Spring Gala 2014

Online auction extended to Sunday, April 6, 8 p.m.

Thank You for Another Successful Gala!

Despite the rain (pouring rain), this Saturday’s gala was a great success. We raised almost $85,000 for the operating budget, financial aid, and the drama and movement programs. Over 130 WWS families and friends gathered in the beautiful St. Francis Hall to celebrate and support our school. Robert Coleman and his trio welcomed our guests to a cocktail reception showcasing the food of Chef Eron’s Foxhall Catering with a silent auction.  The live auction was lively with some good competitive energy and most everyone joined in the dancing and conga line!

Set-up and clean up for the gala was seamless, in no small part due to the help of parents Philip Bechman, Jack and Cecilia Benson, Jimmy Daukas and Meg Royce, Craig Ludtke, Felecia Desrosiers and JoseLo Gutierrez, Carolyn, Nelson, and Thea Crouch, Susan and Michael Barr, Hope Lambrecht, Adriana Gomez, and Noel Bicknell. Thank you for your great dedication to our gala.

Conversations have already begun about next year’s gala, on March 28, 2015 and how we will best honor our 45th Anniversary!  Mark your calendars now, and let us know if you have any ideas.
