Hello PAPA Families!
We hope everyone had a great break and were able to relax a little bit!
We’re back and hoping to hit the ground running!
Our Spaghetti Dinner this year is going to be held on Friday, October 17th at the Hotel Cascada.
THIS DATE IS DIFFERENT FROM WHAT WAS STATED ON THE SAVE THE DATE FLIERS!! If you received an orange “Save the Date” Flier at registration…we had to change the date due to an unforeseen conflict, so please change your calendar if you already marked it in November!
Tickets will be available at the Open House on Tuesday for pre-sale at $15 for adults and $10 for students. After the Open House tickets will be $20 for adults, $15 for students and tables of 10 will be available for $150.
We have SOLD OUT during the last 2 years…so please plan to get your tickets early!!! Once we have sold all the tickets we will be at capacity and not be allowed to sell more! NO TICKETS will be sold after October 6th…so please plan accordingly.
For those of you new to PAPA, the Spaghetti Dinner is one of the main fundraisers of the year for the Parent-Teacher-Student Organization (PTSO) at PAPA. Last year numerous attendees commented that “This dinner was the best one yet!”–and we seem to get that after each event! (Thank goodness!) All profits from the dinner support either our teachers, staff, or students (or all of them!)
This year will be the 6th annual dinner and will be our first year at this location. Admission to the dinner includes not only dinner, but a show by our very own PAPA students. Auditions for Spaghetti Dinner Performances will be announced soon, so if your student or students are interested in performing…make sure they are working on their acts!
Our Venue this year will be large enough to accommodate our silent auction which has been the biggest percentage of funds each year we have been able to hold it. (We were not able to have the silent auction last year due to space limitations at the venue.)
We will be asking PAPA Families to help us with donations for our silent auction. If you or a family member or friend have a business or hobby where they would be willing to donate an item for us please either bring us the item or let us know who they are so we can obtain the item(s) from them. When donating items would you please include the name and contact information of the person donating the item(s), the value of the item and any amount the donor would recommend we begin the bidding at. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and all donations without compensation will receive a tax deduction letter for their taxes.
We will accept donations for the Silent Auction at the Open House!
We always have some door prizes pulled at the dinner, and look for donations for these items as well. If you happen to have some nice, small items at home that you have received as gifts or have some new things laying around the house that you might like to get for a little door prize…please bring it by for us!
Please contact me with any questions or comments or suggestions regarding this year’s Spaghetti Dinner or Silent Auction please let me know!
Further on down the line we will be asking for volunteers to help with chaperoning, sitting in on audition decisions, ushers, admission table, general helpers at the event, etc!
Thanks in advance for your support!
