Last year, this event was our most successful fundraiser, with a net profit of $40,000. Family members and friends in the LIC community came together for a fun night out to benefit our school. The evening will again feature delicious cuisine, open bar with wine and well drinks, live music, silent auction and door prizes.
Kids Night Out! While parents are supporting the PTA at the Spring Gala, come spend the evening with us! Click here for more information.
Let's make this year our best year yet and raise enough money to continue our wonderful programs, including our recess pilot program, and add more wonderful enrichment opportunities for all students! We are all members of the PTA, and the more money we raise, the more influence we can have over our children's education experiences!
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Volunteer! Help us solicit and organize auction items and help create our gala program. We know your time is valuable so we will work around your schedules! Sponsorship and Auction Form Packet
Ideas for Auction items:
- *Underwrite a portion of the event costs
- *Restaurant and spa gift certificates
- *Weekend Getaways, hotel stays
- *Do you have access to sporting event tickets, theater/concert tickets or unique experiences (i.e. backstage passes, television taping or other VIP experiences)?
- *Do you work for a business that could donate goods and merchandise?
- *Ask your favorite camps to donate a week, secure a semester of children's classes or play space passes.
- *Do you or a member of your family have a skill or service they can donate? Your skills are valuable!
- *Think outside the box – art classes, music lessons, financial planning, fitness classes, cooking classes, nutritional counseling, language lessons, etc. The possibilities are endless!
We need people to canvas Long Island City Businesses to help secure valuable donations!
Donate! Every donation, no matter the size, is the key to the auction’s success. Your donation is tax deductible.
Attend! Tickets will be sold for $95 in advance, $65 for Teachers and Administration, $115 at the door-invite friends and family! We need to sell at least 150 tickets to help cover our costs!
Linked here is our Sponsorship and Auction Form Packet which can be emailed or printed for anyone to solicit monetary donations and/or silent auction items. It is also fillable online.
