Early bird tickets are on sale now through February 14th. The venue has a limited capacity and we have sold out the past two years. Reserve early and tell your friends to do the same!
There are three ways you can help!
1. Donate or solicit donations for experiences, merchandise, or services:
Do you have a weekend home? Do you have access to backstage passes to an event? Are you a business owner that likes to support public education? Do you have a friend, neighbor, or relative who can donate a unique experience, a service, or tickets to an event? Do you have a special skill to teach? Check out this list of “60 Great Donation Ideas” for inspiration.
Donation items may be submitted online (preferred method). A hard copy will also be backpacked home and additional forms are available in the PTA office, Room 105.
2. Help us find business sponsors to underwrite the event:
Do you own or run a local business or have a friend who does? Sponsoring the PS29 Gala + Auction is a great way for local business owners to grow awareness while making a tax-deductible contribution.
Sponsorships opportunities are available from $500 to $3,000. Please email Chelsea or Constance at email@example.com for more information.

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.
