The annual “Cheers for Conway” auction hosted by Conway Elementary School raised more than $20,000 on Saturday, Nov. 7, at Cardwell’s in Clayton.
The proceeds will be used for technology, special assemblies, library and PE supplies, along with other items and services for the students.
According to Ladue News, popular auction items were the “Ice Cream Arrest,” where a Ladue police officer “arrests” a child and a few friends and they ride in the patrol car to eat ice cream, and teachers having lunch with the winner.
“This annual event is very important to our school in that the money we raise every year goes to ensure that our students have one-on-one technology and other educational needs. We are very grateful for the generosity of all of our donors and those who supported the auction,” Co-chair Terrio Grillo told Ladue News.
