Another Successful Spring Bash

Another fun and successful Spring Bash occurred last week with nearly 500 people attending our annual fundraiser and helping to raise over $220,000 for 48 different teams, clubs and departments at Whitney Young!

If you missed the fun but still want to pick up something nice, we have a couple of great auction items, a few parties you can attend, and some Whitney Young swag. Just go to your online bidding account or to

The paddle raise was also a great success raising $54,000. There is still room for your donation if you have not given yet! We are raising funds for new theater lights, teacher spaces, tennis courts and science labs. You can see the video and learn more by clicking here .

Congratulations to the raffle winners! The 3rd place winner of $500 was Chris Kowalke. The 2nd place winner of $1000 was Stephanie Grais. The winner of the 2018 Ford EcoSport SE made possible by Fox Ford Lincoln Chicago was Brian Walsh.

Thank you to the many family and corporate sponsors that helped make Spring Bash possible. Thank you also to everyone that donated an item, attended the event, bought a raffle ticket, bid on an auction item or volunteered. It would not have been a success without you!
