2016-17 Events

12th Annual Gala March 3, 2017 Captain Bill's

Twelfth Annual Gala held March 13, 2017
We are sponsoring our Eleventh Annual Gala on March 3, 2017. This event will be held at Captain Billís in the Bayview House in Bay Shore. The Gala promises to be an exciting evening where we will honor two members of the West Islip Community: Kevin Murphy, Education Honoree, and Joseph DeCarlo, Community Honoree. The events of the night will include dinner, dancing, and a number of raffles with something of interest for all 275 of our guests.

With your support, PAWS intends to follow the precedent of other Education Foundations around the country in providing assistance to the district through money and services that it may not otherwise be eligible to receive, such as corporate grants and fundraising dollars. PAWS is a not-for-profit organization completely run by your West Islip neighbors. Through our volunteer efforts, we will be able to use private funding to assist the district in providing a positive learning atmosphere for our students.

Please show your support by placing an ad in our journal. If you have any questions regarding PAWS, journal ads or reservations for the Gala, please contact us. We thank you in advance for your generous support. We hope that you will join us in celebrating our community and contributing to the future of West Islip education through this investment in our children.
