French-Inspired Fundraiser to Benefit All Saints By-the-Sea Preschool

Date night in Paris! Well, not exactly, but the next best thing is the très chic Hôtel Costes gala at the Coral Casino at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 8.

An annual benefit for All Saints By-the-Sea Preschool (last year’s retro theme was "Mad Men"), this year the Coral Casino will be transformed into the opulent Hôtel Costes, a Parisian hotel famed for its music and nightlife.

“Think French castle with a side of disco ball,” event co-chairs Gianna Colombo and Talina Hermann said.

The evening will include a cocktail hour with a silent auction, dinner with a live auction, and dancing to the musical stylings of DJ Fab, himself a French import. Dress is fierce: black, maroon, lace and animal prints. Roar!

For almost 50 years, the nonprofit All Saints By-the-Sea Episcopal Parish School has served children ages 2½ to 5 with a quality early childhood education.

Colombo, a mom to three young boys, says All Saints is not to be confused with day care: “The teachers are licensed in early childhood education and they approach teaching in varied styles to appeal to all types of learners: kinesthetic, visual, auditory and tactile.”

Hermann, whose daughter attends ASBTS, said: “The teachers genuinely care for our children. There’s a real sense of community and family.”

Both moms praise the school for its emphasis on teaching gratitude and respect for one another.

The evening’s proceeds will benefit the school’s curriculum, classrooms, facilities and scholarship fund. Tickets are $150, and the gala is open to all All Saints families, past, present and incoming. It’s a parents’ party! For additional information, please contact Hermann at 310.804.9160 or Colombo at 805.895.8842.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
