10 George Washington students represented our Patriot Players Theatre troupe by volunteering at the Matthew Shepard Foundation’s annual fundraising gala. Students assisted foundation workers with the silent auction by registering bids and handing out the winning bids. The students attended speeches from the foundation’s founder, Judy Shepard, and this year’s achievement award recipient, Sean Hayes of Will and Grace fame. The auctioneer gave the Patriot Players and GWHS a shout out for our spring production of The Laramie Project, based on the tragic death of Matthew Shepard.
