Dear Local Business Owner,
On March 25, 2017, the Henderson International school PTA will be holding our largest fundraiser of the year – our fourth annual silent auction. All proceeds of this event will help fund PTA sponsored events throughout the school year, as well as our philanthropy efforts. Henderson International School PTA is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization that works hand-in-hand with teachers, school administration, and parents to enhance the joy and well being of HIS students. Collectively, we work to build a sense of inclusion and community which complements and enriches the learning environment. HIS PTA achieves this by hosting on-campus events such as the Back to School BBQ, Student Triathlon, Scholastic Book Fair, Holiday Shop, Spring Fling carnival, Muffins with Moms, Donuts with Dads, and Summer Kickoff. HIS PTA hosts nine annual Teacher Appreciation events. Additionally, the PTA hosts off-campus family fun nights, and co-hosts adults-only “Night Out for a Cause” charity-driven social mixers in partnership with Fabulous Shoe Night Las Vegas.
HIS PTA has a strong focus on promoting philanthropy and helping our students plan activities and organize programs that support the Greater Las Vegas community, which in turn teaches our children to be good local and global citizens. This year, HIS PTA’s Philanthropy Committee has selected Project 150 as our beneficiary. Project 150 is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to offer support and services to Las Vegas’ homeless teens to enable and encourage them to stay in high school. Our students recently collected over 7,600 pairs of socks during a SOCKTOBER collection drive – it was the largest sock donation that Project 150 has ever received from children. Kids helping kids.
In order to provide these events, HIS PTA raises funds year-round through various channels, and our largest fundraiser is our annual Silent Auction. The success of our auction exclusively depends on individuals and businesses who generously donate auction items. Not only does your donation benefit our organization, it benefits your business is well. By donating items to our silent auction, your business will be promoted to an impressive out reach of over 400 attendees made up of Henderson International School families and friends. Your business and/or logo will be included in marketing materials that will be sent home to all of the families, as well as be on display at the auction. Your business will be able to send in marketing collateral and signs to be displayed with your donated items at the auction tables. Donated items may include but are not limited to gift baskets, gift certificates, Single gift items, or professional services. If you are in a profession that does not allow donation of services, you may consider purchasing a gift item that is donated on behalf of your business.
Please review the silent auction donation form below. If you would like to donate an item, please complete the form and we will arrange pick up of the item. HIS PTA is a non‐profit organization; you will receive a receipt which may be use for filing with your taxes.
Thank you in advance for your consideration of a donation! The PTA, students, and families appreciate your support in making our school such a special place to attend. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at 702-466-2767 or email JenGrantPTA@gmail.com.
