(Translation: OMG! What a party! What an auction!)
Just one week ’til the gala event of the year!
Be sure to get your tickets by clicking here or visiting the ticket table in the yard at drop-off next week.
The proceeds from the EVCS ¡Fiesta! fund the programs that make our school as exciting and enriching for our kids as it can be — Theater with Kelli! Spanish! Music! And so much more!
And for a tantalizing taste of the auction items that will be available for your bidding enjoyment, read on …
A one-night stay at the glamorous Standard Hotel East Village, conceived by André Balsaz, the genius behind Chateau Marmont, the Mercer and other fabulous destinations of the rich and famous. It’s a $450 value, but could be yours for … less!
A Bowery Lane Bicycle
— the height in simplicity and cycling elegance, this baby will change your life (and reduce your Metrocard and parking ticket expenditures immeasurably). A $595 value, yours for … less?
The Kate Spade Liberty Island Quinn bag
— imagine this swanky tote in the basket of your Bowery Lane bike! Divine! A $318 value, yours for … less!
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. So get your tickets
, line up your sitters, iron your clothes, and get thee to the EVCS ¡FIESTA! Hasta el Cinco de Mayo!
Anyone wondering why the Parent Association has been so aggressive this year trying to raise funds need look no further than this video put together by our intrepid InFlight program coordinator, Kelli Holsopple:
Nearly all of the PA budget goes to pay for enrichment programs that the school budget no longer covers: music, Spanish language, and theater arts. If it weren’t for parents providing all or most of the funding for these classes, they simply would not be available to our children.
To make sure that we can continue to provide this kind of programming at EVCS, we have one last fundraiser for the school year, the EVCS ¡Fiesta! on May 5. Please consider buying your tickets online right now and volunteering for the event.
The EVCS ¡Fiesta! is coming up on May 5 (your invite is in the mail — look out for a bright pink envelope!).
This Tuesday, after drop off, we will hold a meeting for anyone interested in helping out with the event’s Silent Auction. We’re already off to an exciting start with some wonderful items tricking in, but a few more folks out there soliciting donations will make all the difference.
Please join Jayne to brainstorm donation ideas and/or to sign up to solicit donations from local businesses. Meet her in the school yard, and please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you’re coming.
Purchase tickets now using your PayPal account or credit card:
