Dancing Through The Decades – 120 years of TPS!
Why is there a TPS benefit every year?
Tuxedo Park School’s annual benefit auction is a fundraising event with the dual purpose of getting the school community together for a fun night out! Last year this event took place at The Tuxedo Club but in 2020, as we celebrate our 120th year, we are bringing the party back to school. Of course, our decorating committee will completely transform our space into an event worthy of our theme. We hope you will come to dance through the decades with us!
Our evening begins with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and a chance to peruse the silent auction. Following a live auction, the DJ turns up the volume and guests will dance the night away! Attire is fun, festive or costumed by your favorite decade. Go wild!
Why is the annual benefit so important to TPS?
Each year, the benefit committee works so hard to put on a great party and raise much needed funds for the school. Money is raised through ticket sales, journal ads purchased by families and local businesses, sponsorships of aspects of the event, and proceeds from silent and live auction sales. All net proceeds help to offset the cost of tuition and help bridge the gap between operating budget and expenses to run the school.
A special portion of the event, known as Raise Your Paddle, is dedicated to raising funds for a specific project or program. The focus in the past few years has been on maintaining and improving our beautiful, historic campus.
This just in…This year, in order to be more environmentally conscious, we have decided to reduce the number of journals printed. The journal will be available to everyone online, a week prior to the event. The new journal format will reduce cost and waste, and provide a fresh and engaging user experience.
You are needed in SO many ways…
We would love your input and boots on the ground help! Volunteering for this event is a great way to make friends and feel a part of something big for TPS! There are lots of ways to help and myriad ways to secure your spot at this event. Please talk to Fiona Duffy about all the possibilities.
