Dear Collective Families,

The Collective’s annual fundraiser gala is fast approaching. The gala and auction committees are planning such a fun evening – dancing, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, fabulous auction items – and hope to see you all there. I hear the view from the ambassador’s penthouse alone is worth attending.

If you can’t make it, we hope to see your participation in some other form – donated tickets perhaps, or bidding online at our silent auction. This gala is essential for raising funds for tuition assistance, thus ensuring the Collective’s mission of sustaining an enriching, diverse community for our children, and we need everyone in our community to help us realize this goal.

So – please buy your gala tickets today – or buy tickets to donate – or simply make a donation. Encourage your friends and family to attend as well – ticket prices for friends and alumni are $50 till March 7. (All ticket prices increase to $85 on that date.) You may buy tickets in the office – or ask Lauren to include them on your next invoice. Or you may buy tickets online at – just click the orange “admission ticket” icon on the lefthand side.

And don’t miss out on the incredible auction – start bidding today!! The auction is live online at

Thank you in advance,
