Fall Ball – Thank You All

halloween

Hello Amazing EVCS Families,

We did it! We pulled off yet another blow-out of a Fall Ball! No small feat and wholly due to a great amount of time and effort donated by a great number of parents!

Thank you to Each and Every One of You who helped-out, kicked-in, baked, shlepped, scared, cleaned, manned a table and shopped. It could not have happened without you and the kids had an absolute blast! So many of us participated in so many many ways, three cheers to all of us!

EVCS Annual Spring Gala is 18 days away! (April 28th )

7-11:30 PM at the Grand Hall of St. Mary’s Church

The Gala is the PA’s biggest and most critical fundraiser of the year. We aim to raise more than 25% of our annual budget in one night. The money raised goes to benefit and enhance all of our kids educational experience at EVCS. We depend on the event to raise these funds and the kids are counting on us!

So, what we need right now are Silent Auction Item Donations.

The range of popular auction items and good sellers is wide and extensive. Click here to download a donation form to print or here, for the online donation link. Here are some categories and ideas to help get you brainstorming:

Feel free to ask us about any item if you aren’t sure it’s a good fit.

Gala Silent Auction Items are needed ASAP!

Hi Friends,

Now that you all have RSVPed to the Gala (you did, didn’t you? ‘Cause if not, click here), we need you to step-up and bring in auction items! And when we say “items” we mean anything you’d like to see in at a silent auction, and when we say “bring”, we mean ask anyone and everyone you know for those items and have them fill out the online donation form.

One of the simplest ways to solicit auction items is to ask businesses in your neighborhood that you frequently visit and most are more than happy to support their local schools and also get the word out about their establishments, you just need to ask.

Before the break, your child will bring home a printed copy of the donation letter along with a donation form but if you want to get a jump start, you can download it here.

You may have some questions like, ‘I’ve never been to the Gala before, what kind of items are you looking for?’ You can find answers in our FAQ page and if you don’t find what you are looking for, drop us an email at parents@evcsnyc.org. Your questions will be answered super quick. Promise.

So put it on your ‘Today To-Do list’, not on your ‘Save-It-For-Later list’.

We all counting on YOU!

Thank you,
The Events Committee
and the Spring Gala Team
