Seeking donations for Pasta Dinner Auction


While the month of May seems like a long time away, the Pasta Dinner Auction Committee is gearing up to make this year's auction extra awesome!


Our annual Pasta Dinner this year will take place on May 17.  The Auction is a big part of this event, and an important fundraising opportunity for the PTA, so we can continue to pay for all the programs our kids enjoy (Art in Action, Project Cornerstone, Music, garden, field trips, to name a few...).  In years past, we have auctioned off amazing items such as a stay in a Tahoe condo, 49ers tickets, gym classes, and kids' night at a local art studio.  Parents have donated their skills such as a 'Family Bike Tuneup' and 'Golf Swing Assessment', and also hosted events such as 'Moms Night to W(h)ine', and a 'Slime Making and Pizza Party'.


In order to make this event a success, we need YOUR help!  


*  Consider joining our Auction Committee, to help us reach out to various local businesses for donations and their support.

*  Think about hosting an event/experience for children or parents to attend. 

Take this donation letter with you to community businesses that you frequent and ask them for a donation. Email auction@henryfordpta.org once you have a donation for us so we can keep track!
