Donate to the 2013 Palo Verde Auction
Once again, plans are underway to create an evening that is full of fun, friends, and raises important funds for Palo Verde. We hope you mark your calendars for Saturday, March 23rd at Ming’s Restaurant. While a large team of volunteers are gathering donations from businesses near and far, Palo Verde families are also rising to the occasion of making this auction a huge success.
Donate a Party or Event: As a host you can throw a fun party or gathering, connect our community, and raise money for our students – all in one effort! Grab a friend and co-host an event this spring or in August once school starts again. Kid-only and family oriented events as well as events limited to grown-ups are welcome. Past hosts, please tell friends how rewarding and fun it is to host an event and encourage them to step up this year.
Donate an Item or Service: We are on the look-out for donations of services (home cooked meals, dessert-a-month, tech support), event tickets, unique experiences (lunch at a “cool” company or a round of golf at your private club), and destination and travel items. Vacation homes and time shares are especially well received.
If you would like to donate to the auction, we would love to hear from you by Friday, February 8th. Contact Callie Turk (callieturk(at)gmail(dot)com) and Rebecca Thompson (rebeccaherrema(at)hotmail(dot)com) to lock up your event date or provide details of your donation.

The Princess and the Pea Visits Palo Verde
Palo Verde is pleased to participate this year in the Palo Alto Children’s Theatre Outreach Residency Program. For more than 30 years, this program has provided elementary school children with a unique opportunity to experience the world of theater at their school sites.
More than 30 Palo Verde students, grades 3 through 5, are working hard to bring an exciting performance of the Princess and the Pea to our school. The actors and crew members would like to invite you and your family to come and enjoy this highly entertaining version of the Hans Christian Andersen short story. Click here for more details.
We hope to see you there!
