For the Kids Dinner and Auction

On March 9, 2019, the 15th annual FOR THE KIDS Dinner and Auction was held at the Smithfield Center in Smithfield, VA. The support of sponsors, donors, and attendees of this year’s gala, allowed us to raise over $100,000.00 for Isle of Wight Academy. Proceeds from the 2019 FOR THE KIDS event will provide assistance in purchasing Chromebooks for students in grades 5-12, will help to finance the purchase of new playground equipment for our Lower School, and will allow Isle of Wight Academy to begin updating our existing classroom buildings. Thank you to everyone who continues to make this a wonderful event to benefit our school FOR THE KIDS!

Be sure to mark your calendars now for next year’s event slated for March 14, 2020.If you are interested in serving on our gala committee, are interested in being a sponsor, or have an item to donate to our live or silent auctions, please contact Mary Margaret Wells at
