Spring Gala + Auction

FAQS

What is the theme?

Spring! We’ve had a long winter, so we are celebrating new beginnings and warm weather.

What is the dress code?

Party attire = wear what makes you feel good! Come straight from work or throw on something spring-inspired. Bring your dancing shoes and wallet!

Do kids attend the Auction?

No, this is an adults-only evening.

Are there a limited amount of tickets for sale?

Yes, the Fire Code regulates the maximum occupancy. Our venue allows 375 guests and we are almost sold out!

What happens at the event on May 4?

Eating, drinking and bidding begins at 7:30pm! Remember to check out the wonderful silent auction items and then tune-in for our live auction hosted by PS29 parent James Bewley. The silent auction closes at 10:30 pm and check-out will immediately follow. Winners will take items home directly from the event. Online bidders will pick items up at PS29 post-Auction.

What do the funds raised through the Auction pay for?

Funds raised help pay for enrichment programs (e.g., arts, music, drama, and science programs, chess, instrumental music, coding and sustainable gardening), capital improvements (e.g., water filtration system) and assistant teachers in Kindergarten classrooms — things that would be cut if we relied solely on funding from the DOE. Bidding generously in the Auction is a direct way for you to enrich your child’s school experience.
