Foundation Updates
January 28, 2024


Congratulations to our students for wrapping up their semester! We hope they are relaxing and having fun this weekend. Thank you to families who attended the Parent Mixer and volunteered and donated to the very successful Pancake Breakfast. 

Gala Tickets Available Now: Our biggest annual fundraiser and party is on Saturday, March 2, 2024. Get gala tickets here: Venue capacity is LIMITED and we want to make sure you can get tickets – so buy early to secure your space in the biggest party of the year. Go together with friends by securing a table. West Campus staff attend for free, and we are working on providing discounted tickets. 

The amazing band, Love + Honey, will return again for the gala. We are very much looking forward to it. And this year’s menu includes hors d’oeuvres, chicken, salmon, vegan BBQ pulled jackfruit, potatoes, salad, and a fun and lovely dessert auction.

Sponsorships: Do you know of a local business, friend, or family member that would want to help support West Campus by sponsoring the Gala? Let us know! There are many benefits to sponsoring our biggest fundraiser of the year, and sponsorships help us raise even more money for the school. Contact Karen Lewis for more information:
