McGilvra Elementary School Auction 2020Gala/Party for McGilvra PTA Seattle Council 6 15 237
Apr 25, 2020 from 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM
On April 25, 2020, the McGilvra PTA will host an auction event at SODO Park for +/- 250 attendees. With both a silent and live auction, this event is our most critical and raises the most money of all our fundraisers. Held every 2 years, we hope to raise $200,000 to support and enhance our programs.
McGilvra Elementary is an exceptional public school in the heart of Madison Park. Each year, we rely on the generosity of our community to raise funds that provide additional staffing for our small school, including a math specialist, reading tutors, and a school counselor. These positions are currently NOT funded by Seattle Public Schools and are funded directly by our PTA. We also rely on these funds to further teacher training and bolster McGilvra’s excellent art program.
Washington State has some of the lowest education funding in the country. With diminishing funds to operate the school, the demands on our PTA to close the funding gap are increasing. Donations to the PTA are needed now more than ever to fund our beloved neighborhood school.
Thank you for your support and consideration.
