The Friends of West Hollywood Elementary (FOWHE), past winner of the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Creative Community Service Award, will hold its 9th Annual Gala Auction on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at the iconic Phyllis Morris Showroom in West Hollywood.
Every year FOWHE, a 501c(3) charitable parent organization of West Hollywood Elementary (a public school within the Los Angeles Unified School District) must raise more than $500,000 to maintain the many extra programs because the District provides us less than $20,000 per year. That figure is not a typo! The school district provides less than $20,000 (excluding teacher salaries) to educate over 400 children. These extras include: physical education, music, art, technology, field trips, and teachers’ aides for our youngest students, playground supervision, and a school librarian. One thing that sets us apart from other public elementary schools is our extraordinary relationship with our community and, more importantly, the West Hollywood business community, including the Sunset Business Improvement District, West Hollywood Design District, and the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
Last year we raised more than $125,000 through our Annual Gala Auction, and we hope you will help us exceed this by considering making a donation to our 9th Annual Gala Auction. Your donation will be seen by over 400 grateful and loyal families in the West Hollywood and Beverly Hills Post Office demographics. Should you decide to be a sponsor, the banners on San Vicente Blvd. will be seen by 13,000 commuters traveling on San Vicente between Sunset Boulevard and Cynthia Avenue each day.
The word is out about all of the amazing items we auctioned last year so we are expecting an even larger crowd and more passionate bidding at our upcoming auction. Be part of our event, consider making a donation or sponsoring us at one of the following levels.
