PTSO donated a basket to the raffle at the April 7 WAHS dance marathon, which attracted hundreds of students. The year-long fundraiser brought in $14,458.61 - 20% more than its goal - for the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.
The PTSO basket included "We Are West" t-shirts; snacks and soda; gift cards for Chili's, Cinemark Theater, Taco Bell and Starbucks; and a coupon for four Colonial sundaes. Special thanks to Tamara Scott for assembling the basket.

Meet at the Q Center in St. Charles by 9:45 pm with your vehicle (SUVs preferred).
