T.C. Williams All-Night Grad Party

For nearly 25 years the Alexandria community has generously
supported the annual T.C. Williams All Night Drug and Alcohol Free
Graduation Celebration. Since T.C. Williams began this tradition in
1989, there have been no drug or alcohol-related graduation night
fatalities. This special celebration sends the clear message that as
a community, we value the academic achievement of graduation and care
deeply about the safety and well being of our students from all
over the City.

In order that we cover our expenses, we are soliciting donations from
within the Alexandria community. Donate online through our website – and click on the donations link.

You can donate online via paypal or print out and mail our donation form.

We appreciate your consideration and assure you that no donation is too small.

The All Night Drug and Alcohol Free Graduation Celebration for more than 500 graduating seniors from Alexandria's only public high school will take place this year on June 15th. Complimentary admission is available for those students who are unable to purchase tickets. On behalf of the students of the Class of 2013, thank you for considering this request to support Alexandria's graduates!
