Restore the Roar 2020 – Country Style
The Winter Park High School Foundation’s fifth annual 2020 Restore the Roar adults-only event will be Saturday, February 22 at Showalter Field from 6:00–10:00 p.m. The foundation would like to thank the City of Winter Park, Orange County Public Schools, and the Winter Park community for their continued support in restoring Showalter into one of the best high school sports complexes in the state of Florida. And to celebrate the fifth year in hosting this event, our Cats are “going country!”
There will be food by Sonny’s BBQ, decorations by Florida Event Decor, DJ, dance floor and photo booth by Brad Master J. Please consider being a personal, family, or business sponsor or donating a silent auction item to the event. Tickets, sponsorship packets, parking and drink bands available on Handbid: https://handbid.app.link/rtr.
This year, we will continue to engage all WPHS organizations by providing the opportunity to direct the donations you make to any WPHS club, organization, or sports program. A percentage of table sales, sponsorships, and silent auction items will be directed back to either the group you designate or the group who secured the donation! We are thrilled to offer this benefit to the entire school population with the goal to build community and support all WPHS students.
In addition, the Foundation campaign is raising funds for these initiatives, which impact and benefit the entire school:
- WPHS Main Campus Student Media Center Renovations
- Further Investment in Showalter Renovations (i.e. concession stand, restrooms, etc.)
- WPHS Main Campus Landscape Beautification
- Student Groups & Programs
Your generosity has enabled the WPHS Foundation to undertake projects, both large and small, that raise the bar for our students. We have completed, or are in the process of completing, many projects to improve the high school experience for all students. Some recent highlights include:
- Main campus shade structure over cafeteria courtyard and pool
- 90 TI-Nspire CX II and CX II Graphing calculators for the math department
- Main campus state-of-the-art collegiate weight room
- New lawn mower for WPHS Athletics
- New surrey bike for WPHS students with disabilities
- New chairs for the WPHS College and Career Center
- New lockers at Showalter Field
Our goal is to make Winter Park High School a best-in-class facility and couldn’t do it without your support. We look forward to seeing you on February 22, 2020!
The WPHS Foundation was established in 1992 as a 501(c)3 organization (non-profit) to provide additional support to WPHS in order to bridge the gap between county and state educational funding for WPHS students. Its sole purpose is to provide additional financial support for the educational, extracurricular, and athletic needs that benefit WPHS students.
All gifts are fully tax-deductible and will qualify for an employer match, if your employer has such a program. Also, the Foundation is an all-volunteer organization with modest administrative expenses, allowing it to devote 98% of gifts to the school, fulfilling annual teacher “wish lists” and providing additional benefits not funded by Orange County.
