The WES Auction Gala, a tradition since 1988, is the biggest social event of the year for adults. The community comes together to celebrate on an evening in early spring to enjoy hors d’oeuvres, Silent and Live Auctions, a special video, a seated dinner, and dancing. Join in the planning a find a committee that interest you. Funds raised go toward the operating budget, including financial aid, and the Raise Your Paddle appeal supports a special project based on the needs of the school that benefits our students. Through the generosity of Auction Raise Your Paddle donors, new STEM space is being constructed and will be completed in March 2020, and new science classroom equipment and furnishings are in place for this school year. Other past projects have included playground and sport court upgrades, performing arts enhancements, and procuring new technology, a school bus, Orff instruments, and band storage units.
This year’s Auction Co-Chairs, Mehdi Elkassem and Samira Woodings, are enthusiastically leading our committee of volunteers to create an unforgettable experience! The exciting theme will be revealed in November.
