P.S. 8, our local public elementary (and soon to be middle as well) school will hold its Spring Gala on Friday, March 23, from 8:00 to 11:00 p.m, at the Powerhouse Arena in DUMBO, at 37 Main Street (corner of Water). There will be cocktails, hors d’ouevres, and both live and silent auctions. Amy Klein, the P.S. 8 parent in charge of the auctions, says:
We have over 200 items, really great stuff this year, including sporting tickets, jewelry, restaurants, summer camps, and some great unique experiences. Of course all the funds will go toward paying for teachers’ aides, enrichment, things that other schools might take for granted.
All are invited. The admission is $58 for an individual, $108 for a couple if reserved in advance (go to www.ps8brooklyn.org/spring benefit to reserve or for more information) or $88 per person at the door. There will also be an online-only auction of tickets to the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in L.A. If interested, go here.
