Parents – Do Your Thing & Sponsor Spring Fling!

Spring Fling is the primary annual fundraiser benefiting Piedmont’s three public elementary schools. All of the funds raised through Spring Fling support key programs at the elementary schools, including science, music, art, libraries, counseling and technology. Parent sponsorships are crucial to the success of the Spring Fling campaign. All Piedmont parents are invited to become Spring Fling sponsors by contributing $500 or more. Parent sponsorships include many benefits, including an invitation to the Sponsors Cocktail Party at the lovely home of Annie and Marc Perrin. All contributors will be recognized on the Spring Fling website and at the event. In addition to sponsoring, parents are invited to donate an item for the live or silent auction at the event. The deadline for sponsorships and donations is March 20, 2015, and all sponsorships and donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law (tax ID #94-2960998). If you have any questions, please visit piedmontspringfling.org, email us at helpingpiedmontschools@gmail.com or call us at (510) 653-1816.

Grandparent Party

We are still looking for grandparent addresses for our Grandparent Party on Sunday, March 22nd.  Please take a moment to submit your parents’ name, mailing address and the name of your elementary school child to helpingpiedmontschools@gmail.com. Last year the Grandparent Party raised almost $18,000 for our children’s schools. Even if your parents live in Singapore, Rome or Los Angeles, they will receive a nice snail mail invitation. If they can’t attend the party, the invitation makes online donations a snap. Even small donations matter!
