Washington, DC — For the third year in a row, DC Access will donate free Wireless Internet (WiFi) to the annual Jazz Gala and Auction for the School-within-School (SWS) at Peabody School on Stanton Park. The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 5 at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church (3rd and A Streets, SE).
“Being able to provide technology support for wonderful events like the SWS auction is a rewarding way to leverage our expertise and give back to the community where we live and work,” says Martha Huizenga, partner at DC Access.
SWS is a teacher-directed DC Public School serving pre-kindergarten and kindergarden students on the Peabody campus. Its mission is to support and develop children’s potential through a child-centered, collaborative teaching and learning environment inspired by the philosophy and practice of the Reggio Schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy.
This is the 11th annual Jazz Gala and Auction, which raises funds that are critical to supplementing insufficient funding from DCPS and helping SWS serve the neighborhood’s children. DC Access also donated WiFi to the auction in 2006 and 2007. WiFi streamlines the auction process, giving organizers access to an online system where they track donations, bidders, winning bids and process payments at the end of the night.
