Westerly's Annual Auction Fundraiser

The Westerly School auction is one of the school’s most important fundraisers, as well as a highly-anticipated celebration that comes around every spring! Just like the Annual Fund, the auction raises vital funds which directly impact the educational programs at Westerly, including our financial assistance program from which over 50% of Westerly families benefit.

   

The fundraiser features an in-person celebration (dinner, dancing, drinks, and entertainment) along with a silent and live auction with items for sale.

We appreciate all of the parents, faculty and staff, grandparents, current and past trustee members, founders, alumni, alumni parents and friends who support our community by donating!
