After the last candle was lit, Visions Event Center glowed with the luminescence of celebration as focus was given to our students and staff’s splendor of art displayed in our Gallery 861. Students offered a dramatic touch to the evening as they hosted attendees to the evening’s events, provided mastered skills with a symphony of harmonious orchestra sounds, and offered unique blends of styling vocals which echoed throughout the affair. The Foundation for Winona Area Public School’s Fire and Ice Gala attendees were able to peruse the Winona Fare as lucky bidders went home with a treasure trove of donated items from our Silent Auction. Two specialty dessert tables offered delectable mouth-watering delights, and Foundation supporters marveled at the centerpiece art up for bid.
The 2013 Fire and Ice Gala was a community in celebration of the Foundation and schools, with a common goal to enrich and expand educational opportunities in Winona Area Public Schools by supporting important programming, projects, and technology. As the night drew to a soft glow of closer, the Foundation celebrates ardent appreciation for the opportunity to embrace our schools and students, and raised over $33,000 to help continue to enhance our goals.
