As some of you might have already noticed, we distributed posters around the school yesterday promoting our Culture of Giving Fundraising Event entitled “Art and Music Extravaganza” and scheduled for June 5, 2021.
Together with the active support of our PTO, we would like to tentatively plan for this live open-air event on the territory of ASW. The final decision if a live event is feasible will be confirmed during the second week of May. The decision to go ahead will depend on how to safely provide this for our community following the safety protocols that have been so successful at school. Factors to consider in order to proceed with the event involved community spread assessment, government guidelines and restrictions, school community parameters, current health advisors’ recommendations, and general feedback from ASW stakeholders.
If we decide against a live event, then we would still have an Art and Music Extravaganza Fundraising Event, but in an online format. Please rest assured that if we do decide to proceed with a live event, it will be orchestrated with the highest standard of personal safety and following all COVID-19 mitigation protocols.
One of the main aspects of the Art and Music Extravaganza Fundraising will be a silent auction of various art pieces. So if you, a member of your family, or friends are artists, we encourage you to create and donate art for the auction. As well, if you have a good piece of art at home that you are thinking of replacing, also, please consider donating it to this Fundraising Event. We are looking to auction paintings, photographs, ceramics, sculptures, and any other form of artistic expression. A portion of the proceeds from the silent auction will go towards supporting art and music education at an orphanage that ASW currently supports. Details on where art donations can be delivered will be communicated after the May holidays on the event website, accessible through the QR code found on the poster and here: https://www.aswarsaw.org/giving/events
This first Culture of Giving Fundraising Event will become an active part of our mission to be a community determined to “change the world for the better.”
