Pops Winterfest is Winston’s annual signature fundraising event to
raise critical funding to provide the materials and resources for our
students with language-based learning disabilities.
All proceeds directly impact our teachers and students. In order to
achieve our goal of $50,000 this year, we are asking for help from
our community through sponsorship and/or a donation to the Live
and Silent Auction.
Winston invites you to DONATE an auction item, become an
EVENT SPONSOR, and/or ADVERTISE in the event program.
Live Auction hosted by Nick Dawes of PBS “Antiques Roadshow”

Our Mission:
The Winston School educates students who, though
intellectually capable, have had difficulties in school
typically due to language-based learning disabilities.
The goal of The Winston School is to enable our
students to meet, with confidence, the academic and
social challenges of life.
School Enrollment: 80 students (2-8 grade)
Geographic Profile: Students come from two states (New
Jersey and Pennsylvania) and represent 7 counties in New
Outcomes: Students transition from Winston School to
mainstream boarding, private and public schools typically in
8th grade. Over 90% of students go on to attend college.
Students often attribute their success in high school and
college to the confidence and skills learned at Winston.
With 200 – 250 parents and friends in attendance, the Pops Gala is
Winston’s largest fundraising event and we rely on the entire Winston
community to make it a success. In order to achieve our
goal of $50,000 this year, we are asking for your help.
