Help make West Sound Academy's successful college-preparatory programs possible by participating in our Annual Auction as a donor and attendee.  Embracing the tremendous growth our students achieve each year, the 2015 auction theme is "Diamonds in the Rough" celebrating the potential to shine that each student carries within. 

Five ways you can support the gems of West Sound Academy:


Live Auction

The Live Auction traditionally offers a select number of items for bid that are creative and often one-of-a-kind.  In the past these have included artwork, travel, entertainment, lodging, restaurants, electronics and outdoor adventures.  Lisa Gregg is the Chair of the Live Auction and can be reached at should you or someone you know have an idea for a donation.

Online and Silent Auction

New this fall is WSA's exciting teaser to the big night - the Online Auction!  Featuring wonderful gift items, artwork, services, gift certificates and just-in-time holiday shopping opportunities the online auction is an exciting way for more people to get involved.  Select specialty items will be held in reserve for the Silent Auction and will be available only on the night of the event.  Allyson Metters is the Chair of the Silent Auction.  You can contact her to request information or to make a donation at

 Volunteerism is also a wonderful way to support the event.  Jennifer Dennis is our Event Chair, and she can help determine how your energy can best support the fun and festivities!

Business Partnerships

 Businesses sponsor our auction, gaining exposure among guests who appreciate good food, travel, and art.  WSA will promote sponsoring businesses by providing a prominent display of their donations as well as recognition on the night of the auction and in advance publicity.  We will encourage members of our community to shop locally and support those who support the greater community.  For more information please contact Elizabeth Butler at
