As those in attendance danced the evening away, the gala raised thousands of dollars, all of which directly benefit the Academy for Academic Excellence’s new multipurpose room and the construction of a new campus for Norton Science and Language Academy, according to Armando Quintana, a member of the Lewis Center for Educational Research’s Foundation Board.

“A special thank you goes out to all of our guests for making this evening not only a successful one, but an incredible night to be remembered. Until next year!” stated Armando Quintana.
