The Third Annual

Wanderlust Ball

Saturday, April 29, 6:30-11pm


Travel back in time … to the 1940s swing era … it’s a night full of community, cocktails, jumpin’ live music and more to benefit WSB!

We’re packing the Old Stone with The Notables big band, dance floor, cash bar, silent auctions, live bidding, handmade items by our kids, “wine grab,” and so much more!

This fabulous party is THE essential finale to our school’s annual fundraising goals! Every penny raised directly benefits our kids’ vibrant education for the current school year – including teacher salaries and classroom essentials.

Calling all hepcats and kittens – friends, family, and guests are welcome!

See you at the Wanderlust Ball: Swing Spectacular on April 29th!


The Bidding


Come to the Spectacular, and get ready to raise your paddle!

Go all-in or team up with friends for an adventure package … act fast for treasures from the silent auction … take a chance on the 50/50 raffle and share the pot with WSB … and be sure to keep some dough on hand for the mystery Wine Grab!

In our exciting LIVE auction, we’ll vie for amazing experiences like:

  • Seven nights on the gorgeous beaches of Mexico at a luxurious five-star resort
  • Los Angeles Family Fun Package
  • Private jet flight to a Beavers game

There’s something for everyone! All funds raised directly benefit our current operating expenses. This event makes it all possible!

What To Wear

This is Bend, so... come as you are! But we do encourage fun and creativity with vintage attire. The wartime 1940s were all about practicality – simple skirts and dresses (think buttons and cap sleeves) and low-heeled shoes (even sneakers!) for the gals, suspenders and hats for the fellas. Then again, a sparkly party dress and a bow tie would be perfect, too! Might we see some ladies sporting victory rolls and red lips? We can’t wait!

But, please don’t let the attire intimidate – wartime 1940s parties were all about community coming together to benefit important causes!

Get inspired! Check out vintage attire ideas here!
