Nonprofit seeks donation for gala fund-raiser

A nonprofit booster organization for Westwood’s elementary schools is seeking volunteers and donations of auction items for its annual gala fund-raiser. Over two decades, the Westwood Elementary Schools Coalition has contributed more than $1 million to enrichment opportunities for children and purchases of wish list items that aren’t included in the school district’s budget. The March 16 event, which features food, entertainment, and both live and silent auctions, starts at 7:30 p.m. at Moseley’s on the Charles in Dedham. Tickets are $60 each. To learn more, go to  or contact Leigh Wasserman at
