Roadrunner Rundown | Week 26


Table of Contents



 

Lee Live is TOMORROW...


I've cut this edition of the Rundown to the bare minimum of non-Lee Live related items in an effort to focus our efforts on tomorrow's events.



What is Lee Live?



This is the biggest, most important fundraiser that the PTA hosts each year so your presence/participation is both requested and appreciated. Your ticket to Lee Live will get you entry into an adults only celebration that includes live music, a live auction, an open bar, dinner and a chance to socialize with school staff, administration faculty, and caregivers in a totally different setting. This year's theme is the classic board game and film Clue and each grade was assigned a color to help us all get into the spirit of the event.


We'd love to see you channel that vintage glamour of the theme but also come as you are because all are welcome here.


PLEASE share the Lee Live link with your friends and family so they can participate in the Silent Auction because every single dollar raised will impact our 2024-2025 budget. https://bit.ly/leelive2024

Drop off: If you are being dropped off by an Uber or Lyft, get out on West Avenue, not Cesar Chavez.

Parking: 

  • Due to limited onsite parking at the Central Library, guests are encouraged to carpool or use alternate modes of transportation.

  • The garage entrance is located on West Avenue. Please take the SOUTH elevator (closest to Cesar Chavez Street) from either P1 or P2 to the 1st Floor. Exit the elevator to your left. The Special Event Center entrance entrance is a few steps east of the main library entrance.

Music Preview: HeartByrne


HeartByrne pays tribute to Talking Heads and David Byrne, who fused pop, funk, art rock, and African rhythms into perhaps the most adventurous, danceable and timeless music to emerge from the new wave movement.




Music Preview: Eagle Eye Williamson


Eagle Eye Williamson is a 7th generation Texas from Austin who creates original blues/vintage rock music playing drums, guitar and singing at the same time.






 

Thank you Volunteers

Y'all Lee Live takes a lot of people so this list although featuring key folks is no where near comprehensive. Huge thanks go out to ever person who put in an hour of time, dropped something in the donation bin, make some calls, helped brainstorm, or took on major projects.
