Atlanta special needs school Cumberland Academy of Georgia is a private school providing students with a safe and supportive educational environment. Every year, the school hosts a themed gala to celebrate the accomplishments of its students and to raise funds for the upcoming year. The 2016 gala is a Saturday Night Fever themed Disco Ball, held on March 19, 2016.

The Disco Ball will be a groovy evening celebrated with far-out food and friends. Guests should be sure to bring their boogie shoes for a night filled with disco dancing, a bodacious buffet, cocktails, casino-style games and a live and silent auction. This year’s auction will include many amazing items, including a week-long Hawaiian vacation, an adorable pure-bred puppy, beautiful jewelry items, a condo in Florida, and much more.

Each year, Cumberland honors an individual or organization at the gala for their contribution to the school. This year, the gala will be held in honor of Bruce and Judi Schindler. A member of the advisory board since 2013, Bruce Schindler boasts over 40 years of entrepreneurial experience, assisting the school in developing plans and business ideas.

"We are so excited to honor Bruce and Judi Schindler at our annual Gala, the Disco Ball,” says Debbi Scarborough, founding director of Cumberland Academy of Georgia. “The Schindlers have a deep connection to Cumberland and have been supporters of the school since its inception. Cumberland continues to thrive thanks to these groovy honorees and many others.”

85 percent of the proceeds raised during the event will directly benefit Cumberland Academy of Georgia. “This annual fundraiser has been instrumental in providing students and teachers with additional support, such as educational & staff development, school buses and physical education equipment,” says Scarborough. “Each year, our students receive additional support thanks to amazing supporters like Bruce and Judi Schindler and our gala contributors."
