¡Una Fiesta FUNdraiser Exitosa! (A Successful Fiesta FUNdraiser!)

Thanks to the generous contributions and efforts of this dedicated community, the DVWS Raffle and ¡Fiesta FUNdraiser! netted over $40,000 in profit for our school! THANK YOU ALL for selling those raffle tickets and coming to the event. It is the involvement of so many that allows us to succeed. We hope that all in attendance enjoyed the evening and congratulations to all of the winners. Special thanks goes out to all who donated their time, talents or goods, from setup to clean up, food prep to serving and bartending, margaritas to coffee, advertising to auctioneering and check-in to check-out. We could not have done it without you! Scroll down to enjoy many photos from auction night, after taking a look at our lucky auction winners!
