The Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys is a not-for-profit, tuition-free school for boys in Southeast Washington, D.C. The school creates a nurturing and supportive environment where students mature academically, spiritually,
socially, artistically, physically, and morally, and develop the self-confidence and character to make a positive impact on society.
Through this show, the WWS raises monies and public awareness on behalf of its chosen charities.
The WWS sponsors a three-day antiques show held annually at American University’s Katzen Arts Center. Each year the Show has a theme that is interpreted through an educational loan exhibit and in one or two scholarly articles in the Show's Catalogue. The Show features forty-five premiere antiques dealers from across the United States and Europe.
Each year the WWS selects local charities to be the beneficiaries of a significant portion of the monies raised during the Show. All eligible charities must have 501(c)(3) status designated by the Internal Revenue Service.
