PS8 Gala & Auction

Ante up for PS8! 

Take a chance and join us at Roulette on Friday, May 12th for an evening of casino games, dancing, food, and fun at PS8’s biggest fundraising event of the year! This is an opportunity for parents and staff to come together and celebrate our school, and raise $100,000+ (fingers crossed!) for PS8 that will:

  • Reduce class sizes by up to 30% of the DOE maximum
  • Provide $1 million per year in incremental classroom, enrichment, and community programming for our students (over $1,700 per student)
  • Continue to provide access to Kids Cre8 afterschool clubs at a reasonable cost, and offer scholarships to all those who need it

And in case that’s not incentive enough to join us for the biggest party of the year, our Bond-worthy Auction (details coming soon) and Raffle items are amazing!

Make sure to stop by our Self Portrait Project Photo Booth and take a photo (or 8) to remember the night with fellow PS 8 friends and family!

So don’t forget to book your sitter, brush up on your Blackjack, Roulette, and Craps rules*, and get your (fancy or casual) ‘Casino Chic’ outfit ready. Click here to purchase your ticket(s). We can’t wait to see you there!

*No worries if you aren’t a card shark, we’ll have dealers on hand to teach you how to play the games, or you can just make your way to the bar, dance floor, or snack on our passed apps by Night Kitchen to enjoy your night! 

 Each $150 ticket purchase will include an allotment of “funny money” to play casino games.
