COLDSPRING — The Coldspring-Oakhurst CISD Education Foundation (COEF) recently held its spring fundraiser “An Enchanted Evening Y’all” at Pearls in the Pines in Point Blank. 

The theme of the evening was based on the idea of a second-chance prom for those who may not have attended their prom back in the day — or just wanted to relive it — with a little western cowboy style thrown into the mix.

COEF President Suzanne York said it was an evening of dancing, fine food and fun for all who attended. All of the proceeds will provide funds for academic projects and materials for COCISD teachers, academic departments and campuses for innovative projects that would otherwise not be able to get funding.

“Every dollar raised goes directly to benefit COCISD teachers and classrooms,” said York. “It was a great event for a good cause.”

York said the evening was a huge success thanks to the event’s underwriters: Wolf Creek Air Conditioning, Loflin Environmental Services, Representative Ernest Bailes and family, Carriage House Farm & Vineyard, and Perdue Brandon Fielder Collins & Mott, LLC. She and her husband, Mark York, also contributed to the event.
