Fort Lee, New Jersey (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
International provider of silent auction items and fundraising ideas, Charity Fundraising Packages is pleased to announce their partnership with The Weiss School for gifted children from pre-kindergarten through to 8th grade. The private school serves nearly 250 students and has a core focus on technology and creativity.
Dr. Denise Spirou, Head of School is thrilled to share about the upcoming school fundraising event where 100% of the proceeds go directly to the school. “We’re very thankful for our title sponsor, Comvest Partners, who has helped to allow 100% of the proceeds to go directly back to the School. The event this year is a bit different than our auction and dinner events of the past and we’re very excited!”
Rather than the traditional gala dinner fundraiser, The Weiss School opted to host a Monte Carlo-themed evening which includes casino-style gambling, DJ, dancing, a lavish cocktail hour and sushi bar as well as a live and silent auction. Josh Hirsch, Director of Development for The Weiss School comments, “We’re excited to be working with Charity Fundraising Packages again this year on the live and silent auction. The Rolling Stones autographed guitar and the one-of-a-kind Michael Jackson “Beat It” Jacket are sure to excite our guests and drive high bids to support our students.”
Phillip Ryan, Director Of Media Relations for Charity Fundraising Packages shares, “We’ve worked with Josh for several years now and we’re thrilled to assist The Weiss School with their upcoming event. Our organization is dedicated to providing authentic, charity auction items to non-profits on a zero-risk consignment basis so there’s no upfront cost prior to the event.”
Other exciting items that will be on display at the auction include a pick-up flag football game with 2-time NFL MVP Miami Dolphins O.J. McDuffie and the last remaining box of Twinkies in all of Palm Beach County. Also on display will be artwork and unique projects made by the students at The Weiss School.
The event will be held on Saturday, March 16th at Admirals Cove Country Club in Jupiter, FL. Tickets are available by logging on to http://bit.ly/WeissSchoolGala
