2024 Highest Auction Proceeds In School History!

2024 Highest Auction Proceeds In School History!

We are thrilled to share that the 2024 Passport to Paris auction, presented by Benedetti Orthodontics, was our most successful auction ever! Together, we raised over $580,000, including $78,000 for the renovation of the Faculty Lounges. Our teachers are thrilled that this project will begin in early June!

Congratulations to Brent and Anastasha Steele, who won the $5000 tuition credit for next school year and thank you to all who purchased tickets for the drawing! With much to celebrate, we also have many to thank! 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/PREP parents who contributed to the class baskets and all the Lions Parent Association volunteers who put so much effort into making the event a success! This year, we had over 100 more items and 100 more people attending than our 2023 auction, and total proceeds outpaced last year’s all-time record of $523,000.

Special thanks to Little’s Photography for capturing the essence of the event! The auction photos are available at https://littlesphotography.pixieset.com/waauction2024/.
