The Wyndcroft Auction is a vital fundraising event that supports our students and faculty. It brings Wyndcroft together for an evening of celebration and community while raising crucial funds for our school. This year's Wyndcroft 2023 Auction was held on Saturday, May 6, 2023, and it was a night to remember!
Guests at the Auction enjoyed delicious catering from Russo's Food and Market from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, and live entertainment from Wes Johnson, Wyndcroft class of 2013. The Silent Auction included a variety of items such as vacation packages, VIP sporting tickets, cooking classes, autographed sports jerseys, country club dining memberships, Broadway series season tickets, and much more. The Live Auction featured a series of Wyndcroft exclusives like Head of School for the Day, Car Line Royalty, Front Row Seats at every performance, and the coveted Grandparents' Day VIP Package.
One of the highlights of the evening was the Raise the Paddle initiative, where funds were raised to benefit a specific need for the School. This year's Raise the Paddle focused on the visual, music, and performing arts classrooms, with a goal of raising $55,000 to revitalize the classrooms.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Wyndcroft community, we exceeded our fundraising goal for Raise the Paddle, raising an impressive $68,000. These funds will directly benefit the education of Wyndcroft's students, greatly enhancing their experiences in the visual and performing arts programs with enough remaining to reimagine the Marshall House playground.
We are deeply grateful to everyone who participated in the Wyndcroft 2023 Auction, whether by donating an auction item, bidding on items, or contributing to the Raise the Paddle initiative. Your support makes a significant difference in the lives of our students and faculty, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
