On behalf of Balboa Elementary School in Glendale California, we are writing to request a donation for the school’s annual fundraiser of the year.  The Balboa Elementary Spring Fling Car Show & Carnival will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2018 at Balboa Elementary School in Glendale California.  It is a school and community event to raise funds for our school.  Part of this event is a raffle and a silent auction.  At last year’s event, we had close to 500 attendees and we expect even more this year.  We are looking for any donations, including item/activity donations that we can include for our class basket for our event.  Monetary donations will directly benefit our students.

 Balboa Elementary is a public education school serving over 800 students – Kindergarten through 6th grade.  Our school has a long history and opened its doors in 1930.  We were designated a California Distinguished School in 2012.  Our school’s goals are: to provide a rigorous academic curriculum; to develop a passion for learning and leadership and to create a positive learning experience for our students, our community and everyone they reach.  Our school is undergoing a major construction renovation and we are excited to be able to continue to develop leaders for the next generation.


Your donation greatly helps support programs and enrichment activities for all our students.  In tough economic times, direct donations not only aide in supplementing existing programs, but they allow the PTA to award money for fieldtrips, to expand extracurricular education offerings at the school and to buy basic school supplies that can last throughout the school years.
