From the Seth Boyden PTA:
One of the most fun nights of the year is almost here! The Annual Seth Boyden Elementary School Benefit Auction is fast approaching, and the Seth Boyden PTA invites everyone 21+ in the Maplewood and South Orange communities and beyond to come enjoy this year’s event: Casino Royale! The party will be on February 9th at 7pm at The Woodland. It’ll be a swanky affair full of food, cocktails, dancing, silent auction bidding, and – new this year, for the Casino Royale theme – blackjack tables!
Auction offerings will include show tickets, a vacation getaway to the Catskills, a session with Julia Maloof Verderosa Photographer, a bundle of home goods curated by Maplewood Mercantile, two weeks at Camp Half-Blood, a private tour of the Metropolitan Museum, a plethora of baskets, and much, much more! The event will also feature a raffle for one of the most popular prizes every year, a family membership to the Maplewood Community Pool.
The Silent Auction is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Seth Boyden PTA, supporting assemblies, field trips, the fifth-grade musical, a Black History Month Gallery, an International Pot Luck dinner, improvements to Seth Boyden’s Outdoor Learning Center, and many other programs, events, and amenities. The sponsors for the auction are Nice Kern Design and Vanessa Pollock Properties Group of Keller Williams.
You can bet “Casino Royale” will be a night to remember! Tickets can be purchase online at https://sbcasinoroyale.eventbrite.com for $40, or at the door for $45. Those who can’t attend the auction can still enter the raffle for the Maplewood pool membership ($10 for one ticket, $15 for two) by emailing [email protected], subject line “pool raffle,” with your name and the number of raffle tickets you’d like.
