Holy Rosary Bilingual Academy
Dear HRBA Families,
Our annual Gala is just around the corner. I know it will be a fantastic event, but we need to firm up attendees, food numbers, and all the rest pretty soon. Things come up so quickly after Christmas!! I have heard from many of you that you are interested but have not yet purchased tickets. While this fabulous event used to be $150 per person, we are discounting tickets for our parents to $60 per person. This includes a dinner, entertainment, and dancing, as well as a select auction. Sarah McKinney has been working so hard to put this event together, but we need you in order to make this a success. This event is our largest of the year and we have a goal to raise $175,000 in one night. WOW!! This allows us to fully support our scholarship program, as well as other vital aspects of our budget. Can you attend?? We are even offering free babysitting for all who purchase tickets by February 14th. What better Valentine's present than a date night out...while supporting your school/community. So, please consider not only attending yourself, but also sharing the event via FB, Instagram, email, and word of mouth. We really need to make this a success and we cannot do it without you and your friends and family. It will be a great night! To purchase tickets online please visit: https://hrba.ejoinme.org/Gala2020 and select the purchase tickets link. You will need to enter the following code to receive the discounted rate HRBAFam20. If you are attending the Gala as a guest and are hoping to secure free childcare for the night of the Gala please sign-up with Nina in the office. Thank you for your support!
Have a great week!

It will be an exciting evening, students will be singing and dancing to entertain the crowd and showcase their bilingual skills. This is a very important fundraising event for our school with a financial goal of $175,000. The primary funds raised during the evening go to fund tuition assistance programs. We cannot provide scholarships without a successful evening!
If you are looking for volunteer hours we also need you! We will need help with decorations, set-up, event assistance, and clean-up. The online volunteer sign-up is available here: https://hrba.ejoinme.org/Gala2020Volunteer
Last Call: $100 Auction Family Commitments are due Friday, February 7, 2020!
As noted on the Financial Agreement, each Holy Rosary family is required to contribute to the annual Auction (formerly Crab Feed). We will accept donations equal to or greater than $100 in value in the form of cash or check, gift cards to local restaurants, businesses, sporting events, or places of interest. Families may also provide vouchers for goods and services such as catering, lawn maintenance, baked goods, etc. At the auction, there will be a wine toss game. If you would like, you can donate wine towards your $100 commitment. We can provide donation forms, if you prefer to solicit your items from a local business, stop by the office to grab a form.
When turning in your auction items to the office, we will ask you to fill out a form with an item description and value. This allows us to track these as in kind donations.
You can easily pay your $100 procurement commitment online here: https://hrba.ejoinme.org/Auction2020Procurement
If the item or payment is not received by February 7, families will be invoiced $150.
***Items are subject to procurement committee approval.***
