Dear Neighbors and Friends of Fort Hamilton High School,

 

The Fort Hamilton High School Parent Teacher Association will be hosting our 11th Annual Spring Gala on April 13th, 2018 at 7:00pm at Fort Hamilton High School (located on Shore Road and 83rd Street in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn).  Fort Hamilton is the 2nd largest high school in NYC with about 4,600 students that have many wonderful programs like Honors, Music, Drama, Dance, Sports, Clubs and ROTC that we would love to continue to support!

 

We would appreciate any donations your organization or business could provide. The donation can be in the form of a gift certificate for services or merchandise, which can be redeemed after the auction by the winners. Your organization will receive a letter acknowledging your contribution and will be advertised in our Auction Journal as a participant in Fort Hamilton’s Annual Spring Gala.  Please include your name and/or business card with your donation.

 

This is our largest fundraiser for the year.  In order to maintain our goal, we need the support of all our families, friends, teachers, and community.  We hope you will find it in your hearts and budgets to make a donation on behalf of our remarkable school.  Many of our teachers, parents and students patronize your place of business.  Your donation will show them you truly care.

 

If you have helped us in the past, we thank you for your donations and hope you can assist us again this year. If you are new to the neighborhood, we hope you will take this opportunity to show your support. Last year our auction featured products and services donated by many local businesses, sports teams, restaurants, and professional friends.  Our Spring Gala is an evening of fun that brings our community together with our neighbors, friends, family, teachers and supporters.
