Tarrytown School Foundation to Host Annual Benefit at Portuguese Club
by Shelly W. Colley –
After many years of hosting the Foundation for the Public Schools of the Tarrytown’s annual spring benefit in local area hotels and country clubs, the Foundation has chosen a new and vibrant community venue.
This year, the Foundation will be heading to the Portuguese American Cultural Center on Franklin Street in Tarrytown, on April 21, for its 24th annual Spring Benefit. It has become a much-anticipated evening to catch up with friends, enjoy terrific food and drinks, dance the night away, and of course raise money to make a positive impact for all students in our community.
The event will begin at 7 p.m. An open bar, silent and live auctions, a paddle raise, and plenty of dancing and music, comprise just a few of the fun features in store for the evening. One new fundraising addition will be the wine wall. Guests, who buy raffle tickets, will be able to “pull” a random bottle of wine from a wall, with a chance to win a valued bottle.
Founded in 1993, the Foundation is a 501(c)3 which addresses the diverse needs and strengths of all our students. As a result of our fundraising, the Foundation serves as an “education incubator,” working with teachers, administrators and students to provide grants for innovative programs that will inspire and better engage all students across arts, sciences, humanities, athletics and other enrichment programs. At the same time, the Foundation provides support to help ensure that all our students can participate together in the District’s educational enrichment activities.
