Major Fundraisers

The money raised by our FSA fundraising events is used to fund vital Family & School Association programs that support Our Lady of the Wayside students, teachers, and the OLW School Annual Fund.

Homemade Holiday Fair

FSA has hosted this fundraiser since 1980. For the 2017-18 school year, we are hosting a Ladies Night Out on Friday, November 17. Ladies’ Night Out offers time with friends, food and wine, and a great shopping experience. The Holiday Fair is known in the community for its wide variety of unique handmade items. Admission fees, vendor fees, and food sales raised by this event go towards FSA’s school-wide fundraising effort to help make OLW School better and stronger; it is our second largest fundraiser.

Annual Gala

The Annual Gala is OLW’s largest and most anticipated fundraiser. Since 1990, this event has raised over a million dollars to provide our students with state of the art technology, improved facilities, and cultural opportunities. The support raised from this event goes directly to helping our students. Featuring cash and jewelry raffles, silent auction items of every kind, creative sign up parties, beloved classroom projects and teacher outings, and impressive live auction items, our Gala has something for everyone.

Visit our Annual Gala webpage for details on this event.

Trivia Night

The first OLW Trivia Night was held in 2009. Since then, this event has become very popular as creativity as well as knowledge of useless facts is rewarded. Teams of ten are encouraged to dress up and decorate their tables according to a theme of their own choosing, and drinks and food are BYOE (bring your own everything). Teams face several rounds of trivia and are judged each round by our very own OLW teachers. The winning table wins the traveling trophy and bragging rights for an entire year.
