Teacher sponsor Sinead Hibbert said more than 200 students and staff at EPS pitch in to make the evening a success – from preparing the food, to decorating and serving.

The evening includes dinner, dessert and entertainment.

Held at the 13484 24 Ave. school, dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m.; doors open at 5 p.m., and the event wraps up at 7:30 p.m.
