Wrightsville Beach Elementary School will be able to hire a full-time teaching assistant and two part-time tutors next year, thanks to the 4th annual Casino Night held on February 4th at The Country Club of Landfall, sponsored by the WBS Foundation. This year’s event – which attracted more than 250 people and a record number of sponsors – was the most successful yet, according to Beth Adams of The WBS Foundation.
The Foundation was founded in 2012 to provide extra financial support to the school. During that time, the Foundation has played an important role in the school’s rise to national renown, culminating in its recent selection as one of the 100 best elementary schools in the country.
Over the years, the Foundation has helped the school purchase a variety of supporting technology and materials, including IPads, SmartBoards™, books, manuals, and more. This year’s donation is the first to go for human resources, Adams said.
Landfall Realty has been a proud supporter of the WBS Foundation since its inception and has sponsored the Casino Night event since it started.
