Auction party


The “Keep Calm and Lakewood On” Auction Party, sponsored by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, kicks off the 43rd Annual Lakewood Home Festival. The Festival, hosted by the Lakewood Early Childhood Parent Teacher Association (LECPTA) and has raised funds since 1976 for three East Dallas public schools: Lakewood Elementary School, J.L. Long Middle School, and Woodrow Wilson High School. 2018 was a record-breaking year, and proceeds directly benefit the students through the purchase of essential school materials, computers and enrichment programs.


“Keep Calm and Lakewood On” is set on the rails of the London Underground. Guests will get to see the sights – the London Eye, Big Ben, London Bridge and even the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace – without ever leaving Dallas!

The auction will feature a seated dinner banquet and both a live and silent auction. An 11-piece band, Professor D – a Jordan Kahn Music Company Band–will provide smashing music for partygoers.

The annual auction party sells out every year, so be sure to grab your tickets quickly!
