For the Kids Dinner and Auction

For the Kids Dinner and Auction

Isle of Wight Academy is proud that for 18 years, we have been able to hold our FOR THE KIDS event. Over the past two years, the event has been held virtually but this year, we combined the best of both worlds- holding an in-person event and an online auction as well. It has become a tradition for many to gather and Celebrate the Night in Red and White in support of Isle of Wight Academy and our amazing students and staff and this year yielded amazing results netting over $65,000 for IWA!. This event will enable our teachers and staff to continue to have the resources they need to provide the best opportunities possible for our students. By working together with our school community and the community at large, IWA has proven that we are “Charger Strong” and will continue in our mission of being “A Family Inspiring Excellence”. Proceeds from this year’s event will support the capital improvement plan for the renovations to all of our classroom buildings and additional advances in technology and programs at IWA. A big thank you to the sponsors listed below, to all our attendees,and all the donors to our auction who helped make this wonderful evening for IWA possible!
