Ambassador of India Meera Shankar and her husband Ajay Shankar served as Honorary Chairs of the WPAS annual auction and gala at the Marriott Wardman Park on Apr. 2. In 2010, WPAS served over 100,000 youth and adults through programs that encourage creativity, talent and appreciation for the arts. Col. Bill Billingsley conducted the live auction. A private concert by Wynton Marsalis raised $60,000 to support WPAS’ artistic initiatives and extensive education programs. Grammy Award-winner Roberta Flack, who once taught music in the DC public school system, was the evening’s headliner.
