The 2018 Spring Benefit
The 2018 Spring Benefit was held on Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 6:00–10:00 p.m. at the Sharon Heights Golf and Country Club. We'd like to extend another BIG thank-you to all of our volunteers and staff who helped pull the entire evening together. Without their dedicated leadership and support, we'd have missed out on what was, by all accounts, an amazingly fun way to be together as a community and to support the students, teachers, and PBS program we all hold so dear.
There was an unprecedented level of support received from the community in assembling silent auction items, Party for PBS events, and class gift baskets. In one way or another, it seems we have everyone at PBS to thank for the success of our Benefit - a testament to the unparalleled spirit of this community. So thank you! We can't wait to see what next year has in store. (Speaking of which, mark your calendar now for Saturday, April 27, 2019.)
- Gifts specified for Fund-A-Student – or made during the paddle-raise – fund next year’s financial aid budget, allowing us to make the full cost of attending PBS affordable for a wide array of families.
- All other unrestricted net proceeds from the Spring Benefit go toward two funding areas:
- Professional Development – Providing financial resources at the top of our peer group so our teachers can continue to develop their expertise, have direct access to leading experts and research in the field, and bring what they learn back into the classroom.
- Program Growth – Enhancing curricula to improve PBS academics and drive new initiatives, providing access to cutting-edge research in a variety of fields, including PBS’s distinctive Curriculum Deep Dive program and the emotional intelligence program.
Party for PBS
Parties for PBS come in three varieties: parents-only, kids-only, and family parties. These events raise funds to support program initiatives at PBS and, more importantly, serve to build community and celebrate generosity year-round. Party hosts agree to cover the costs of each party so that 100% of each ticket sold goes to the school. If you are interested in hosting a party, please contact Christina Campbell.
