PTFA NEWS Gala 2016

We are thrilled to say that we are almost a sell-out with numbers very high as expected!

It's not too late to book on, however please be mindful that on the 3rd June we will be closing the bookings or before that if it's a sell-out. Don’t forget to also like our Facebook page (Ivanhoe East Primary School Gala Dinner 2016). If you are a table captain Bec will be contacting you to ensure all of your guests have booked as we would hate for people to miss out on this fantastic night!

Thanks to everyone for being so supportive of the organising committee. It's so nice to hear the excitement around the school and know that all our hard work will be appreciated.

Bec Bolden and Leanne Cusinato.

Save the Date GALA

Did you know we are just $40,000 short on the cost for the TOTAL Upgrade of the School oval??? The objective of the Gala this year is to raise as much as possible with all funds raised go directly towards the Oval Redevelopment Fund. The Fundraising side of things are running 'full steam' ahead. 

Raffle tickets have gone home via the eldest child of each family. The School Raffle is a MAJOR fundraiser of the Gala so please attempt to sell your whole book of tickets; extra books are available at the office. The tickets cost $5 each or 5 for $20 (10 tickets/book) and there are 12 prizes to be won. 

Please return the money and ticket stubs to your child’s classroom in the envelope provided by Wednesday June 15 2016 at the very latest. This year there is a book seller’s prize ($50 Westfield Voucher) for someone who has sold a complete book and returned it to the office by Monday June 6 and a $50 Westfield voucher for the person who sells the most books. Please fill in the stub at the end of the book once you have sold all the tickets. 

Thank you to the people and businesses listed below for your amazing support and donations towards our fundraising at the Gala (a complete list will be advertised just before the event). 

If you have pledged to donate item/s for auctions etc. please be mindful that these will have to be finalised and written up well before the event and will need to be delivered to the school office from now and up to 3 June.
