Lexi Wise may be gone from this earth, but her spirit still shines brightly throughout the halls of Weston High School. This was never more evident than on March 12th, when the administration, faculty, staff and students at WHS wished her a heavenly Happy Birthday by releasing balloons in her honor and holding an auction to raise money for Lexi’s Closet.
At the age of 10 years old, Lexi passed away on November 8, 2019 after an accident on an ATV. The idea to create Lexi’s Closet came about when Lexi’s mom, Pam, had an idea to create a closet filled with supplies for the less fortunate students and what she loved to do most, give back.
This past week an auction was held that comprised of over 80 items were donated by area merchants, restaurants and individuals for auction and raised thousands of dollars that will go to supplying the Closet and help underprivileged children.
“The auction is officially closed, and we are in awe! When we first discussed this idea, we hoped to have 20 items and prayed we could raise $2,000. Your generosity and love have blown us away,” said auction organizer Cyndi Beaubouef. “I can’t think of a better way to say Happy Birthday to Lexi and honor her memory.”
