When was the last time you left the house and enjoyed the company of others?
Actually, come to think of it when was the last time you left the house without long underwear?!! It has been a winter of extreme weather but Spring is just around the corner and to get you started come join our Spring Auction on Saturday, March 15th in Mt Airy, Philadelphia. On line bidding is LIVE NOW!!
The Spring Auction will be held on March 15th, 2014. The main goal of the auction of course is fundraising but we have gone to great lengths to make it special in many other ways. The evening is filled with promise, with live music performed by Jason Fifield, Sam Briger, Alicia Abrams and friends, a playlist made by Kim Walsh and DJ John Lee in the house – all talented parents or alumni parents. Gorgeous table runners hand-made by the fabulous Linette Kielinski; centerpieces made by our wonderful grades students featuring flourishing plants, and beverages donated by local brewing company, Victory and Kimberton Whole Foods.
Items for auction this year combine enjoyment from near and far. Naturally there are generous offerings from local shops and restaurants frequented by WSP parents but this year our efforts are even more far-reaching with day trips, weekend-jaunts and week-long vacations to get us out of the area and exploring new scenery and building new memories.
This year the children have gone above and beyond. With their very own little hands, each kindergarten class has contributed a special something for auction. Hand-painted silks, a basket woven from their own finger-knitting, to a hand-bound story book – each early childhood class has used skills developed at The Waldorf School of Philadelphia to make something magnificent. Preview auction items online here.
Funds raised from the auction will go towards our overall annual operating budget – this keeps the school alive and makes everything possible. In addition, there will be an opportunity to look towards the future and to 6000 Wayne Avenue our new permanent home. During the Fund-a-Need segment you can have a hand in ensuring our new home is well equipped.
And then there is the Dessert Dash! How could we forget? The Dessert Dash makes its second appearance this year with more detailed instructions so you can throw down and dash for the dessert that you want.
