Our 2017 Spring Gala & Silent Auction will be held Saturday, March 18th!
The auction is our school’s largest fundraising event. This fun evening generates 1/3 of the PTA’s total annual budget, which directly funds our classrooms. The PTA has provided money to purchase iPads & computers, new sports & occupational therapy equipment, enhance the art and music programs, establish a chess curriculum, and support teachers’ participation in professional development programs. The PTA also raises money to award grants to classroom teachers and specialists for classroom materials.
What can we all do now?
Everyone in our school community can find the wide range of donations we need to make our 2017 Silent Auction a success. The kind of items that generate bids are restaurant gift certificates, event tickets, annual memberships, gift certificates for retail stores, new brand name retail items (e.g. purses, jewelry, gift items), spa services or other “experiences,” like cooking lessons or a weekend away at a seasonal home.
Donations to our auction are tax deductible for the businesses who contribute. It’s easy to give & it’s also good advertising for participating donors.
How do I get a donation?
