ANCS Wonder Ball Auction March 5

By Lori Howard
The Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School’s (ANCS) Wonder Ball will again be held at the Georgia Freight Depot at 65 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard on Saturday, March 5, from 5:00pm to11:00pm.
The auction is the largest fundraiser of the year for ANCS, and the school welcomes members of the community to attend along with ANCS friends and families. The theme for this year’s Wonder Ball is “The Secret Garden” in celebration of the school’s garden, farm, and farm-to-table nutrition program, led by Chef David Bradley and Kari Lovell. Please join the party in jeans, cocktail attire, or anything in between and have fun supporting ANCS.
The Wonder Ball is a great night out. Tickets include a delicious buffet catered by Endive, live music, dancing, a silent and live auction, all held inside a secret garden created by Tulip. Auction items range from restaurant gift cards and vacation rentals to student-created art and furniture, paintings, and jewelry by local artists, and unique items such as a lantern workshop.
Mobile bidding will be back again for the silent auction. Five dollars will buy you a chance to win one of the raffle tables filled with hundreds of dollars’ worth of merchandise, including electronics, outdoor gear, home spa supplies, gift certificates, and more.
Tickets can be purchased in advance for $25 at The website also allows you to contribute to this year’s auction, either as a donor or sponsor. You can also look at auction items before the big night. Please consider supporting ANCS by donating and attending the party.
ANCS serves students from kindergarten through 8th grade at its two campuses—the elementary school in Grant Park and the middle school in Ormewood Park. The school, which is a 501(c)3 organization, was created more than a decade ago by a group of local parents who partnered with teachers and community members. They had a vision for a new approach to public education that focused on creative learning and relied on parental involvement.
ANCS is a thriving institution and, after two years as a finalist, has been named the 2015 Georgia Charter School of the Year by the Georgia Charter Schools Association. The second oldest charter school in Atlanta, it has been recognized for innovative teaching practices, energy-efficient facilities, and its engagement with other schools of the Jackson Cluster through projects such as CREATE (Collaboration and Reflection to Enhance Atlanta Teacher Effectiveness).
