Académie Lafayette’s Parent Student Teacher Organization’s biggest fundraising event is in its 14th consecutive year. Do you like the after school clubs, sports teams and their uniforms, school nurses, AL family community events and parties, and the snackalicious fruit cart?!
The PTSO funds all of these things and this is the event that does it!
An Evening in Paris is a MAJORLY THEMED party and auction extravaganza like no other. You will find yourself surrounded by an always jubilant and festive Acadêmie Lafayette crowd while sampling innovative local restaurants, spirited libations, and shopping prime silent and live auction goodies.
Oh, and did we mention this year their will be gaming and a karaoke bar? and, as always, after the auction ends — DANCING!!
ATTIRE: Showcase your iconic Bond look while you join other gamers and agents playing Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, and Craps.
Académie Lafayette will continue to change the face of public education in Kansas City with a little help from our friends.
We are a public French immersion public charter school serving kindergarten through 8th grade students. Our funding comes from the same sources as other KCMO public schools but we receive less per student than non-charter public schools in the state, making fundraising critical to support our academic and growth needs.
Sponsorships are limited by the total number of tables available. Place your bets now!!

Not this year, dear ones. This is a casino theme with seating at the gaming tables. If you sponsor a casino table (Blackjack, Poker, etc.) you get preferential seating there for as many seats as are indicated in the sponsorship package (majority of them are 6 person tables) before general admission but, just like in other casinos, if you aren’t playing you need to make room for other gamers. Check out all the pluses to sponsoring on our website! Brand exposure for your company or friend group, table signage proudly announcing your generosity, auction program love, social media shout out, and more!
This is true but there will be over 50 gaming tables with plenty of seats at each one so if you are using your casino cash to play you should always be able to find a seat. If all the tables are full there will be plenty of high top bar tables to park your drink on and chat up friends while you wait.
With every admission ticket you get a certain amount of casino cash to gamble with and to bid on silent auction items designated in the Casino Cash section. There will be NO actual cash accepted at the tables but there will be lots of buy-in incentives throughout the night which you can purchase via the card you register with for the auction. It’s a fundraiser so we will make that part easy for you! Lots of Auction Concierges with iPads will be available if you have any questions.
Absolutely! The silent auction will have items up for bid the usual way and, of course, the LIVE auction will all be in legal tender.
Our amazing restaurant partners will consolidate into one serving station and all those yummies will be passed around by parent volunteers so a scrumptious nibble should be accessible at all times.
Check out our Pinterest link on FB or on the website for inspiration. Be Bond, be a Bond girl, be a villain, be a spy or an agent – it’s all good!
