Dear Friends:

On Saturday, November 4, 2017, parents, friends and staff of P.S. 9 — Teunis G. Bergen Elementary School at 80 Underhill Avenue — in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn will come together for the school’s annual SILENT AUCTION and we need your support!

This highly anticipated event is our school’s largest fundraiser and its success rests on contributions from generous donors like you.  Severe ongoing education budget cuts make funding for basic enrichment programs at NYC public schools like P.S. 9 virtually non-existent.  Proceeds from this event help raise the critical funds that our school needs to maintain arts and academic enrichment programs going for the 2017-2018 academic year.

These very programs — such as Studio in A School, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Noel Pointer Foundation, Omnilearn, Marquis Studios, Dancing Classrooms, and more — have helped P.S. 9 create an excelled and well-rounded learning environment as well as a desirable neighborhood school.

We would like to keep our commitment to upholding a strong educational experience at P.S. 9, but we need your support in our fundraising efforts.

We invite you to support P.S. 9: by donating a gift item or experience for auction, or by donating supplies for use at the event. Your contribution will directly fund these valuable educational experiences. Plus, all donation items will be prominently displayed at our event and recognized by name in our auction catalogue and listed on our website.

Along with raising much needed funds for our school, this event also brings together the entire school community – we have 800+ students at PS 9 – and these families live in your neighborhood, shop in your stores and support our community. Your donation will contribute to our fundraiser’s success while also exposing your business to the PS 9 community.

Provided is a donation form, which can also serve as your donation receipt. Please mail donations to P.S. 9, Attn: Silent Auction, 80 Underhill Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11238. If you have any questions, please email us at or call one of the numbers below.

On behalf of the families and staff at PS 9, we thank you in advance for your generous support and consideration.
