    In the United States, the prom is a cultural phenomenon, and every year our school hosts its very own signature event. In the past, the prom has had themes like “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Wizard of Oz” and “Hollywood Nights.” This year’s theme was “Winter Wonderland,” and the school cafeteria was transformed with shining blue and silver decorations, special lighting and table accessories. Students got the chance to dress up for the evening, socialize and dance with their classmates and enjoy food and drinks at this end-of-the-year celebration.

    The 2019 Spring Gala, held on March 31 at the Albany Capital Center, was an evening to remember filled with delicious food, the sounds of one of the region’s favorite bands, Body & Soul, and nearly 500 guests enjoying it all.

    As well as being a fabulous evening of dining, dancing, and connecting with old and new friends, it was also a very important evening of fundraising to support the services Wildwood provides to over 3,500 people every year. The Wildwood Foundation team, the Gala Committee, Honorary Co-Chairs Nick and Lisa Preddice, community sponsors, Honorary Committee members and all the volunteers and attendees for the evening were responsible for raising over $250,000!
