WCS Lions’ Gala raises record amount

(Continued)

During the program, guests enjoyed a catered meal from Copper Creek Restaurant and live entertainment from Childbloom Guitar program’s advanced students, as well as a solo performance from its director, Kevin Townson.

WCS brought the evening to a close with an informational video about the school that featured one of its families. Attendees then had an opportunity to give to the school’s scholarship program titled “Partners for Progress.” This program gives families that desire a Christian education the opportunity to do so if they are unable to or experience a hardship during their time at WCS. This portion of the evening raised an additional $30,000 in a matter of 15 minutes.

“We could not be more pleased with the outcome of this year’s gala,” stated Director of Development Leslie Chalmers. “Each year we strive to give our guests and supporters an evening of fun and excitement with top rate service, but also continue to educate them on the mission of WCS and the strides we are making towards preparing our students for becoming leaders of tomorrow. We feel truly blessed and so appreciative that this event just keeps getting bigger each year and that people want to be a part of helping these students and teachers. It is so exciting to watch.”
