About the Gala & Auction

SWS_GALA_2016Come join us for the 19th Annual SWS Gala & Auction.  This years’ auction will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2016 at the St. Mark’s Church located at 301 A St SE, Washington, DC.

School Within School’s 19th Gala & Auction is an adults-only evening of live music from Music on the Hill’s violinist Enrique Reynosa, and guitarist Erik Tans, and SWS’s own James Castañeda on cello. This event includes live auction, silent auction, heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer, and wine. The success of the parent-run Gala and Auction is absolutely vital to the school’s success.

Every dollar raised from this event goes to SWS. Reaching our goal depends on the generosity of SWS friends, families, businesses, and community members. Auction proceeds and charitable giving have supplemented school technology, teacher development, the swssuncatcherscost for teaching assistants, the music, dance and art programs, as well as classroom supplies.

This event open to everyone; even if you do not have a child at the school (or children at all) please still consider supporting this amazing cause—a strong education for children will further strengthen our vitality as a community and more importantly, for our children’s future.  Purchase your ticket now and join us for a fantastic evening.

For more information about the auction or to volunteer, please contact chair, Genevieve Sapir at auctionSWS@gmail.com.
