GALA — Saturday May 11, 6:30pm to 11:00pm

BSI’s 10th Annual Year-End Gala and Auction will take place on Saturday, May 11, at Roulette in Downtown Brooklyn. Join BSI parents and staff to celebrate our school’s 10th anniversary!  To celebrate 10 Years and how far our little school has come, we are imagining BSI at 100 with this year’s theme Future Fever

Gala and the Gala Auction are our largest fun(d)raising events!

HELP US GET AUCTION ITEMS 

You can solicit exciting items and experiences for online bidding and silent auction. Think gift certificates to restaurants and spas, stays at vacation homes, museum and activity passes, VIP nights out, fine jewelry and accessories, personal services (chefs, interior design, etc.), gourmet gift baskets, and the like.  Here are some great donation ideas.

Consult our donation grid and reach out to businesses under the “Gala” tabs of the spreadsheet. Here are some tools to help you close the deal:

Template for Email Solicitation 

Template for Merchant Solicitation Letter

Blank BSI PTO Letterhead

Once you land the donation, you or the donor can enter the auction item details in our online submission form. A paper form can also be submitted.

For questions, email auction@bsipto.org.

BUY OR SELL A GALA PROGRAM AD

You can also help by buying or selling ads in our full-color keepsake Gala Program. Please take a look at a previous year’s Gala Program for samples of personal, business and class ads. Ads can be paid for and submitted by mailing in a paper form.

Use this sample email to remind someone to buy an ad.

DEADLINE FOR BUSINESS or PERSONAL PROGRAM ADS IS APRIL 28
PAYMENT DUE BY MAY 11

Families of graduates and grandparents are especially encouraged to buy an ad to congratulate a particular BSI student on a job well done. Rich in sentimental value, these ads range from: one-eighth page ($100), one-quarter page ($200), one-half page ($300), and a full page ad ($400, special Graduates rate).

For questions related to ads, please email bsigalaprogramads@gmail.com.
