TOTALLY AWESOME AUCTION NEWS!

Travis PTA presents “Back to the Future: An Evening of 80s Icons” on Saturday, February 23, 2019, 6-10pm at Rockefellers Houston. More than just a good excuse to don shoulder pads and tease your hair, the PTA Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year and accounts for 85-90% of our annual budget. Those funds help us pay for things like teacher assistants, Writers in the Schools curriculum, the Garden instructor, science lab supplies, and field trip admission and transportation, to name only a few.

AUCTION TICKETS AND CHILDCARE will be on sale at 10:04pm on Saturday, January 19th through the Handbid app. Tickets are $45 each and include light bites and adult libations. Childcare, provided by Kidventure, is $5 per child for potty-trained kids ages 3+. These items are both available in limited quantities, so be sure to snag your spots early when tickets go on sale. Contact Auction Chair Phil Teague with any questions.

SPONSORSHIPS are also available! Sponsors are a vital part of auction as they help subsidize the cost of the party, so we can put all dollars earned right back into our school. Sponsorship forms will come home soon in Tuesday folders, or you can sponsor online HERE. Contact Sponsorship Captain Rebekah Baker with any questions.

DONATIONS are the bread and butter of auction. Travis PTA is a non-profit organization and your donations are tax-deductible (to the extent allowed by law). So if you would like to donate an item or service, or you know someone who might, contact Donations Captain Jessica Taylor. If you can help collect donations from vendors, let us know that, too!

SIGN UP PARTIES are events and experiences donated to Travis and hosted by families and other community members. Past events include a Bros & Brews pub crawl, a 'Bad Moms' movie night, a crepe-making lesson, and sailing in Seabrook. Have an idea for a party and don't know where to start? Don't have an idea but want to host something? We've got you covered either way - contact PTA Fundraising VP Masha Phillips and we'll get you hooked up!

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND, both Sign Up Parties and a limited number of School Experiences will be offered to our entire Travis family, regardless of auction attendance. Fixed price tickets for these experiences will be available the week before auction in our online store, so you can grab a ticket without having to attend auction in person. This gives everyone a chance to participate in the fun, even if you can't make it to the main event.
