Special Items and Raffles
The ever popular Socialize With Spirit (SWS) Parties will again return for 2019!
This aspect of the event will feature a table of “sign-ups”—events, classes, or parties that auction goers pay a set amount to join. We are looking for hosts willing to share their homes and talents. Whether you host or sign up for an event, you’ll meet new friends from the SWS community and have a great time—and will be benefiting SWS in the process.
For those kids that just can't get enough of their teacher during regular school hours, bid on extracurricular fun with their favorite educator in experiences designed by SWS teachers.
