Dear Neighbors,

We are a group of dedicated Greenpoint parents writing on behalf of PS 34 Oliver H. Perry, to invite you to be a part of our upcoming silent auction.

P.S. 34 ‐ the longest continually operating public school in NYC ‐ is known for its history of academic achievement and wide range of enrichment and arts programs. But, we are most proud of its warm and welcoming approach to education and community involvement. We are a small but mighty elementary school thanks to the incredible engagement of local community and business leaders like you. The success of our fundraiser is largely due to generous in‐kind donors who support our mission by providing items for our silent auction.

We invite you to be a part of this tradition by donating an item or service to our second annual Winter Auction, which will be held December 2nd ‐ December 12th, 2018. All of the proceeds from our silent auction will be invested in services and programming for our elementary school students, including Lego Robotics, Theater, Music, Dance, Art and STEM. Your support for these enrichments will directly impact the lives of hundreds of children and strengthen our community as a whole.

Your donation, in addition to being tax‐deductible, provides a wonderful opportunity for you to gain exposure to potential customers while supporting a worthwhile cause. With your donation, your business will be recognized and promoted online through our auction website, various social media channels, popular local parenting email listservs, and on physical and digital marketing materials that will reach thousands of households in and around the community. You will also receive a PS 34 owl decal to hang in your business window to let our community know that you are a supporter of our school.

We are a registered 501(c)(3) tax‐exempt non‐profit organization and your donation to this auction is tax deductible to the fullest extent under the law. In addition to a receipt for your donation, we will send you documentation confirming your support of our 501(c)(3) organization, which may lower your taxes/increase your tax return.

Thank you in advance for your time and your generous donation. We look forward to partnering with you! If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at

With gratitude,
The P.S. 34 PTA/Winter Auction Committee
