Gala

Fall Gala Success

Thanks to everyone who supported the Washburn Fall Arts Gala on Nov. 19!  Your generous support helped us raise an estimated $30,000.  These funds will support your students with new flooring for the dance studio, guest artists in Black Box Theater, instruments for band and orchestra, a ceramic mural and more.  It was a great event with 260 attendees celebrating Washburn arts!  To see photos, visit https://www.flickr.com/photos/kfhjazz/albums/72157676763946066 (contact kevin@kevinhealy.com to order prints).
