The eveningâ€™s program will be hosted by special guest emcee and Plymouth resident, Tim McNiff of KARE 11.
The silent auction will run from 6:30 â€“ 8:30 p.m. with a short program following – then, dancing to live music from the always popular UNBRIDLED, a Wayzata parent rock band. A dinner/hors dâ€™oeuvres buffet and cash bar will be available all night long.
This event raises funds to benefit Academics, Arts, Activities and Athletic programs for students. In years past, the Gala has raised an average of $60,000 or more which allows students, who otherwise would not be able, to participate in these programs. Revenue from the Gala will always be applied to the following yearâ€™s needs.
A large portion of the money raised is disbursed through the high schoolâ€™s Fund-A-Need Program to provide students with financial need, the opportunity to receive supplies, project money, lessons, clothing, calculators and items they could not otherwise afford. These funds are disbursed under the direction of Y.E.S. Director, Mary Kay Williams, the WHS Counselors and Social Workers, based upon input from our staff regarding student need.
What a wonderful gift from the community to extra-curricular activities â€“ the second half of a quality educational program. For more information, to donate an item,
