Several thousand dollars.
Covered in suds, Preston Hollow students waxed on and waxed off to raise more than $7,400 during a recent car wash.
Lamplighter‘s Young Alumni Association participated in the private school’s third-annual car wash May 18 to help pay for the land the school acquired from Hockaday in 2010, while also collecting accessories for the nonprofit Attitudes and Attire.
Young Alumni chairwoman Katherine Dau and fellow alumni organized the event and met every month to prepare for the car wash. They also visited local businesses and brought in Sander Siegel, Eatzi’s, KD Notes, Texas Cars Direct, JD’s Chippery and the Mosley and Durst families as sponsors.
The students also recently raised about $1,500 to divide between the Lamplighter Land Fund, North Texas Food Bank and UNICEF with profits from Lamplighter Layers, the fourth graders’ chicken and egg business.
Students sold about 5,000 eggs during this past academic year.
