More than 250 were in attendance on Friday night, November 3, 2017, to support our Navajo Missions Team and help finance their return to the Navajo Nations in Spring 2018. The team served dinner and provided a talent show.
Great food was served, including Navajo-style tacos, which were a tremendous hit.
The talent show featured 10 acts composed of members of our Missions Team and other RCS students.
The Top Winners were decided by how much money that was contributed in support of the act right after the Talent Show: First Place – Julia Fresquez ($914), who performed a tap dance solo; Second Place – Adam Phillips and Jackson Goodell ($500); and Third Place – Kelly Tang, Lauren Tang, Emma Neal, Maddie Shasky, and Xeriz Barcarse ($430).
The Food/Cooking/Serving team consisted of Maddie Shasky, Kelly Tang, Allison Fontillas, Lita Bruno, and their parents. Special thanks to parents Rae Shasky and Gio Bruno for being our “head chefs”!
The Decoration/Setup team consisted of Emma Neal, Cassie Matangelo, Brianna Faye De La Cuesta, Meghan Geer, Jackson Goodell, Joseph Carlton, Isaac Hague, Jessica Brock, Kimberly Najarian, and Emma Najarian.
