Tampa Preparatory School parents, supporters and student volunteers came out in cocktail attire recently for the annual fundraising gala.
The event, called The One, featured food samplings of fine cuisine, drinks, a silent auction, entertainment by NuSoul Music and a live Fund-A-Need auction that brought in $100,000.
An additional $100,000 is expected from an online silent auction.
Chaired by Alta Schlemmer, the March 1 event at The Vault in the historic Exchange Bank Building drew more than 200 guests.
A patrons party was held prior to the main event.
