I don’t know if you know this, but DASH’s annual “Taste of Design” gala is just around the corner (you did save that November 12th date, right?)
This fundraiser is put on by countless volunteers from the PTSA and the money that’s raised benefits your students at DASH. So now that you’re chomping at the bit to volunteer yourself, here are 4 ways you can help your kid’s school:

Ranked the #2 high school in Florida (#20 in the nation according to US News) this school crafts young artists into unbelievable creative powerhouses in architecture, fashion design, film, graphic design, and industrial Design.
The art these kids put out is nothing less than inspiring and the spirit of collaboration and cooperation is jaw dropping. It’s not the easiest magnet school to get into (you’ll need a killer portfolio) and the admissions process is made up out of a live drawing audition, a review of said portfolio and an interview of the student (…)
