Opportunity School Loves the 90s

Support early childhood education at LIPS on October 2

The annual LIPS! event begins at 6:00 pm in the Civic Center Heritage Room, starting with cocktails, dinner and live show.

LIPS! is Opportunity School’s biggest night, helping raise money to meet the needs of Amarillo’s youngest at-risk children ages birth to five.  LIPS! is a thoroughly entertaining evening of food, fun, and musical entertainment.  The evening includes SIPS at 6:00 p.m. with complimentary cocktails, silent auction bidding, and hors d’oeuvres.  Dinner is served at 7:00, followed by a live sponsorship auction and the lip-sync show at 8:00.  Over 20 years, the event has grown in popularity, attracting over 500 guests last year. We have a great group of high-energy acts lined up with a great new emcee in Jaime McBride who will keep the audience in stitches.  

 

Don’t miss this incredibly entertaining evening with friends! Advance reservations are needed, due to catering. Business and group sponsorships available with reserved seating. The public is welcome and can make reservations by calling (806) 373-4245 or online at opportunityschool.com. Tickets are $50/person or $150/Patron for reserved seating

Opportunity School is…
a nonprofit organization in Amarillo, Texas, created in 1969 by volunteers from First Presbyterian Church to address a community need – children who lacked basic learning skills and experiences entered school unprepared for academic achievement, and many never caught up to their peers.  Opportunity School has been able to provide more than 3,600 young at-risk children with opportunities to learn and grow over the past 44 years.

Opportunity School provides…
high-quality, early childhood education and caring family support during the primary years –
from birth to five – primarily to children from low-income families.

Opportunity School exists because…
research shows that high quality early learning experiences help children achieve success in school and in life
.

Weather Related Closings:

It's that time of year! For weather-related closings - We generally follow AISD (www.amaisd.org) guidelines. If Amarillo school are closed, then both Opportunity School campuses will close. We may also decide to delay or close when AISD doesn't if we think it's too dangerous. We will report closures or delays on tv stations KAMR, KVII and KFDA and on KGNC radio - these are the only ones.

Also, please know that Central Campus buses may not run during inclement weather..
