Dear PS 290 Families and Friends,
It has been a long year and we our finally at the finish line. We could not have done this without the tireless efforts of parents and staff that devoted their time and energy to make this night happen. Prior to committing to this endeavor, we really didn't understand the magnitude of what was involved in organizing something this big. We didn't know the hard work that was done in previous years and the amount of commitment needed to support the school we love so much.
To the parents who chaired in previous years - thank you thank you for all that you did. Thank you also for helping us with advice and support as we needed it.
To Christine and Nithya - you both have been the backbone of this auction. The amount of work that you both put into this auction is immeasurable. We appreciate the countless hours you committed to helping, your time away from your families - thank you - we truly could not have done this without you. You are just as much a chair of this auction as we are. To your families and spouses - thank you for being supportive of Christine and Nithya - throughout this process. Your patience and understanding allowed them to help make this night a huge success!
To our PTA presidents, Kristy and Priya - you have the weight of so much on you and we appreciate your constant support throughout this process.
To Sarah Keegan and Sarah O'Malley - thank you for being our communication to the school. For putting up with us bombarding you with constant emails throughout the year.
To our parents that pounded the pavement to solicit donations - we know it's not easy but you pulled through and we couldn't raise the very much needed funds without your endless efforts. To Frank Fuchs, you have been a source of support for us with your guidance, advice, and dedication to help make this event a success - we thank you for all that you do.
To our families - Max, Brad, Samantha and Jessie - thank you for allowing us to devote our time to something bigger than us and for being supportive throughout this crazy process. We are so lucky to have your love and support.
And last but not least, thank you! Thank you for joining us for a fun and exciting night of eating, drinking and of course bidding!! We hope you have an amazing night!
