Watauga High School DECA Club and Makoto's Japanese Steakhouse and
Sushi Bar are teaming up to host the first annual Watauga Helps Benefit
This year we chose to raise funds for Wine to Water's Haiti
Emergency Fund. On Tuesday, March 2nd, the entire community is
encouraged to come out to Makoto's between 5-9 pm, buy dinner, enter
the silent auction, and raise funds and awareness for Haitians in need.
Community members Michael Wyant (Watauga High School Principal), Mark
Garrett (Avery High School Principal), Carmen Scoggins (Watauga High
School Spanish Teacher), Ron Hopper (Watauga High School English
Teacher), and Piper Woodring (Watauga High School Family & Consumer
Sciences Teacher) have volunteered to serve guests at the event. DECA
students will be helping out on Tuesday night and Wine to Water's team
will be in attendance. We hope that this fundraiser will be very
successful in bringing our community together in an effort to provide
clean water to Haiti's earthquake victims. Many surrounding businesses
have donated to our silent auction which include, For Him, For Her, For
the Family, and Restaurant gift baskets. We hope to have your support
in this event on Tuesday March 2nd from 5-9 pm at Makoto's.
This is an event you won't want to miss out on!
