Auction & Gala
Dear Prince of Peace Catholic School families,
We hope you will join us on Saturday, March 30 at the Omni Hotel in Frisco, Texas.
Star Speakeasy (VIP Receception) - 6:15 p.m. | Registration Opens / Event Begins - 7:00 p.m.
Gala Tickets are Live! Mr. Evans included the Gala website in his newsletter last Friday, and I hope you have had an opportunity to review the ticket options. I kindly ask you to prayerfully consider the purpose of the evening - not only do we want to celebrate our fabulous community, but we want to raise money for the heart and soul of our school - our students. This year, funds raised from the gala will allow us to complete the collaborative furniture updates we started last year, continue our security additions and updates, and create opportunities for our students through building and technology enhancements.
Please consider partnering with us by sponsoring a table or by purchasing tickets as a VIP Star Family. When you commit to a level above the Individual Ticket, your generosity has an incredible impact. For example, as a VIP Star Family, you receive 2 tickets to the event and 2 tickets to the "Star Speakeasy" - our exclusive (and fabulous) pre-party at the Omni that you won't want to miss! Additionally, your tax-deductible portion allows POP to purchase 1 table and 1 chair for a classroom as part of our collaborative / flexible seating initiative. Just think, if 90 families decided to be VIP Star Family Sponsors, we could outfit an entire grade with new collaborative furniture.

What does the evening entail? - By purchasing a ticket to the event, you will receive drink tickets, an incredible seated dinner, live music from the Georgia Bridgewater Orchestra Band, access to the Live and Silent Auctions, and more! If you purchase tickets at the VIP Star Family level or higher, you will also receive an invitation to the exclusive "Star Speakeasy". Cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and early check-in are a few of the exciting benefits you will enjoy at our VIP reception prior to the event (plus a few surprises)!
Omni Hotel Stay - Many of you have asked about staying the night at the Omni after the Gala. The Omni has reserved a block of rooms under "Prince of Peace Catholic School" at a special rate. If you would like to make a reservation, please call 1-800-THE-OMNI or use their customized website: OmniFriscoPOP There are a limited number of rooms available in our room block, so please consider booking your room sooner rather than later!
Gala Donations & Partnership Opportunities - The Gala committee is working hard to secure donations to ensure the auction is full of incredible items and experiences. It truly takes a village, and I am asking for your help. Although I was a 5th grade teacher for several years, this is my first year as our Development Director. As such, I am still getting to know our families. Some of you may have access to sporting events, concert tickets, restaurant gift cards, vacation homes, special experiences, etc through your families or companies. Please visit our "wish list" for more ideas. I would love to see how we can partner together and promote your business to the entire Prince of Peace Catholic School community. If you would like to share your ideas over the phone or over coffee, I welcome the opportunity to discuss how your support can add to the success of the gala.
Thank you for your careful consideration. If you would like additional information or have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
