Auction Events

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.
Thank you for joining us for our first virtual Gator Gala auction, and Raising Your Paddle for our Annie Wright Schools students and programs. 

This year's virtual format and complimentary registration provided an opportunity to include all of our AWS community, near and far. The online event included student performances and opportunities to support Annie Wright Schools and our students, auction packages and more.
