The Wylie Bulldogs Education Foundation (WBEF) dinner is returning on Thursday, September 29, 2022. After a two-year absence due to the coronavirus pandemic shutdown. This important benefit fundraiser for the Education Foundation vows to be a spectacular evening with delicious catered food from The Shed restaurant, drinks, fun, fellowship, and a celebration of all things Wylie.

The Wylie Bulldogs Education Foundation dinner will also honor Wylie alumni who have returned to the district as either Wylie teachers or Wylie Independent School District employees. This year the Foundation's dinner will take place at the Mesquite Event Center in downtown Abilene, 201 Mesquite Street.
