2020 Win BIG With Wylie

A HUGE thank you to everyone who bid on silent auction items, bought raffle tickets or donated to our cause during our Win BIG With Wylie campaign. It was a huge success!

The winner of our Big Green Egg Raffle was Gregg Valentine.

The winner of our Sports Raffle was Rachel Keesee.

The winner of our autographed Hugh Sandifer Football was Robert Hanna.

We are still a bit shy of what we need to fund scholarships, grants and new teacher gift cards, so if you missed our event, your donation would still be a blessing. Click on the purple donate button at the top of the page!
