Bliss Large





  • No one does an auction like WSOC.  Our solicitation crew and community of parents hit this one out of the park.  We are literally busting at the seams with beautiful, valuable, unique and heartfelt items, most of which are FOR SALE NOW on-line.
  • Your support is needed.  Please place a bid on an item today and forward the website link to friends and family.  They will find great items, some things they won't find elsewhere, some things they are going to buy anyway.  In either case, their shopping greatly benefits our school and they will be impressed by what we're offering.  
Our event is basically SOLD OUT.  We have a limited number of seats remaining which can be yours if you contact Denise Ogawa in the office promptly.  Selection and seating is limited.
Many blissful thanks for the overwhelming show of enthusiasm and support.  It matters.

We are partnering with "Recycle for Life" to be a collection location for used items you may just be tossing or otherwise have no use for.  Not only do we get to participate in recycling, but we get to earn funds for the school while doing it.  


So the next time you change the ink in your printer or trade in for the latest cell phone, remember we have a place for it.  Please bring it to the front office with a smile on your face and know you are doing some good.

SET UP YOUR FOURSOMES NOW. Arroyo Trabuco Golf 1



May 17, 2013 

(A Friday!)


We hope you will join us for the 4th Annual WSOC Golf Tournament, "Driving for the Future", once again at the beautiful Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo.  Accepting golfers of all levels for a great day of fun in support of the school.  Also accepting all shoppers and fun-seekers for the after-golf party and auction.  


Ask anyone who went last year, it was very fun and relaxed in a beautiful setting.  We're hoping to expand the after-golf party element this year, so please plan to be there.  This event is heavily attended by friends of WSOC families who golf, so please think about inviting your co-workers, weekend warrior buddies or anyone who wouldn't mind taking a Friday off of work for an excellent cause. 


And to all the ladies out there...this is NOT a mens-only event.  Could this be the year a ladies foursome brings home the big trophy!  Come on ladies, this is the perfect excuse to hit the driving range.  Let's go.


Proudly brought to you by
