Dear Friend:

Garden School will be holding our 2017 Garden Gala on Friday, March 31st at Terrace on the Park. We are pleased to be celebrating ninety-four years of educating children in the Queens Community.

We are looking forward to celebrating the honorees above for the 2017 Gala with you.

This year we are changing up our format by holding a Cocktail Party worthy of Gala Status! Join us for hearty hors d’oeuvres, wonderful food choices at various stations, open bar and, of course, dessert! Our DJ Michael is back, so dust off your dancing shoes! Mingle with old friends and new as we tempt you with our traditional Silent Auction, and our Scholarship Pledge, the reason we come together as a community.

All funds from this year’s auction and dinner will benefit our children directly. The Gala will be both a celebration of our community and a fundraiser to support its future through enriching our children’s educational experience.

You can help us accomplish our goal by joining with us and making a donation to our Auction or taking an advertisement in our Journal. Garden School is a Not for Profit 501(c)3 organization, Tax ID: 111631783.

Families, alumni and friends will join in celebrating the extraordinary achievements of Garden School. All of the auction lots are donated to the school by generous businesses and members of our school community. Please contact us at to make arrangements or call us at (718) 335-6363. All donations will benefit Garden School and its students and are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Donations need to be received by March 10th, 2017.

Thank you for your continued support of Garden School. We look forward to a wonderful celebration on March 31st, 2017.

Chair, 2017 Garden Gala Committee
