The WMS PTSA has historically held a Spring Auction fundraising event. The event has brought in almost half our annual fundraising goal, close to $100,000. The event included both a silent auction, live auction and Raise-the-Paddle and featured beer and wine, passed appetizers and a seated dinner.
While the event has been very successful in raising funds for WMS, it does not happen without a small army of volunteers and an enormous amount of work. As we adjust to becoming a smaller school and rebuild our volunteer forces, the PTSA has decided to take 2017-18 school year off from producing a full-scale fundraising auction comparable to years past.
What we need to move forward is a fundraising committee that can brainstorm ideas that will replace the lost revenue and appeal to the broader WMS community. If you have ideas or are interested in being part of this team, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
