For those of you who joined us on Friday night for our 2017 fundraiser, we extend our heartfelt thanks! When we set out to take on this auction, our goal was always two-fold: create an event that brings our community together for a fun night in celebration of our dedicated teachers and Wedgwood community, and raise money to create or maintain programs that help our kids continue on a path of success at Wedgwood. Please pat yourselves on the back for helping us achieve both of those things.
With your help, we raised $120,000 this year!
This amount not only allows the school to continue on its path of fulfilling its mission and vision but, through the Raise the Paddle portion of the evening – which accounted for $30,000 of the grand total – will also allow for upgrades to be made to our Wedgwood playground, helping kids to engage in a variety of play options for all ages and interests, and brightening up our space!
This level of fundraising is not possible without the support of a generous community. From those of you who were part of the planning committee, to those of you who answered our many calls to action, we feel truly fortunate to be part of this Wedgwood family.
With much gratitude,
Holly Sommer & Nicole Ross
