During the 2018-19 school year P.S. 290 will host a Spring Gala Live and Silent Auction that is attended by hundreds of parents, faculty and friends of our school as well as a Fall Camps Only Online Auction.


To ensure success, we need your HELP obtaining auction donations! You might not think you have anything to offer but you may know someone who can.

See below for some suggestions:


Exciting Silent and Live Auction Items:  
· Do you or anyone you know work at a network/show and can donate tickets to a taping, show, or some other fun event?
- ex: ABC, NBS, CBS, Bravo, ESPN, SNY, YES Network 
- Backstage, front row & meet & greets are great enhancements
· Do you or anyone you know work for a sports company/team to donate tickets to a game? Or do you have season tickets and can you donate tickets to one or more games?
 - ex: NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA
· Do you or anyone you know work for a music or entertainment company/venues? Can you donate tickets to film premieres, concerts, or theme parks? Or through your profession, do you have connections to popular musicians or bands that would be willing to perform at the gala?
 - ex: Madison Square Garden, Prudential Center, Barclays
· Do you work in the hotel/hospitality field? Can you donate hotel stays, spa packages, dining experiences or anything else?
· Do you have vacation homes or timeshares you are willing to donate for a weekend, week, etc.….?

If the above doesn't apply to you, you can still help our Online Auction - where gift cards or other donations from local restaurants, spas, gym/fitness clubs you may frequent are always welcome. It doesn’t hurt to ask these local business – you’ll be surprised by the response, especially if it's an opportunity for exposure to local costumers!
