The Bobcat Soiree and Auction was last Saturday night - THANK YOU to all of you who helped make our 4th annual event a resounding success! Thanks to all of our sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees, our Bonny Slope community strengthened bonds AND surpassed this year's goal, netting approximately $70K for our students!
Whether or not you were able to attend, there are still opportunities to keep connecting with other parents through the ever-popular parties. There were many more offerings this year, several of which still have space remaining. We encourage you to take a leap and participate in these fun events. We guarantee that you will have a great time and meet some new people!

IMPORTANT: MATCHING FUNDS!
If you made an auction purchase, your employer may offer a matching donation to meet yours! If you were at the auction and are affiliated with NIKE, INTEL, or COLUMBIA SPORTSWEAR, we kindly ask that you submit for a matching donation. This will literally DOUBLE YOUR CONTRIBUTION to our students!
