Dear Friends, Thank you for joining Valley Christian Schools for our 7th Annual Quest Ball and Auction! Each year, this event is the cornerstone of the Extend the Gift Office’s annual fund-raising work and a beloved Valley Christian Tradition. For 60 years, God has shown his love and faithfulness to the VCS Community through countless challenges. This year will no doubt go down in history as one of the greatest challenges our school has faced. Still, the Quest for Excellence Continues, because of you! Last year, despite the pandemic preventing our 2020 Quest Ball, our community stepped up in big ways to support our students. That support for our WARRIOR FUND made a significant impact and provided resources that were needed to adapt and support our students this year. Because of our Youth with Promise financial aid, almost 400 kids, who could not have otherwise attended VCS, were able to receive the financial aid needed to continue their education at Valley this year. What an incredible difference that has made for these students! Despite the countless challenges of this year, our kids are truly receiving one of the best educational experiences that exist right now. The pandemic brought so much to a halt, but it did not stop the Quest for Excellence. Our parents, teachers, staff, and children, by God’s grace, have truly pursued excellence in all things this year. I hope tonight gives you a small glimpse of the many wonderful things happening in our community. It’s the incredible and supportive community of parents, alumni, teachers, and friends who make all of this possible. For the last 6 decades, countless people have given their finances, prayers, talents, and time to Extend the Gift of Christian Education and build Valley Christian into the exceptional school it is today. As the name suggests, the Quest Ball’s purpose is to fund the programs that make Valley Christian School’s Quest for Excellence a reality. The money raised tonight will go to the WARRIOR FUND, which provides financial support to VCS’ A3 curriculum (Academic Achievement, Artistic Beauty, and Athletic Distinction), faculty and staff compensation, and our financial aid program, Youth with Promise. Your contributions tonight and throughout the year are the backbone of the quality, Christ centered education that VCS is able to provide each and every student. It is the type of education that produces Warriors: tomorrow’s leaders properly equipped to serve God and family while positively impacting their communities and the world. Thank you for your support; it is you that makes our ability to Extend the Gift of Christian education a reality. You truly are making a difference, and your support is greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Christi Stockhaus, Director of Advancement 3

IN APPRECIATION OF ALL OUR QUEST BALL COMMITTEE MEMBERS For the last 7 years, Jen LaBarbera and Cheryl Brashears have phenomenally led the Quest Ball since its inception. VCS is incredibly grateful for their vision, service, and leadership. While they have stepped down from that role, this year’s event could never be a success without the incredible legacy that they have built the previous six years. Jen and Cheryl, and all of the volunteers over the past years, thank you! This year, VCS staff and parents came together to ensure Quest Ball continued, even in this challenging year. While its certainly not the same, we are so thankful to be here tonight supporting our students, together. A BIG Thank you for the Quest Ball Team, made up of VCS staff and parents, who worked extra hard in a crazy year and adapted at every turn.

STAND UP FOR VALLEY’S KIDS “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” ~ Philippians 2:4 This is the opportunity to change a student’s life! Stand Up for Valley’s Kids is a very important function of the WARRIOR FUND, and the Quest Ball that supports it. The fund raises money for Valley Christian Schools’ Youth with Promise financial assistance program. Last year, Youth with Promise made it possible for almost 400 students to attend Valley Christian Schools. Without financial assistance, these student recipients could not attend Valley Christian Schools or benefit from the opportunities it affords. Youth with Promise not only ensures socio-economic diversity in our schools, it also changes lives. Tonight you will have an opportunity to give a direct donation to Youth with Promise. All funds raised during Stand Up for Valley’s Kids will be earmarked specifically for this program and the students whose lives it will change. Getting involved is simple. When prompted, you will simply donate to the level you choose on our BidPal Site - Click Here or (visit vcs.net/questball and find the donate button). It is a virtual representation of our commitment to these families and the generosity of our community supporting them. All donations are celebrated, as the power of this event is everyone working together to support our students, not just those who are able to donate at the highest levels. Donations start at $100. When the level reaches your desired contribution amount simply donate to our webpage. Should anyone wish to donate at a level of $25,000 or more, these funds will be used towards supporting 100% of the education costs for one of the students in our public/private school partnership, Junior University. These students will be carefully selected from a list facilitated by our public school partners in conjunction with San Jose’s Breakthrough organization. They will be students who are deemed to have the characteristics necessary for success at Valley Christian Schools, but who would not be able to attend without 100% support. This is the opportunity to truly change a child’s life and, as a bonus, your own. Please join us in what has become one of the most special moments of the Quest Ball. 11

LIVE AUCTION Item 30 Sushi Party for 20 People in Your Home For the past nine years, Sushi Randy, as he is known in the business, has changed the way the Bay Area enjoys sushi. When Sushi Confidential opened in downtown Campbell 2012, Randy Musterer brought his personal flair to this edible art form. By focusing on a fun, engaging atmosphere along with daring taste combinations, Randy has brought sushi to the public for a truly unique dining experience. With a second location in downtown San Jose, as well as concession pop-ups (pre-pandemic) at Shoreline Amphitheater and SAP Center/Shark Tank, Sushi Confidential is reaching even more Bay Area sushi lovers. Randy taught himself how to make sushi as a college student, then trained with first a Korean sushi chef, then a Japanese chef in the evenings, all while working as a Cancer Research Scientist for 17 years. Randy’s background in cancer research and infectious diseases has unknowingly put himself in a great position to help his restaurants and others pivot and plan accordingly during the COVID-19 pandemic. By combining his outgoing personality and passion for educating others with the artistry of sushi making, Randy has been able to channel his vision for Sushi Confidential into an award winning restaurant, with catering, corporate and sushi-making classes available for those who want to go further in their sushi adventures. Sushi Randy will prepare a Sushi Party in your home for up to 20 people. There is no Expiration Date on this item. Sushi Randy is donating his time and talent for this wonderful event.
