Silent and Live Auction

2023 Goal |  $50,000

As a non-profit, the proceeds from the live and silent auction benefit the Wood Rose Academy General Fund, and are designed to subsidize student tuition and general operations. 


In addition to the live and silent auction, the Wood Rose Academy and Preschool Parents Association hosts a lively and engaging Fund-A-Need. This year’s funds raised during this portion of the event will help us achieve our goals for specially designated projects that help enhance and contribute to the culture and experience of all Wood Rose families. On February 13th, the WRAP Parents Association will vote on the projects needed which may include replacement of athletic equipment, portable outdoor seating, outdoor speaker systems, etc.
