Westminster Academy's annual dinner auction, Derby Day at WA, presented by Freeman Orthodontics, was a huge success. About 250 guests enjoyed southern fare, bid on exciting items and one lucky table won the drawing for the VIP table with their own private chef, VIP bag and express checkout! A portion of the evening was dedicated to honoring Dr. Ken Wackes and naming him Headmaster Emeritus, in appreciation for his 32 years of faithful service. All proceeds from the auction will be designated for renovating the Dr. Kenneth P. Wackes Media Center. To view pictures of Derby Day at WA, visit the WA Facebook page.
We praise God that through the generosity of His people, the gross proceeds for the event were nearly $150,000. We are also grateful to our alumni who provided a $15,000 matching gift for the heart raise, a picture of those who have gone before us, encouraging our current families to give.
Please patronize these businesses who supported the 2017 auction through their generous in-kind donations:
