Welcome back from October break! The HIPS Executive Board would like your opinion as we consider changes to our annual fundraising events.
Please take a moment to answer the quick survey linked below.
As you may know, HIPS engages in numerous fundraising activities throughout the year in order to fund the many programs we support, including science, music, classroom supplies, field trips and more. Specifically, we are considering changes to Spring Fling and the creation of a new, evening fundraising auction event. But we will only proceed with your input!
Spring Fling has historically occurred on Spring Saturday at Hacienda and featured two main components; a Walk-a-thon whereby kids collect pledges per miles walked; and a silent auction. It has been a popular, family friendly event. While the walk-a-thon portion of the Spring Fling continues to be successful, the auction has been less so in recent years. As such, HIPS is considering a new event, whereby the auction would now be held on a separate evening at an adult-only cocktail party/dinner event at a private venue. The change may result in Spring Fling being moved to a Friday.
