Fundraiser Information

Information about the Meet the Artists and Silent Auction for the Lighthouse of Learning Academy:

    Artists, authors, craftspeople, and musicians are invited to participate free of charge. Just call Judie Smith at 304-389-8025 to reserve a table (or two). The tables are provided. No vending exhibit is too large or too small. Vendors are invited to submit an item for the Silent Auction, but that is certainly

     The event is Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Saint Anthony Catholic Church on Charleston’s West Side. The address is 1000 Sixth Street. Vendors may set up early Saturday or even Friday evening; they just need to make arrangements with Judie.

        Tickets are sold for $25 to the general public. There is wedding-reception-quality food, desserts, drinks, beer, and wine. The Silent Auction offers quality theme baskets and individual items (such as a night’s stay at Embassy Suites).  


About the Lighthouse of Learning

    The Lighthouse is a non-profit, non-traditional private school, registered with the West Virginia State Board of Education, for middle-school and high-school students in Charleston. The focus is on student-directed learning, and the school’s philosophy is evident in its mission statement:  “Individualized learning options because all students are individuals.”  Students learn they are appreciated for their individuality, and the focus is on helping them develop a love of learning that has either never been instilled or has been lost in the primary years of their education. Members of the community are welcome to volunteer, and many do: for creative writing, history lectures, chemistry demonstrations, AP English, physical education, reading and math tutoring, and art … to name a few.

(The Lighthouse of Learning Academy is a non-profit educational organization with a registered Employee Identification Number.  All contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.)
