2017 Bubb Walkathon & Silent Auction

Where Does the Money Go?


The Walkathon & Silent Auction (WATSA) is a huge, fun event for the entire Bubb community. Each year the Walkathon raises from 75-90% of the PTA’s budget. This money is used to pay for a long list of enrichment activities and school supplies that otherwise would be cut, cancelled or done without.
