Annual Giving Campaign - Week 3

Dear School Community,

We are happy to announce the winner of our third Annual-Giving-Raffle:

Congratulations Saldias/ Zabalaga Family and Braun/Wollgast Family!

Leon may spend one break in the Principal’s room of the Preschool  and have his picture taken with the teacher(s) of his choice.

The Braun/Wollgast family wins a personal “Park & Party” parking spot for all main events at the school until the end of the calendar year (Summer Festival – Back-To-School Night – 5K-Oktoberfest – St. Martin’s Parade – Christmas Market)

Next week, we will raffle off the following fantastic prizes among all Annual Giving donors:

Winning family No.1: Pizza Lunch with the Head of School in her conference room for your child and three friends.

Winning family No. 2.: Park & Party (see above)

We are so close to our goal of 100% participation und $20.000! With $14.019 we have already raised of a third of our monetary goal. Nearly a third of all families (28%) and more than a fifth of all colleagues (22 %) have already participated. If all remaining donors would give $20, we would easily reach our goals. There is only one week left! Please be in and donate here!

We would like to remind you that the first 40 families who donate more than $199 will be invited to a reception by the Ambassador and his wife at their Residence. There are only 5 spots left! Make your donation today!
