Back to the 80’s

Rubix Cubes, walkmans, Trapper Keepers, the painstaking effort of creating the perfect mixtape and the intricate art of note folding – all things that our kids will never truly appreciate but were iconic mile markers of those that grew up in the 80’s. That neon hued era comes alive when Sagewood Middle School’s PTO presents Saagewood’s Back to the 80’s Auction/Dinner/Casino annual fundraising event, held this year on Saturday, March 3rd at Heritage Eagle Bend Golf Club. Since the event’s inception a few years ago, the night has continued to grow into the signature evening for the Sagewood community and a wonderful way to support the school, and wonderful things the students and staff at Sagewood are doing.

Sagewood Middle School,very proudly, is the only DCSD Middle School that:

  • offers a mandatory Innovation and Design Lab class that focuses on challenging students to critically think, problem solve, be resilient learners, and use industry-level technology and tools.
  • offers Student Government as a class and AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), a nationally recognized program for college readiness.
  • is an Ambassador School for Lockheed Martin.
  • is Common Sense Media Certified; actively educating students on online media safety, utilizing online resources, and promoting digital citizenship.

Sagewood is also the only DCSD Middle School and only Middle School in the State of Colorado that is RAMP certified by the American School Counselor Association, a preventative, comprehensive counseling program. Additionally, they are one of two DCSD Middle Schools that are a One-to-One device school and Sagewood is also a multiple grant recipient of Century Link, Groove Automotive, Lockheed Martin, and, DCEF.
With all the amazing things that are happening at Sagewood, it’s incredible to think of what’s to come, making it all that more important to continue to support them in their endeavors.

The 80’s Auction/Dinner/Casino night will commence with an open bar and silent auction with rows and rows of tempting luxuries up for bid, and that’s just the start of the evening! Once the dinner hour begins and the silent auction closes, Mayor Mike Waid will serve as the master of ceremonies as the evening’s enjoyment continues though dinner with several raffle games, the highly anticipated live auction and the always amusing dessert dash. Last year’s live auction included numerous amazing items up for bid, including a South African Safari!

At the conclusion of the live auction and dessert, attendees are invited to adjourn to the gaming tables (sponsored by local businesses) to try their luck at poker, blackjack, roulette and craps. If you’re not feeling overly lucky, you can always just hit the dance floor to totally awesome 80’s music!

Proceeds from this super rad night out directly benefit Sagewood Middle School in their efforts to repair and resurface Sagewood’s track. It is currently completely “grody to the max” and in such disrepair that student athletes have to be bussed to Ponderosa High School for home Track and Field competitions.

The entire community is invited to stack up their bangles and bust out those shoulder pads (80’s dress is encouraged but not required) and join Sagewood families, faculty and staff for a, like, totally gnarly night out. Tickets can be purchased until about a week prior to the event at Tickets include entrance to the event, $100 in gaming chips, a drink ticket and your dinner.
