WAEF's annual events are an important part of our fundraising efforts as well as a way to celebrate the accomplishments of Wyomissing Area faculty, staff, students and community members.
We look forward with optimism to the return of our annual events during the 2020-2021 school year.
Please see below for information about recent WAEF events!
WAEF's first-ever online auction exceeded our expectations! Thank you to our sponsors, donors, and event planning volunteers for all you did to make this year's event a success. A special thanks to the 82 active bidders who participated in the online auction!
This year's "Toast" series - originally planned as the Blue & White Party and Fire & Ice Party - shifted to an online auction event. The COVID-19 crisis presented unique challenges in our fundraising efforts, but we are encouraged and inspired by the generosity of businesses and individuals in our community who fulfilled – and in some cases, exceeded - their commitment to support WAEF through sponsorship of and donations to this auction event, even in such difficult times. Auction bidding was robust and surpassed our expectations!
With your support, we were able to net over $60,000 total, including $12,000 for this year's Fund-a-Need project, the sound system for the JSHS Auditorium!
On behalf of the Board of Directors of WAEF as well as the hard-working planning committee, thank you so much for your generosity! Your support ensures our ability to continue to provide grants to enhance educational opportunities in the Wyomissing Area School District.
We look forward to seeing you at our events during the
2020-2021 school year as we're able to schedule them!
Each year as part of the Toast series of events, WAEF honors outstanding teachers and staff members.
This year, we were unable to recognize them in person, but we are grateful for all they do in the Wyomissing Area School District!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF THE 2019-2020 WAEF HONOREES!
In September 2019, thanks to the generosity of our hosts,
Alissa & Peter Carlino, almost 100 guests enjoyed catered food and drinks and live music while celebrating the launch of a children's book written & illustrated by WASD's own WREC Principal, Dr. Corbett Babb and art teacher, Mr. Mike Miller.
Guests received a signed copy of Melody's Gift, and all party proceeds benefited WAEF.
Thank you to Corbett, Mike, and our hosts for thinking of WAEF!
