About the Spring Gala

Dear PS/IS 78Q Families,

We would like to sincerely thank all of you who have so generously participated in our 5th Annual Spring Gala and Silent Auction whether through contributions, raffle and ticket purchases, auction item donations, event attendance and bidding, or all of the above! The May 8th event at Maiella was a great success thanks to your support and we were able to make a net profit of $45,300. Proceeds will go towards enrichment programs, teacher’s assistants, recess support, arts & language programs and much more.

We would like to thank Sara Taylor, Tiloma Kumar, and Jessica Estrada-Watson for creating our first ever Sponsorship packet, which helped us secure over $20,000 in sponsor donations and over $5,000 in ad purchases. Thank you to our Sponsors Plaxall, TF Cornerstone, RockRose, Halstead, Astoria Bank, Modern Spaces, Rick Rosa for Douglas Elliman, Hunter’s Point South Living, LIC Dental Associates, The Yoga Room, and the Factory LIC for their generous donations. Many of our sponsors attended our event and look forward to partnering with us in the future! Thank you to our fabulous team who worked tirelessly to make this evening a tremendous success, Clodagh Fraccari, Maryam Mizani-Bertrand, Cheryl Watson, Mona Le Roy, Bea Murphy, Victoria P. Lerman, the PTA Executive Board Team and a special thank you to Jessica Estrada-Watson for designing and creating our invite and Spring Gala program. Thank you to Tommy Demaras and the Maiella team for hosting our fundraiser and parent and chef Raffaele Solinas for the delicious spread! Thank you to our talented musician and MC, parent Emmet O’Malley, for entertaining us the entire evening!

We feel fortunate to be able to serve our school community and we could not have done this without you! We appreciate your dedication to our wonderful children who deserve an excellent education!

Please mark your calendars for our Annual Spring Fair, Saturday June 10th, on Center Blvd. in front of the ECC from 11-3pm. Parent Volunteers are needed! Please scroll up to the PS/IS 78Q Spring Fair section for more information on how to sign up and help.

Kindest Regards,

The PS/IS 78Q PTA Executive Board
