The adult-only event on Saturday, April 8, at Bent Creek Country Club will be an elegant evening of food, auctions, and celebration to benefit student education and the community in the Warwick School District.

The evening begins with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction at 5:30 p.m. Dinner is served at 6:15 p.m., and the program and live auction follow.

The gala is a major fundraiser for the Foundation. This year’s event will feature a wide variety of silent and live auction items. Travel getaways, theater and concert tickets, food experiences, jewelry, furniture, sports tickets, pottery, art work, and more are all part of the offerings.

In mid-March, the items will be available for viewing on WarwickEF.org.

“Bidders will also have the opportunity to sponsor a WEF grant to enrich student education,” event co-chair, Dan Doremus added. “This is an excellent opportunity to have a direct impact on education for Warwick students.”

All proceeds from the gala will go toward funding grants for new, innovative educational programs, Experts in Residence, technology and more. The funds and programs provided are over and above the regular curriculum. This year, students and the community are benefiting from more than 20 programs representing over $189,000 to further engage, enrich, and empower Warwick students.

Tickets include the hors d’oeuvres, dinner stations, and auctions, and must be purchased in advance for $90 each. Cocktail attire is encouraged. Tickets may be purchased on line at WarwickEF.org or by contacting Barbara Mobley at 627-3306 or info@WarwickEF.org.
