We invite you to support our upcoming Walk-a-thon
next Friday, September 27th beginning at 9:30 am outside the
Prep's cafeteria. (We would advise a 9:00 am arrival for all walkers.
The walk is through Cunningham Park and takes about an hour.) Consider
the following options:
1. Make a designated donation (sponsorship) to support a particular student's fundraising efforts by going to
http://steps4prep.org/. (Each student is committed to raising $100 or more.)
2. Make a general donation that we will apply IN YOUR NAME (as a
sponsor) toward the fundraising efforts of a student (or students) with
financial need. You can do this by going to
http://alumni.sfponline.org/donationsand then scrolling to "The 2013 Walk-a-thon Alumni Fund." ANY amount you can contribute will be greatly appreciated.
3. Consider joining us after the walk-a-thon for a special
senior class bar-b-cue where members of our senior class will
"network" with you regarding alumni events, college experience, the
job-market, etc. (We would ask that you arrive in
the school auditorium at 11:00 am
for brief introductions and then proceed outside with everyone for the
bar-b-cue which we expect will go until about 1:00 pm.) If
you plan to be with us for this senior bar-b-cue then please let us
know by calling 718.423.8810 ext. 268.
In addition, don't forget that a donation of $100 or more entitles YOU
to participate in the walk-a-thon with over 3,000 students, faculty and
staff members, parents, alumni and friends that day. (Just report to the
registration table located outside the back
of the cafeteria at 9:00 am.)
Once again, the goal for the walk-a-thon is to raise at least $250,000
or more (we raised over $525,000 in the first two events) which will be
used for the Prep's ongoing capital improvement and modernization
efforts, with the focus now on the construction
of a new science and music complex that we hope to "break ground" for next June.
So we hope you will help us reach and surpass our walk-a-thon goal again
this year. If you have any questions, thenjust reply to this e-mail or
call the Prep's Office of Development at 718.423.8810 ext. 268.
