2020 Founders’ Day Dinner – Postponed to August 29 2020

August 29 @ 5:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Founders Day Postponed // COVID-19 concerns

Based on feedback from members and local authorities, the West Point Society of Atlanta is postponing Founders Day this month and rescheduling to 29 August 2020.

Here is our plan moving forward, as of March 14 2020:

Refunds will be issued for meal tickets and associated credit card fees. Refunds issued via your original payment method. We will have a separate registration for the new Founders Day date. This will open up in June or July. If you purchased wine, we will make separate arrangements to deliver it to you (please contact Dale Hajost ’82, ). Dues are not refundable. Winners of our awards will be announced shortly via email.

For refund questions: please contact our Executive Director, Jan Heath at

Be sure to bring some cash or a checkbook to bid on or purchase items for a good cause. The John R. Petty Sr. Foundation (JRPF) (formerly West Point Charitable Enterprises. of Atlanta) is a tax-exempt organization that puts all money toward youth leadership supporting USMA’s mission of Duty, Honor, Country and other worthy veterans-related causes.

The JRPF will be sponsoring the silent auction and wine sales (see attached form) to collect money for leadership programs designed to prepare local youth for admission to our great Alma Mater or other avenues of service to our country. The Foundation has also donated to other worthy veterans causes such as Warrior2Citizen, Veterans Empowerment Organization, Vets Helping Vets, Project Share, and Children of Fallen Patriots. Save a little extra room in your evening purse or tuxedo pocket for money to help this worthy cause – and the items are well worth it, too!

  1. Samir I am the widow of Charles W. Stewart III class of ‘63. I have several items I would like to donate for the John Petty silent auction. I do live in Athens,Ga but my daughter lives and works in Atlanta. I could get the items to her. I need a point of contact for the person in charge of the auction this year. My cell is 770-314-7604
    My husband was on the board many years and worked with John on several projects. Thank you for your assistance.

    1. Linda, Thank you for the very kind offer. I’ll ask someone from the WPSA BoG to reach out to you immediately.
