30(+1)th Anniversary Gala

As we near the end of this school year we have a lot to celebrate,
especially PPAS’s 31st Anniversary!

Because 2020 was not a time for festivities …we PROMISE to make this year’s celebration one to remember!

The night begins at 7:00 pm with a virtual AROUND THE WORLD SCAVENGER HUNT from WATSON ADVENTURES

Game followed by kick off of AUCTION!!!
tickets $31p/p

**WHAT DO WE NEED FROM YOU ?
The Gala Committee asks all PTA members (that’s all of us…parents
of PPAS students) to help with contributing items to the PPAS AUCTION, which will take place on Bidding for Good .  Please ask your neighborhood businesses, friends, family, after-school classes or workplace for a donation item or service we can auction at the GALA. 

We’ll send an email following this one explaining in greater detail all the different types of items that make great auction items. 

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE… the celebration is around the corner so we ask that we all reach out to at least 1 friend, neighborhood business, family member TODAY…that’s just 1. If each one does so we will secure funding for our students and expand further on opportunities to come!

PROVIDED FOR YOU: 
1. Donation form
2. QR Code to download so you don’t have to carry anything with you.
The QR Code links directly to the donation form (place phone’s camera on the bar code image below).
3. Sample solicitation letters (emailed to you separately), which you’re welcome to use or give ideas to compose your own.

Giving Thanks for Support

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for helping PPAS!
We couldn’t shape the lives of so many performing arts kids without the generous support from parents like you.


PLEASE CLICK TO SUPPORT PPAS

During this Thanksgiving Holiday leading into Giving Tuesday, please consider a gift to the PTA’s Annual Fund which supports PPAS and means so much to our kids. We still need your generous support to reach our fundraising goals for this unique and challenging school year.  Donating is super easy and only takes only a few minutes on your computer or smartphone at this website: ppaspta.org/donate
Your generous donation directly funds:


Just a reminder: these events are not funded by the Department of Education. Each year our amazing PPAS community works together to help support our children’s hearts and minds.
We encourage you to give any amount your family is able to give (parents, grandparents, etc). Every dollar counts to meet our goals for this school year! All donations are tax deductible and truly make a difference in our community! Online donations are being accepted now at ppaspta.org/donate

WE HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL AND SAFE THANKSGIVING WITH YOUR FAMILY!

This May Scare You

We hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween weekend!

You know what’s also scary? NYC school budget cuts!
That’s why PPAS needs your help more than ever!

Many of you answered the call last month and we appreciate your generous support. But since so many PPAS fundraisers have been cancelled due to the pandemic, we need our entire community to pitch in please! Any amount (one-time or recurring) can really help.

PLEASE CLICK TO HELP NOW

Please donate to strengthen our kids’ performance arts education and support for our incredible programs and teachers.

Even a modest donation will help improve the lives of our efforts to support PPAS students. Donating only takes only a few minutes on your computer or smartphone.
