Dear Hyde-Addison Supporter,

I am writing to ask for your assistance with an exciting event: Hyde-Addison’s Annual Spring Auction & Gala!  We know there are many demands on your generosity, but we hope you will consider making a donation this year. Your contribution of a financial sponsorship or auction item enables our school to continue to provide a supportive environment and an excellent education to D.C. Public School pre-K and elementary school students. This year we hope to provide even greater support by generating funds to augments arts programming, teacher training, books and technology that will benefit Hyde’s diverse student population.  With your help, we intend to raise over $50,000 for the school!

This well-attended event, always popular with Hyde families, friends, and neighbors of the Georgetown campus will take place this year at the Copley Formal Lounge at Georgetown University, on Saturday March 3, 2018, from 6:30-10:30pm.

Your donation will be featured to about 200 guests and to the greater community of Hyde families and supporters through newsletter and/or website recognition.  To make a donation, simply complete one of the attached donation forms (keeping one copy for your files) return it to the Hyde-Addison PTA via mail or email or submit one online at https://hae.schoolauction.net/80sprom/give. All contributions are tax deductible. The deadline to return the donation form is February 20, 2018, to give us time to list and describe items on the materials distributed at the auction.

Hyde-Addison is a public elementary school in Georgetown for 320 students, grades Pre-K3 through 5.
