The NHE Auction and Gala is our largest fundraiser of the year. This adults-only event features a dinner, dancing, and live and silent auction events, as more than 200 NHE parents and other supporters come together for a great party to support a great cause - our neighborhood school.
This year's event was Saturday, March 7 at Venue Forty50 in Addison and included dinner, dancing, and both silent and live auctions!
Our theme this year was Birds of all feathers flock together. The event was cocktail attire, and attendees were encouraged to wear accessories or outfits with feather accents.
HOW DOES THE MONEY RAISED AT THE AUCTION SUPPORT NORTHWOOD HILLS ELEMENTARY?
Outside of what the district allocated funds can provide for our school, the NHE PTA provides additional funding each year so that NHE students can enjoy an array of activities and enhancements, including: our Teaching Garden aka Freddie's Farm; the Think Tank STEM learning lab; student field trips to destinations including the Perot Museum, Dallas Arboretum Children's Garden, and Dallas Zoo; stipends for classroom teachers to purchase additional materials; extra books and reading materials for the Library and classroom use; the Accelerated Reader program; Reflex Math, Falcon Field Day; robotics club; and many other special programs.
The PTA Ways and Means Committee is currently planning for the 2020 Auction and is accepting item donations. If you are interested in supporting our event with a donation or sponsorship, please contact our Fundraising Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
