For the past 43 years, LECPTA has held an annual Auction with one simple goal: to raise fundamental revenue for the East Dallas school’s operating budgets including, Lakewood Elementary School, J.L. Long Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School.
The 2018 Auction Party, “Lakewood Takes a Bite Out of New York,” is a seated dinner banquet with live and silent auctions along with live music entertainment from Jordan Kahn and his party orchestra. Premiere party tickets will be $250, and general admission tickets will be $150, both including the dinner and an “all-weekend pass” with access to the home tour and candlelight tour. Guests should dress in their favorite New York-themed attire.
The annual auction party sells out every year and generates a significant portion of funds raised, in part through ticket sales, and also via live and silent auctions. Each year, local businesses and community partners donate generous auction offerings to fit every budget.
Hosted by the LECPTA, the entire Lakewood Home Festival weekend is a community-wide event that supports a great cause–East Dallas schools and students. The funds raised directly benefit East Dallas students by making it possible for them to experience an exceptional offering of enrichment programs, computers, new classroom environments, and school material.
From the “Lakewood Takes a Bite Out of New York” Auction Party on Friday night to the beautiful and treasured Lakewood homes on the tour to the intimate Saturday evening Candlelight Tour, LECPTA’s 43rd annual home festival weekend is a can’t miss event.
