Help Us Make This Year’s Auction – “The Sweetest Thing” – our Best One Yet!

The YCS Spring Auction is the biggest fundraiser of the year and is also a fantastic party! There is a lot that goes into making it a success, so we NEED YOU!

  • Ticket Sales – CLICK HERE to buy your tickets on-line today.  Also, Kate and Victoria will be selling outside school starting this week! You can also buy tickets in the PTA office, via backpacked form, or online HERE. The party is Saturday, March 24th from 7 – 11 PM, and tickets cost $75.00 per person (adults only please). We accept cash, credit card and checks. 
  • Underwriting: Help us maximize our fundraising through underwriting. CLICK HERE to underwrite online or stop by the PTA office to do it in person.
  • Volunteer.  The Sign Up Genius is coming soon! Please have a good look at it to see how you might be able to volunteer. No matter how much time you have, everything helps
  • Donations: Donations are the #1 way we drive revenue during the auction, and we will still gladly except items. Ideas include: vouchers from your local diner, nail and hair salon discounts, cinema tickets, interesting experiences (NYC or otherwise), camps, fitness packages, etc. You name it, we’ll take it!

100% of the funds raised from the auction will go directly to funding the enrichment programs that benefit all YCS students. Without your generosity, programs such as theater, music, art, chess and dance would exist in a greatly diminished state or not at all. You can find lots more information about our auction HERE and we thank you for your generosity!
