Hyde-Addison Auction Letter

Dear Hyde-Addison families,

You are invited to attend Hyde’s Annual PTA Auction & Gala - “Puttin On The Ritz” - a 1920s cocktail & jazz party at Georgetown University’s Copley Formal Lounge on Saturday March 11, 2017, from 6:30-10:30pm.

Together, we hope to raise over $60,000 to support innovative curricula, teacher training, supplies, books and experiential learning opportunities. Many local businesses have generously donated fantastic auction items, and well as delicious food and drinks for a spectacular evening.

Many of you have been asking what you can do to help….

  • Attend auction committee meetings to help with planning
  • Reach out to potential donors by sending solicitation letters and emails or make phone calls and in-person visits
  • Leverage your contacts to get donations from local businesses and families of current and past Hyde students. Season tickets to sporting events and stays at vacation homes are particularly hot items!
  • Donate gift certificates or other items --Think creatively about auction items you can contrib-ute: Do you have a special talent? If so, your sushi, cupcakes, babysitting, knitting, or party-planning skills could be a great auction item!

Please complete the attached form and provide it to the front desk of the Hyde building or email it to

We hope to see you for an unforgettable evening! Ticket prices are $75 in advance and $100 at the door. Dinner and drinks are included.

Make sure you save the date on your calendar for this great opportunity to bid, talk, eat, drink, dance and put on the ritz with the rest of the Hyde community.
