The WITS Gala was truly spectacular as we honored our former Board President, Xavier Peña! It was a fun and inspiring evening, that even included a group gala poem. Mayor Annise Parker introduced Andrew White as our city’s first-ever Youth Poet Laureate, and we heard stories from Andrew as well as three WITS students: Rukmini, Rafael, and Lila. Their words were a testament to the power of sharing our stories.
On behalf of everyone here at WITS, I want to extend a special thanks to our fearless leaders Juni and Chanler Langham, and our auction chair Mitra Woody. We exceeded our goal of $160,000, making this the largest fundraiser in WITS history! Because of you, even more students will be able to let their words FLY! WITS will provide an education that may be life-changing. We will give children the skills to express their ideas and the courage to speak from their hearts.
Thank you for making this possible!
