Hello Condit Families!

As many of you know, for the past few years, Condit has hosted a Spring Gala to raise funds to benefit the school. Well, this year, we are doing things a little differently – we are hosting a NO SHOW GALA!

A WHAT?!?!?

Like you, we feel the second half of the school year is packed with events, holidays, sports and more. It is so hard to do it all in just five months. However, Condit’s Spring Gala is crucial for the PTO to pay for creative learning experiences, supplies, and the newly announced chicken coop!

WHAT IS A NO-SHOW GALA?
The 2020 Condit No Show Gala invites you to stay home for a good cause. No need to buy a dress, shine your shoes, or get a babysitter. Don’t worry about getting there on time, being fashionably late, or showing up at all; you can stay home, eat whatever you’d like, pop in your favorite DVD, and get to bed at a reasonable hour.

We promise not to waste your money on frivolous decorations, catered rubber chickens, or a DJ with fancy lights. All proceeds will benefit the Condit PTO and in turn, Condit Elementary and all of its staff and students.

The NO SHOW GALA will take place on Thursday, February 20, 2020, from 6 am to 10 pm. There will be an online auction platform that all parents will be able to log-in and access auction items and experiences, all to benefit Condit Elementary. There will be a few physical items to bid on, but it will mostly be fun and unique experiences generously donated by teachers, parents and organizations in our community.

How can you, as Condit families, help?

WHAT IS A SOCIAL? Socials are themed events for kids or parents with spots available to bidders/guests for purchase. Social fundraisers can be planned for kids or adults: you pick! Plan a social open to your class, your student’s grade level, or based on a common interest.

WHY HOST A SOCIAL? Socials are key to the success of our fundraising efforts as the revenue generated by these events helps support the operational and academic needs of our school. Hosting a social promotes school spirit, gives students/parents an opportunity to grow friendships outside the classroom, and is a great way to raise money for Condit.

HOW DO I HOST A SOCIAL? Sign up to host a social by emailing Melanie Spelkin at melaniespelkin@gmail.com! Please make sure to include the specifics: student or parent event, who is hosting, date/time, theme, number of open spots, and price per participant. Socials will be available for bidding only during the online auction at the Condit No-Show Gala.

Here are some donation examples:
• Parent socials – Wine/scotch tasting; Bollywood party; Axe throwing party; Mom’s Night Out; Pilates class – use your imagination – if you would have fun doing it, others will too!
• Student socials – End of year party (swim/ice cream social); Bounce house and popsicles; Back to school party; Roller skating party; Movie on the Lawn; Mini-Spa party
• We are also looking for sporting event tickets or show tickets, or gift cards to fun restaurants around town.

In addition to the wonderful auction items donated by our community and parents, we will be auctioning off items that the teachers need in their classrooms to finish out the school year. Guess what!? You can purchase a ball for Coach Johnson for just $10, art supplies for Ms. Camero for $25, or go big and buy Condit the Chicken Coop that has been approved for 2nd and 4th grade science classes!

The PTO does an incredible job of fundraising and budgeting each year, but this is an opportunity for us to help them continue their efforts as we near the end of the school year!

Keep your plans or stay home and put on your pajamas and join us for the NO SHOW GALA! Your contribution will make a difference!

Thank you in advance!
