On Wednesday, April 30, 2014, The Birch Wathen Lenox School will host its Annual Spring Gala at the Pierre Hotel. The evening will feature dinner, dancing, and both live and silent auctions. The Gala Committee is busy creating new and exciting auction opportunities for BWL’s premier fundraising event.

Supporting the Gala through your attendance, contributions, teacher sponsorships, auction donations and the purchase of auction items directly impacts the School. Gala contributions enable BWL to continue to provide excellence in education, supporting our state of the art technology, advanced science programs, the arts, athletics, and a wide range of exciting academic programs. The School remains dedicated to its commitment to science, enhancing the curriculum in all grades, and brings fascinating speakers to assemblies through our Women in Science Education (WISE) program. Several Middle and Upper School students have undertaken independent university-based research projects. We have introduced Singapore Math in grades K, 1, 2 and 3. This is a dynamic new approach to math and the reason why Singapore consistently ranks number one in math worldwide. Complementing our Science Initiative, Singapore Math is an example of a program that Early Gala Supporters can truly facilitate.

There are many ways to participate in this year’s Gala, including becoming an event underwriter, purchasing individual tickets and table packages, and supporting teacher sponsorships. Please consider your resources to solicit contributions. Unique experiences generate revenue and excitement to the auction. Popular auction items include live TV show tapings and walk-ons, meet and greets with celebrities, fashion shows and shopping in showrooms. Vacation packages, theater, sports and concert tickets as well as restaurant gift certificates have proven to be both exciting and profitable.  A solicitation letter and donor form is enclosed.

 Please feel free to contact us with any questions or for any additional information. Direct all e-mail inquiries to gala@gbwl.org and phone inquiries to (212) 861-0404. We look forward to your early response and your participation in making this year’s Annual Spring Gala an outstanding success!

Very truly yours,

Spring Gala Co-Chairs
