The Silent Auction

Since 1993, the Whitefish Bay Public Education Foundation has served the Whitefish Bay community and public school system by providing funding to enhance educational opportunities for our students. We are kicking off our 2019 fundraising effort with our ever-successful Bay Ball. Beginning with the first Bay Ball held in 1995, the money raised by the event is responsible for over $1,000,000 of financial support; providing the funding for a variety of educational initiatives in Whitefish Bay Schools. This year the funds raised by the Bay Ball will support the Middle School’s new Library Media Center. The Library Media Center will provide students and teachers with a cutting-edge collaborative learning space, combining literacy, technology, and interdisciplinary curriculum. All of this in a welcoming space, large enough to accommodate multiple classes at a time. The Middle School update is the first in a series of planned improvements to be made in all of our schools’ Library Media Centers. The School District of Whitefish Bay is proud to be the top district in the state of Wisconsin. Please help us continue to support the best possible educational experience for our students.

Bay Ball 2019 is sure to be a night to remember. The event will be held Saturday, May 11th at the Historic Pritzlaff Building in the Third Ward. Featuring live entertainment, delicious food and drink, an auction and 500 generous guests, our event is a great way to highlight your business, service, or goods and reach potential new customers. All donations and businesses will be featured in our event program, FaceBook page, and on our website,

Your generosity will help support the best possible education for Whitefish Bay students. We thank you for your kind consideration.
