Friends of Beethoven Auction

Important Fundraiser For Local Elementary School

The organization,Friends of Beethoven is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up solely of parent volunteers. Their primary mission is to raise funds to support students and their educational experience. Their 2017 Silent Auction will raise vital funds needed for every day programs at Beethoven. They depend on this auction to provide support for Teacher Aids in every classroom, Computer and Coding Sessions, Art Instruction, and Physical Education. The organization supports after school homework lab, field trips, a learning garden and pay for many needed basic daily supplies. For the 2016/17 school year, the expected cost to provide these educational opportunities is over $130,000.00.

As a California title one school, over half of the 350 students are from low income families. Without community help, they may not be able to continue to provide all of these services. As their largest fundraising event of the year, the Silent Auction this May will include many local families, business community members and educational professionals.

The Online Silent Auction will be followed by a Gala Dinner that will be attended by over 200 parents and professionals from the local community.

Donating an item, gift, or service will directly benefit the school and its neighborhood children. If you donate something today, your business and gift will be acknowledged in their program and auction bid sheets.

Beethoven Street Elementary School, in Mar Vista, is celebrating the school’s 70th anniversary with an important fundraiser this May and needs support from the community. Anyone looking to help, can do so by visiting the online auction between May 8th – 19th! Beethoven has a challenging goal to raise $40,000 by the end of this school year.
