Fall Gala 2011—Event Report and Thanks

To all our Fall Gala 2011 attendees, sponsors, donors, and volunteers we extend a hearty thank you! Our 5th Annual Fall Fundraiser was held at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center on November 5, 2011. It was an elegant evening that featured live and silent auctions, games and prizes, raffles, food and wine by the Marx Brothers, live jazz, and fabulous company. Our gala theme, “Passion and Purpose,” was chosen to reflect the commitment of our community as we celebrated 19 years as a school. Thanks to your support, to your “passion and purpose,” it was a spectacular evening.

Through this event the school raised over $115,000, including over $40,000 donated specifically during “fund-a-need,” which focused on the heart and soul of our school—our teachers! We could not have achieved this without your generosity.

Thank you for investing in our children and helping to ensure that the Anchorage Waldorf School continues to be a growing and thriving source of independent education in Alaska. We hope you will join us at future events in the years to come.
