What kinds of stories does Bob have to share?

On January 8, 1989, the 49ers would play the Bears in Chicago for the NFC title, the winner going to the Super Bowl. The 49ers won handily, as impressive a road victory as they accomplished. But that’s not what I remember of that time. What I do remember is what happened as I was sitting in Mike Ditka’s office four days before the game.I was interviewing the Bears coach for the Press Democrat. Ditka was notoriously ill-tempered. Many media were careful to parse their words so as not to enrage him. Which is why I remember so clearly what Ditka did in the middle of my interview.

Buy a ticket and hear the answer to this story and many more! This is sure to be an evening you won’t soon forget.

Your ticket purchase goes directly to The WISE Foundation directly benefiting children in the Waugh School District by funding the art, music, library and computer programs for the district. Thank you for your contribution and support.
Thank you to Bob Padecky and Melissa Becker for their generous donation.

WISE Annual Report for 2015-2016

No comments

WISE is pleased to announce we raised over $65,000 at Visions & Vines this year.

We couldn’t have done this without meeting our goal of raising $10,000 in the RAFFLE drive and receiving the $10,000 MATCH. This $20,000 was critical to helping us reach our fundraising goal for the year. Without these funds, programs would be cut.

Whether you participated in the Parent Giving Program, sponsored a child in the Fun Run, bid in our auction, or bought a raffle ticket. Every dollar counts.


[alert type=”alert-success” close=”false”]It costs $275 each year for your student(s) to have art, music, library and computer programs as part of their curriculum. 100% participation in the Annual Parent Giving Program would eliminate the need for additional fundraising. Your contribution helps the Waugh School District provide a private school education at a public school cost.[/alert]

Thank you to our donors, sponsors, volunteers, parents, teachers and staff for your continued support — together we are enriching today, for a better tomorrow.

The WISE Foundation is pleased to award the district $166,000 next year, to fund Art, Music, Library and Computer programs, benefiting all Waugh students.



The WISE Foundation would like to honor and thank our
