Star Gazer's Gala, May 13, 2017 -
Thank you to all who attended and participated in the Gala, live and silent auction. We are so grateful for your support of this event and for your generous support of our financial aid program. Through your gifts, we raised over $90,000 for our financial aid program. This is an incredible vote of confidence in the mission and vision of the Washington Waldorf School, and will allow WWS to continue to set aside over $1M of its operating budget to meet the financial needs of families who desire a Waldorf education for their children. Thank you!
