Join Us for OLW School’s Gala: A Year for the Blue & White

Posted on February 10, 2021 by Published by

Our Lady of the Wayside School is proud to announce our largest school fundraiser, A Year for the Blue & White, also known as The Gala, on February 27, 2021.  The fun kicks off at 7:00 pm with the virtual presentation.

The Gala will not look the same this year, but we are reminded that we are one community focused on giving our children the best educational experience possible. While our dedicated families work together toward achieving this goal, we also ask for help and support from local businesses and individuals within our community. The money raised at the Gala is used to fund vital Family & School Association programs that support the students, teachers, and The Annual Fund. These funds are heavily relied upon to support the school’s mission statement to enrich our students’ minds, foster a deep and meaningful faith in each child, and expand their talents.

The Gala proceeds help fund the services of a licensed school counselor; reimbursements to teachers for classroom expenses and professional development; the cost of field trips, cultural assemblies, and special days for students; continuously update technology in the classroom, among many other resources for students and teachers. These are just a few examples of how important your donations are towards the success of our students.

For anyone unfamiliar, the Gala usually consists of a fun evening of dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions, raffles, and much more. We are working on some great events to keep the spirit of The Gala going for 2021 virtually. More information will be sent out about:

Our children are the foundation of this great community. Their success is due, in part, from the love, support, and encouragement they receive from the people who believe in them. It truly is an investment in the future of our community!

We thank you in advance for supporting our efforts.

The Gala Co-Chairs,
Vita Massarelli, Tricia Miller, Cara Mueller & Tanya Petermann
