Paradise Island

In light of this very unusual and challenging situation created by the Covid-19 pandemic, we had to make the difficult and responsible decision to cancel our 2020 Paradise Island Fiesta Del Caribe event.

We are extremely grateful to all of our generous supporters - sponsors who allowed us to convert their commitment to 100% donations, underwriters and donors, auction donors and our incredibly dedicated and talented 2020 Paradise Island Committee.  Their contributions are a saving grace, and will have a profound impact on the student experience at IWA.

We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and plan to host a virtual auction when the time is appropriate.

Please click here to register so that you will receive updates via text and email, and be able to view and participate in our auction when it goes live.
