Signature Fundraising Events

Bringing the GWA Community Together

GWA's signature fundraising events aren't just a great way to support the Bulldog community – they're also a great way to make new friends, meet your neighbors and drum up a little school spirit! With several events scheduled throughout the year, you're never very far away from a good time with fellow Bulldogs at a signature fundraiser.

Lucky Dawg Gala & Benefit Auction

The Lucky Dawg Gala and Benefit Auction occurs every year in late winter. It’s a fun and social night of great food, entertainment and good-natured competition – all in the spirit of supporting George Walton Academy. Events of the evening include a welcoming reception, dinner, music and dancing, and live auction bidding. 

On Saturday, February 22, 2020, 5:30-11 p.m., we will host our Golden Gala as a continued celebration of 50 years of GWA. Tickets for the gala go on sale in January. Online bidding for silent auction items will open on Saturday, February, 8.

For more information about donating items to the auction or sponsorship opportunities for the Lucky Dawg Gala, please contact Savanna McMichael in the Advancement Department. 



Dawgs Unleashed 

Dawgs Unleashed is an annual community event hosted by Dawgs 360 that’s open to the public. It consists of several smaller events that are typically spread out over the course of one week. Registration for the various components of Dawgs Unleashed typically opens in August and continues up through the day of the event. For more information about our Dawgs Unleashed events, please contact Elizabeth McDonel.
