2008 SchoolHouse Rock

Cornerstone Schools of Alabama

After the Super Bowl and Mardi Gras is usually party season around Birmingham. Unfortunately, this year many events have been forced to turn virtual or even cancel. We decided to resurface some of these events that we are missing! Here we have the 2008 SchoolHouse Rock, an event that would usually happen around early February.

The 3rd annual SchoolHouse Rock was held at WorkPlay in 2008 benefitting the Cornerstone Schools of Alabama. Guests enjoyed a silent auction that  featured a weekend getaway at the Grayton Sunset Beach Home, a consult with a local interior designer, 2 round trip tickets through Southwest Airlines, golf passes for Limestone Springs, Farmlinks and Robert Trent Jones – Oxmoor Valley, artwork by local artists and Cornerstone students, spa and photography packages, dining certificates and much more.

Founded in 1993, Cornerstone is a private school for inner-city children with two campuses located in the Eastlake and Woodlawn areas of Birmingham.  The school began as the dream of a group of the city’s business leaders to stop the endless cycle of poverty and crime that goes hand-in-hand with an inadequate education.  At Cornerstone 260 children in grades K-4 through 8th are receiving a college preparatory education in a faith-filled environment and are gaining skills to gain admittance to competitive area high schools and to achieve their full potential.

Music was provided by John Williams and Friends, and Meteorite.
