THE FALLS CHURCH EDUCATION FOUNDATION’S fifth annual gala and silent auction fundraiser held at the Westin Gateway in Arlington last Friday night.
It drew both a record crowd and amount of money raised. More than 200 attended and over $75,000 was raised, including special contributions made on site for computers for the Wildon After School Program and for counselors for the Challenge Days scheduled for both George Mason High and Henderson Middle School next fall. Rousing entertainment was provided by the Mason High Jazz Band and also a quartet. State Del. Jim Scott and Arlington County Clerk Paul Ferguson were among the local celebrities present.
