Want to pick up a fun new item while supporting a local school? The annual spring auction for PS 39 (417 6th Avenue) is coming up, and you’ll have a chance to bid on items online starting next week, as well as during silent and live auctions at their fundraising gala next month.
Sponsored by the Parent Association, the spring auction is a major fundraising event for the school. Money raised is used to fund activities such as teacher training, arts programs, intervention and enrichment programs, and after-school activities, as well as for classroom materials that aren’t covered by the school budget.
The online auction runs from March 16-30, and the fundraising gala will be held on Saturday, April 5 at Congregation Beth Elohim — tickets are on sale now.
