2017 NHE Auction and Gala
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 auction, "Into the Woods", was held on March 4 at Northwood Country Club, and raised more than $69,000 for NHE. The NHE PTA thanks all the individuals and businesses who donated items, purchased items, attended our event, or otherwise supported the 2017 Auction. We could not have done it without you! Thank You!
What does the money raised at the Auction pay for?
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 new Teaching Garden; 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; Falcon Field Day; robotics club; and many other special programs.
The PTA Ways and Means Committee is currently planning for the 2017 Auction and is accepting item donations. If you are interested in supporting our event with a donation or sponsorship, please contact Ways and Means Chair Amy Houstoun at email@example.com.
