The Wellington School 40th Anniversary Gala is quickly approaching! This special event on Saturday, April 1, 2023 from 6:30 to 10 p.m. will celebrate more than four decades of our school's steadfast dedication to innovative education. 

The evening's festivities will include:

  • Silent Auction - Online bidding has begun and will close on April 1 at 10:00 p.m. Most items will be available to view at the event, but the auction will remain online so you do not have to attend to win your favorite items!
  • Fund-a-Need - At the gala, guests will have the opportunity to help raise important dollars for tuition assistance. Paddles can be raised for donations at the following levels: $5,000, $2,500, $1,000, and $500 in honor of a faculty member. If you are unable to attend or you wish not to raise your paddle, donations can also be made on this site.
  • Live Auction - Grab your paddles and get ready to bid on these incredible, unique packages! Items can be viewed in more detail below or on the live auction item page.
