2017 Auction

The PS 199 Annual Auction is the PTA’s largest fundraising event of the year – and one heck of a party! Last year’s auction was a sold out event and raised over $300k for our school.

Planning for this year’s auction is in full swing. We need your help to make this year an even bigger success.

Saturday, April 1, 2017, 6-10 pm | Stage 48 | 605 West 48th Street

We’ve put together a kit to help you solicit items that includes a letter explaining the auction, a donation form, and tips on asking for donations.

Paper donation form – print and complete this paper form to submit donations to our auction.

Electronic donation form – complete this electronic form to submit donations to our auction.

Tips – provides help for asking businesses for donations and includes a list of the types of items that perform best

Wishlist  – list of businesses that we’d like to receive donations from. Sign up by ones you’re willing to contact.

Corporate Sponsorships & Advertising Opportunities

Sponsoring our auction is a great way for local (and global) businesses to reach our parent body. All sponsors will have logo presence on auction materials. In the past, we’ve had camps, banks, and other businesses sponsor our auction. If you have a business that may be interested in sponsorship, please contact the auction chairs for more details. We’re happy to help sell this opportunity.
