2022 Auction Donations Needed !
Thu, Mar 17 12:49pm

We are gearing up for this year's Auction and Party, historically one of the biggest fundraisers for our school, which has looked a lot different the past two years.

 

The in-person party is scheduled for June 3 and details will be announced soon.  But FIRST, we need your help soliciting awesome items for our silent auction. Take a look at all the ways you can help below and send an email to auctiondonation@ps372pta.org if you have contacts you can share to help us reach our fundraising goal. If you have items yourself to donate, instructions on how to donate are included below.

 

SPONSORSHIPS: Ask your favorite neighborhood business, dentists, doctors, real estate companies to consider being a sponsor.  Or maybe your employer would be interested in sponsoring our school.  Sponsorships are available at various levels ($100-$1,000) and we have letters with all the information a business might need.  Please email auction@ps372pta.org with sponsorship ideas or questions before asking in case they have already been approached.

 

DONATIONS

Own a business? Know the owner, or have been a regular customer?  You can help our school.

 

Reach out to the auction committee auctiondonation@ps372pta.org and we can guide you -- many local businesses have been generous in the past and may have already been contacted.  We don't want to annoy people by asking twice!

 

Great ideas for auction items:

  • Restaurants gift certificates
  • Exercise classes, gyms, salons, or spa gift certificates
  • Kids birthday party venues
  • Kids camps credits
  • Event Tickets: Do you have tickets to donate (arts, concerts sports, theater?) Does your company have access to corporate box seats for events that can be donated?
  • Donate a stay at your vacation home or those of family and friends. (These can be limited to the  PS 372 community if you prefer.)
  • Experiences: Work somewhere cool that other people might be interested in?  Offer a behind-the-scenes tour or a meet-and-greet with interesting people.
  • Anything else people would typically buy.  We are limiting the number of physical items this year because of logistics, so please reach out to the committee with questions.  We may still be able to accommodate donations, but will need to coordinate.

Donations can be made on inclusions and a receipt will be generated for tax purposes: http://tinyurl.com/ps372-donate

 

Have Just a Bit of Time?  The committee may need help picking up donations in various neighborhoods and bringing items to school.  Let the committee know if you can help in your neighborhood or on your way to drop-off or pick-up!


We look forward to celebrating in person at this adults-only party and want to be able to track the success of our auction in real time.  Help us make the total grow!
