The South Whidbey Schools Foundation raised $18,000 for classroom grants for the 2014-15 school year.

The foundation held a gala dinner on Saturday, April 26, at Useless Bay Golf & Country Club. About 100 people attended the live auction.

South Whidbey resident Jim Freeman got the crowd going in his famed role as “Conductor of Fun” and led the after-dinner auction, according to a news release.

The night featured a demonstration of underwater robotics and reports on projects funded by the foundation. Former principal of the primary school, Judi Fenton, spoke to the audience and Superintendent Jo Moccia led the crowd in games and activities.
