Tue, May 2 3:33pm


The PS 107 PTA would like to extend an enormous thank you to Alyse Dosik and Christine Canedo-Pullan for planning, coordinating, and executing an INCREDIBLE spring Auction Gala.

Special thanks to Jenny May Reddy as well for being so amazing and handling the venue, food, drinks, and so much more!

The entire night was meticulously planned for everyone's enjoyment and it is clear everyone had a blast (almost everyone stayed until the very end!).

We cannot thank these women enough for all the countless hours they put into making this night a success for the parents and the school. Please give them a deserved thank you next time you see them in person.

Alyse and Christine have their own thank you to share below:

PS 107 is a special place and it has been our privilege to plan and organize the Auction Gala to raise money for our school.  We started planning this event in early October.  Not a day went by that we weren't thinking, planning, emailing, organizing, buying, sorting, learning, networking,  and creating this event.  We feel so proud of the 2023 Auction Gala Event.  Thank you for trusting us with this endeavor.
