FRIDAY November 11th, 2016
This is the third year the PTSA is hosting The BASH, a fundraising event to raise money for the direct giving campaign which includes funding three Para-professional salaries, hosting over 10 PTSA community events, teacher grants and additional school field trips. The evening will consist of a cocktail reception, seated dinner and live entertainment. The event is primarily a fundraiser, but also an opportunity for parents, staff and teachers to have a fun evening out and to enjoy each other’s company.
What is the financial goal?
The PTSA has the goal to raise $89,000 for the 2016-2017 school year. The BASH’s goal is to raise a $42,000.
How will this event raise money?
During the event there will be an ask to make a donation to the direct giving campaign. All donations are 100% tax-deductible. Ticket sales and sponsorships are underwriting the expense of hosting the event. If you cannot attend the event, click here to make a donation. REMEMBER purchasing a ticket is NOT a donation.
How will the funds raised be used?
The PTSA provides a Faculty Grant to Lincoln Elementary to pay for three additional paraprofessionals in the classrooms. Funds will also be used by the PTSA for Lincoln Community Events and Programs.

I have never been to any Lincoln events and I don’t know many other parents. Is there assigned seating?
A lot of people feel this way, but don’t let this stop you from coming to The BASH. This is a perfect opportunity to meet other parents and celebrate Lincoln Elementary. There will not be assigned seating at the dinner, so grab a seat and meet some new folks.
I can’t attend the event; can I still make a donation?
Yes, please! Click here to make a donation to the direct giving campaign. Thank you!
Are there any volunteer needs?
