PEF Main Event Is In Full Swing! Save the date for May 10th! The theme this year is very fun – Let's BOND – a James Bond inspired event! It's going to be a fabulous evening! Casino tables, auction, live entertainment and dancing! FUN! It's really best if you can coordinate a table or two from your school. We do seat people by school and it creates a lot of enthusiasm when we have the school cheering by section. If you have friends who want to volunteer at Main Event, we LOVE grown up volunteers and have plenty of jobs for them! See pvpef.org for more info. For the auction see: maineventauction.com
