Spring Benefit: Parent's Night Out!

Join other Henking/Hoffman parents for a fun night with Jori Rose & The Thorns at Hangar Two on June 2nd! Heavy hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, and a Silent Auction (featuring class baskets) will round out the evening. We anticipate that this event will sell out quickly, so get your tickets now.

Volunteers are also needed to help secure donations for the silent auction and help with day-of set up. Our goal is to organize 30-50 items that will be offered as a stand alone offering or paired with a couple of other items to form a package. If you are interested in joining the PTA silent auction committee (even an hour or so a week would help!), please email Michelle Greenhaw at eventsponsorships@hehopta.org.
