Dear Alumni Families and Extended Collective Community,

We so want you to join us at our Collective fundraiser gala and auction on March 21. Therefore, we have decided NOT to raise the $50 ticket price for alumni and friends, and the $50 ticket price will stay in effect up through the gala.

But please don’t wait!  You may purchase your tickets online at or you are always welcome to drop a check by the office. (We’d love to see you.)

Don’t forget to start bidding on our silent auction at – and we’ve just added a very exciting raffle opportunity: two tickets to see “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart before he departs. Raffle tickets are $10 each, and you can purchase them at the Collective office or at the gala (another wonderful reason to attend).

Hope to see you on the 21st – and thanks to everyone who has already bought tickets!

Martha and the Fundraising Committee
