You made the auction a tremendous success

Posted on March 15, 2017

the words thank you written in multiple colors A heartfelt Gracias, Danke and Grazie go out not only to the many auction attendees but also the donors, sponsors, volunteers, vendors, entertainers and everyone else involved in this annual fundraising event. More than 300 people said Bon Voyage to their cares on Saturday night and enjoyed a festive, globally themed evening that exceeded all expectations! 

Although exact figures are still being calculated, the paddle raises alone raised an impressive amount for PTC programs and both principals’ wish lists. Thank you so much to the 84 grade school and high school families who raised their paddles at the auction and online, contributing $40,000 to RGS for outdoor learning and technology integration, and $40,000 to RHS for field studies.

You can still join these families! (To donate, click here and select your school from the pull down menu.) 

The PTC will report on overall numbers soon in their Parent Pack emails, but suffice it to say we are thrilled with generosity, enthusiasm and support of the Riverdale community.
