The RL and CE class of 2013 will work with the Food Bank of WNY to benefit the BackPack Program at PS 74 Hamlin Park School.
Sponsorship: (Chair: Carrie Gardner)
Our goal is to raise the $7,200 that it takes to provide Hamlin Park with the program for the 2014-15 school year. Anything more than that amount will be applied to the next year and beyond*! (*All funds raised via sponsorship or events will be held in an account managed by the Food Bank of WNY, that is specifically designated for Hamlin Park School)
A sponsorship packet has been created (documents below) to share with potential corporate sponsors. Please take a moment to review the information and identify any of your personal or professional contacts who might be interested in contributing.
Please contact Carrie if you know of an individual or company that you would like to approach. Carrie will keep track of who has been asked (so we aren't doubling up), and can also provide assistance if an in-person meeting/presentation should be scheduled.
Events: (Chair: Chrisi Pearl)
Chrisi and the Events Committee will plan the first happy hour event for this summer (target date - early August). A separate email will be sent about the event, and any related needs. The "Buffalo Tours Buffalo" resources may be used if we are able to book an event at one of the city's hidden gems!
Susie Pieri has implemented a "Be Kind" initiative at the Hyatt for employees - all proceeds will go to Hamlin School! More ideas like this are welcome!
