2011 Art Show and Silent Auction at P.S./I.S. 217 (Roosevelt Island School)

The Art Show/Silent Auction meeting is THIS Monday morning on Feb. 14th in the Library after drop-off at 8:45am! We love and need many volunteers for this amazing event - so although one volunteer is asked to represent each classroom - we can use all your help, ideas and ways that you can participate and contribute to the event.  Please plan to join us Monday morning for breakfast and the meeting! 

Many thanks!

*following is the message from Kristi Towey - Fundraising Chair re: the meeting on Monday.  Hope to see you there! 

Dear PS/IS 217 Families & Art Lovers,

The PTA is so excited to be hosting its 2nd Annual ART SHOW & SILENT AUCTION on the afternoon of Saturday, April 2nd.  

This event will pair a silent auction with the showing of our children's art created during Studio in Schools residency at our school!  It will be open to the community and has great potential to raise a lot of money for our school to continue funding programs like Studio in Schools!!  

We need your help!  This event is our largest fundraiser of the year.  The more help we have, the easier the task!  There are many ways to help.  

We need one representative in each class to be involved and serve on the Auction Committee.  

This involvement could range from:
*helping plan the event and get donations
*getting parents in your class involved in various ways
*helping with class art projects to be auctioned off at the event
*being part of the decorating committee
*being part of the art committee
*helping set up the day of the event
*volunteering during the event
*and/or all the other miscellaneous things that arise planning such a large event!!

Please consider being part of our Auction Committee.......did I mention our meetings have great food???  Our first committee meeting will be on Monday, February 14th (show your love for our school on Valentine's Day), immediately following drop off at 8:45 in the library.  Come enjoy breakfast with us and get involved in one of our best events of the year!

Please RSVP for Monday's meeting by this Friday evening to Kristi Towey,

Thank you,
Kristi Towey, PS/IS 217 PTA Fundraising Chair
