Dear Wandell Families,
 
Thank you again for your support!! We are happy to announce that we grossed about $175,000 at our auction!! Since we know how hard it is to raise and make money, we used only 20% of the proceeds to cover our costs! That is a net of $145,000 all to benefit your children!   We also thought it would be a good time to provide a recap of the programs funded by the Foundation from September 2015 to date.
