Foundation Gala

As most of you know, the Bands of Wando Foundation was set up to benefit the schools in our area….an information letter was sent by Mr. Scott detailing much of what they do and the impact that they have on our Middle Schools. The Foundation is hosting a Gala on Friday February 15th on the Yorktown---and it's a Mardi Gras theme! There will be a silent auction as well as several really cool items for the Live Auctions! Below is a link to purchase tickets---please order today and support this awesome organization!!
