Dear Friend in the Community:
The 2014-2015 school year marks the first year of the next century for Hockaday. To launch our 101st year, the Hockaday Parents’ Association is hosting an online auction February 18-24 followed by the Denim & Daisies Benefit at Eddie Deen’s Ranch on Saturday, March 21. Proceeds from the auction and fundraising efforts surrounding the event will support The Ela Hockaday Fund for Faculty Excellence. This fund provides Hockaday with a competitive edge to attract and retain the best and brightest faculty, ensuring Hockaday will continue to educate and inspire girls for years to come.
The auction will be marketed to 13,000 members of the Hockaday community through both print and digital communication. Following our successful Centennial celebrations, our community is more engaged than ever before. Our online auction was wildly successful last year and our donors enjoyed high visibility. We accept in-kind items, gift certificates, unique experiences, and complimentary goods and services and can provide you with a tax-deduction statement. Please consider an expiration date of one year and a value of $100 or more. Our Tax ID number is: 0-75-0800650-3.
Founded in 1913, The Hockaday School is an independent college preparatory day and boarding school for 1,085 girls, Pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. More than 10,000 accomplished and gifted women from all over the world have graduated from Hockaday and gone on to lead brilliant and inspiring lives.
If this is the kind of successful and professional audience you value as your own clientele, please take this opportunity to make a donation to our auction. We will gladly publicize your company, your generosity, and our thanks to you in our print and digital auction publications to thousands of Hockaday parents, alumnae, trustees, faculty, staff and friends.
Please let us know how our committee may follow up with you by returning the enclosed contribution form. Thank you for your support of the Hockaday auction and our Faculty.
