Gala

Thank you for a successful 2021 Auction & Gala!

The 2021 WMS Auction and Gala was an incredibly inspiring display of connection, commitment and community for our school. Thank you to those who joined us for the livestream event, helped out with all the planning and production, donated to Raise the Paddle for teachers, fulfilled classroom wish lists, and shared heartfelt videos and photos of appreciation for our faculty and staff. We are grateful to you for showing up for WMS!

Together, this is what we accomplished:

  • $119,000 net total raised for WMS! Of that, over $87,000 will go toward supporting our teachers and staff in professional development and training (social emotional learning, diversity, equity and inclusion, additional AMS certification and more).
  • $9,700 raised to support classroom wish lists
  • 31 Silent and Live auction donors
  • 100+ Raise the Paddle donors
  • 2 event sponsors (Thank you, Bettina Chaiken & Empire Home Remodeling)
  • 30+ volunteers
  • 100 households joined the livestream event

Our deepest gratitude goes to our Auction and Gala committee, volunteers and staff for all their steadfast efforts this year making this such a spectacular event. We couldn’t have done it without you.
