The Oak Park and River Forest High School Faculty Senate and staff raised more than $5,000 for Red Cross tsunami relief efforts at a Jan. 24 event at Kevil's, 7228 Circle Ave., in Forest Park. Alumni Frank and Colleen Kevilâ€"whose restaurant was already sponsoring a week-long tsunami relief fundraiserâ€" donated use of their restaurant and refreshments for the late afternoon soiree. A silent auction featured a wealth of creative donations from staff, including exquisite pottery and prints created by OPRFHS art teachers, to weekend getaways at summer cottages, to a scrumptious lemon meringue pie, homemade to order!

The faculty/staff fundraiser complemented an OPRFHS Student Council fundraiser that raised $680 in its first week.
