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, as well as silent and live auction bidding. 

The GWA 2020 Golden Gala, held on February 22, proved to be one for the history books! Our GWA community is incredible and, yet again, has clearly demonstrated its belief in and support of GWA’s mission. Thank you to all who were able to attend the Gala and those who supported the Academy from home. It was a wonderful event made possible by a dedicated team of volunteers, staff, and vendors! We are thankful for another opportunity to celebrate 50 years of GWA and excitedly anticipate what is to come!

This year’s Lucky Dawg Gala and Benefit Auction will be virtual, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! Mark your calendar for Saturday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. and plan to tune in. A link for the live event will be sent out to all families on Saturday morning before the event. Please click HERE for complete event information - including auction registration, and raffle tickets and silent auction items.
