Fall Gala 2013—Event Report and Thanks

To all our Fall Gala 2013 attendees, sponsors, donors, and volunteers we extend a hearty thank you! Our 7th Annual Fall Fundraiser was held at Alaska Native Heritage Center on November 16, 2013. With the beautiful backdrop of the Heritage Center, orchestral music by our talented Mary Schallert, Amy Lou Hettinger, Bev Short and company, wonderful food, beer donated by the King Street Brewing Company, fun raffles and auctions and friends all around, the evening really did resonate with love and appreciation – for our children, for Waldorf education, for our school and for each other.

Our gala theme, “Supporting Paths to Independence,” was chosen to reflect how, with our support, our children can follow their own paths to reach their full potential. Thank you for “supporting those paths” at the Anchorage Waldorf School through your support of our Gala. Through this event the school raised approximately $100,000, including $46,000 donated specifically during “fund-a-need,” which will be applied to the enrichment and professional development of our wonderful teachers in ways such as mentorship programs and pedagogical training. We could not have achieved this without your generosity.

Thank you for investing in our children and helping to ensure that our independent Anchorage Waldorf School continues to thrive and grow as Alaska’s leader in Waldorf education. We hope you will join us at future events in the years to come.
