On March 28, 2015, P.S. 290, the Manhattan New School, will host its annual Auction Gala, a live and silent auction attended by hundreds of parents, faculty and friends of P.S. 290. As a build up for the Gala, P.S. 290 will also host online auctions, which reach broad audiences throughout New York City and the country, during fall 2014 and winter 2015. The Gala and the online auctions together raise funds to offset ever-increasing state and city budget cuts and supplement the efforts of our dedicated and caring teachers, staff and administration. These funds support the purchase of essential classroom supplies; the presence of assistant teachers in classrooms; art, music, dance and other cultural enrichment programs; technology upgrades; professional development for teachers and staff; and much, much more.
If you would like to register for the Auction, please click on the "Registration" link at left. We hope to see you there!
The success of the PS 290 Auction depends on the efforts of our entire community. If you would like to be involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. There are many ways to participate, and none are too big to or small!
We cannot overstate how critical your support is to the children of our community. On behalf of the children, parents and educators of P.S. 290, we thank you!
Further information regarding sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, event details and other information will be posted to this page as it becomes available. Please check back frequently for updates! And please feel free to reach out to this year’s co-chairs, Kim, Kristy and Randi, with any questions at email@example.com.
We can’t do this without you!
