The Shelton School Parents' Association (SPA) raised money at the 2024 Stampede benefit auction on March 1 at the Frontiers of Flight Museum. Attendees enjoyed the evening with "Back to the 80s" as the theme. The evening included a cocktail reception, seated dinner, live and big board auctions and musical entertainment by Emerald City.

Auction proceeds go toward improving academics, curriculum programs, arts, athletics, technology, professional development for teachers, our wellness program, security enhancements and tuition assistance. Proceeds also go to the Shelton Endowment Fund and the Shelton Scholarship Fund. Among the items available at the auction were the Ultimate Cowboys experience, including travel for two on the Cowboys team-chartered plane and two tickets to a Cowboys away game, a poker party with former Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith, four tickets to Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour in Amsterdam and more.

2024 Stampede Auction co-chairs were Jennie Jones and Carolyn StrickfadenGina Rangel Pena and JoAnna Sudbeck are co-presidents of the 2023-2024 Shelton Parents' Association, which sponsored the event. Shelly Lloyd is Shelton's Director of Volunteer Relations and Events. 

Executive Director Suzanne Stell thanked the parents, volunteers, sponsors and staff who helped make the Stampede a success. "We couldn't do this without everyone," she said. "Our students would not experience the growth or the success they do without the support of what you do on evenings like tonight."

Shelton board member Bill Corrigan, who is father to tenth-grade Shelton student Kiwi and former Shelton student MaeMae, asked the crowd to give a standing donation for the Shelton staff. "This is one of the top schools in the country for children with learning differences," he said. "We love you guys and thank you for all that you do for our school."

Thanks to everyone for creating a successful event and for contributing funds that support Shelton!
