We Are the World Auction 2015

THANK YOU

Our deepest thanks to everyone that had even a small part in helping to put this very successful event together. It was a wonderful, fun and crazy evening that will not soon be forgotten. We had 269 attendees at the Bellevue Westin and over 30 volunteers from various other elementary schools, high schools, middle schools and community organizations.

PHOTOS

A professional photographer was on site from Pro Photo Group (many thanks to them for this and for the fun photo booth!) They captured some great candid shots of the evening -- take a look:
