An Evening Under the Big Top was a spectacular success with more than 360 attendees, 81 silent auction items, five live auction items, juggling and dancing, and, most importantly, an amazing core of parent volunteers giving countless hours.

The result? $90,000 raised in support of financial aid – making a WT education available to students who would otherwise be unable to attend.

“The WT community continues to inspire me. Through hard work (and a whole lot of fun!) we came together to support the very real need of raising financial aid dollars. This dedication allows us to be true to our Mission and to continue our work to create a truly inclusive community. I am so grateful to everyone who made this evening possible.”

–Dr. Scott D. Fech, Head of School
