Sparkling Skies French 77 champagne, and with the purchase, they earned a chance to win an iPhone X. 

All proceeds support the education of 5th – 8th grade students at Serviam Girls Academy. School supplies, sports equipment, and academic scholarships are just a few of the items proceeds will support. Tuition is free for each of the underserved youth who attend Serviam Academy.

The night also featured stories from current 8th grade students, Serviam alums from the class of 2014 – about to graduate from high school – and a current sophomore at Del State (Serviam ’12) who has her eyes set on medical school!

 This year’s planning committee included Melissa and John Bilek, Cynthia Chubb, Tina and Kevin DiSabatino, Sonya Floyd, Kelly and Matthew Houston, Dana Isom, Courtney and Byron Johnson, Abby and Craig McCloskey, Jessica Manion, Janet and Rob Rossiter, Erin and Jamie Rubano, Kelie and Michael Toth, Chip Schussler, and Joni Young.

Head of School Peggy Heins was grateful to the team who made this extraordinary event possible. “This is an event that we get excited about every year, especially because it gives some of our students the chance to interact with our supporters. Evening Under the Stars brings together the community who supports our mission to provide quality education for all children and celebrates the incredible successes of our students and alumnae.”

Addressing guests at the event, Heins shared her passion for the school’s mission. “Together, we provide opportunities where they may otherwise not exist, allowing talent to flourish and paving the way for futures otherwise unimagined.”
