07 Mar Annual Dinner Auction Sets A New Record!
On Friday, March 1, A Night Under the Big Top gave way to big contributions to WA! We anticipate the generous giving from our annual dinner auction will be a net total of over $224,000, surpassing last year’s record by $76,258! During the event, we fully funded our new Collaboratory and raised over $168,000 for our Annual Fund.
With much to celebrate, we also have many to thank. First, this event would not be possible without the generous in-kind donations of local businesses. In addition, we thank those who solicited these businesses on behalf of WA. We are also grateful to the Lower School parents who contributed to the class baskets. After spring break, we will award PK2 and second grade with ice cream parties for the greatest participation. Middle school students who brought in a contribution will also get an ice cream party.
Once again, we want to thank our Presenting Sponsor, Benedetti Orthodontics, and all our event sponsors: All American Windows and Doors, Lighthouse Point Yacht Club, the Taylor Family, Dry Concepts, the Foundation for Christian Living, A2 Events, Advanced Stucco, Aetna, Benchmark Financial Group LLC, D. James Kennedy Foundation, Jimmy Branham Real Estate Team, JVR Ingrasci Impact Windows and Doors, License to Chill/American Standard, Sapoznik, Insurance, Cammarata & Cammarata P.L., Chick-fil‑A Fort Lauderdale, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Eric Harden, Realtor, and Marker Construction. Finally, we are grateful for all those who attended the event, volunteered their time and talents, and gave generously.
