The money we raise during the auction is prioritized to fund the “All Night Graduation Celebration”, organized and staffed by some 200 parent volunteers. The event is a safe, chaperoned, memory-filled night in an alcohol and drug free environment for the graduating class of AHS. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) conceived the idea of an all-night alcohol and drug-free graduation party several years ago. Since its inception, the number of senior fatalities on graduation night has dropped significantly. With your support, we can continue to bring the number of fatalities down and provide our seniors with an evening to remember. Expenses for an All Night Graduation Party for a class of over 450 students are enormous. While ticket sales to seniors help defray some of the cost of the evening, we try and keep ticket prices affordable so that all our seniors are able to attend.
Any additional funds raised during the auction will benefit the programs PTSA offers to the entire Annandale community. The PTSA funds teacher training, student scholarships, cultural events, family outreach programs, transportation for field trips, student recognition programs, the school newsletter and other special programs. In short, your participation helps us to provide programs and opportunities that are not funded by Fairfax County.
