Friday May 11 6–9pm at Putnam's Pub & Cooker

Join us for the PS 20 PTA’s annual Silent Auction & Open Bar for the biggest fundraiser of the year!
Enjoy open bar and passed hors d'oeuvres, compliments of Putnam’s. Last year’s Silent Auction raised over $16,000!! The proceeds raised from the auction will help fund art and gardening programs, classroom supplies, scholarships for school field trips and activities, and more. 

Childcare will be provided at the school by Kaleidoscope. Sign-up when you buy your tickets.

We are also excited to announce that we have expanded our silent auction to offer select items via an online auction—now live at Bid on items, or buy them before the auction at great prices!
