We extend our deepest gratitude to the many people who attended, donated, and bid on auction items at this year’s Black & White Gala. Our party for a purpose was a success. We were so happy to be back together in person in a new venue.

Check out what you missed here.

Before you know it, it will be time once again to get dressed up and join us for this special evening to support grants that benefit every student in the Wauwatosa School District. All are welcome as we gather again May 6, 2023 at the Renaissance Hotel, 2300 Mayfair Road. The annual Black & White Gala features music, dancing, wine pull, silent and live auctions, raffles, seated dinner, and a cash bar. Anyone can sign up to bid or donate.

Donate to the Black & White Gala

We’re always looking for auction items

The EFW invites students, parents, alumni, friends, businesses and corporations to support the Black & White Gala by donating goods or services to be offered in our silent or voice auctions. The success of this event depends upon the creative and interesting items we receive. Join us by donating an item, experience or gift certificate.

Here are a few ideas for you to consider:

  • airline tickets
  • exclusive gift baskets
  • jewelry
  • vacation homes
  • sporting/event tickets
  • restaurant packages
  • special services
To donate an item, please complete and submit a Auction Donor Form that can be found here.



One way for you to be a part of the Black & White Gala is to contribute to a group donation in the name of your school PTA/PTO. School PTA/PTO leaders are coordinating their efforts to make a contribution to the auction. It’s an easy way to make a donation and make a generous impact.

Participation and the amount of your donation are, of course, optional and completely up to you. Your gift is greatly appreciated and is a way you can support your student’s education.
