Annie Wright’s annual auction events provide opportunities for the whole community to come together to celebrate our schools and our students. All of the proceeds from these fantastically fun fundraising events help ensure that our students have the facilities, faculty, and resources they need to succeed.
Please contact Maggie Eliel to learn about opportunities to sponsor, support or volunteer.
