{ APRIL 29, 2011 } T O N I G H T, AT E AT S , IT’S A TIME TO C E L E B R AT E T O G E T H E R .

Dear Friends, There are signs of spring in Philadelphia: trees budding, Taney baseball practices, and EATS in the TPS gym. I am delighted to welcome you to another EATS event and hope you enjoy this festive night in support of TPS! This is an exciting time in The Philadelphia School story. We are about to begin an evolution of our physical space that will include the renovation of our existing facility and the development of our new property, “SoLo.” These projects will further enhance our teaching and learning spaces, including new performance space, growing gardens, early elementary classrooms, offices, and a learning resource library filled with books and digital resources. This is a most exciting moment for everyone connected with TPS as we improve our facility to catch up with our impressive program! Tonight, at EATS, it’s a time to celebrate together. This is a vibrant learning community—and EATS is the one opportunity for all of the TPS adults to come together in support of each other and the school. It’s a chance to visit with old and new friends, a chance to raise a toast to teachers who have made a real difference in children’s lives, and a chance to bid— often and with enthusiasm—for the great items that are available. All of the funds raised tonight support the school and the work that’s done here—so bid and bid higher, help us raise record-level funds for the school! Thank you for joining us tonight—thanks to all of the volunteers, especially the Co-chairs Sue Green-Liddy, Susan Regli and Erica Salvi. And a giant thanks to those in both the Advancement and Finances offices for taking care of every detail to make tonight a success. Enjoy! Warmly, Amy P. Vorenberg Head of School

H E L L O A N D W E L C O M E T O E AT S 2 0 1 1 ! ! !

What a magical night for the The Philadelphia School community, when we come together to celebrate our school, our friendships, and our support for everything that makes the daily lives of our children so vibrant in all their classroom spaces. EATS is a key part of our fundraising activities each year, and we never fail to be overwhelmed by the incredible donations of time, energy, talent, and creative auction items that make the evening come to life. This year the cadre of EATS volunteers has done a phenomenal job gathering donations from local businesses who support our school mission so generously, as well as coming up with creative ways for individuals to join in the donations. We would particularly like to thank Jill Jokelson for coordinating volunteers this year, and Marcia Henisz for coordinating the spectacular array of parties for the “Party At My Place” portion of the silent auction. Check out the parties that TPS families will be hosting, from which all proceeds will go to TPS. Volunteers will also be circulating to give you the opportunity to take home some bottles of wine from the “Which Wine Is Mine” donations, which contain interesting wines from around the world (with a few “collectors” items hidden in the mix). In addition to the tremendous gifts from staff and faculty, our extended regional community is supporting our event tonight, with donations from Governor Ed Rendell and Mayor Michael Nutter, and some of the most exciting live auction travel and dining opportunities we have ever had! Browse the tables…sample from the myriad food and beverage tables and thank the generous restaurants and companies who provide the delicious fare…bask in the beauty of a gym turned into a wonderland by our talented design committee…and thank the brave volunteers who will be doing the cleanup. But most of all, take a moment to recognize how this event is a manifestation of the vibrant community that is TPS, and enjoy yourself. Cheers—now go place your bids!! EATS Co-chairs, Susan Green-Liddy, Susan Harkness Regli, and Erica Salvi

S I L E N T A UC T I O N P R O C E D U R E S

❋ Start bidding early; it’s more fun that way! ❋ The silent auction will close about 15 minutes AFTER the close of the live auction (approximate time: 9:30 p.m.). No bids may be entered after the closing of the tables is announced. The highest valid bid is the winning bid. ❋ We recommend making your last bid a HIGH one to discourage someone from bidding against you in the last second of the bidding. ❋ Each item in the silent auction has a bid sheet. To make a bid, write your bidder number where indicated together with the amount of your bid. Your bidder number is on your name tag as well as on the live auction description form you received at registration. ❋ Use only the bidder number assigned to you. Do not write your name. (If you are attending EATS with your significant other, you might want to use only one of your bidder numbers to facilitate a quick check out, especially if you do not share the same last name.) ❋ You must bid at least the initial minimum bid noted on the bid sheet. ❋ A bid must exceed the preceding bid by at least the amount noted on the bid sheet as minimum raise. If it does not, the bid is invalid and will be voided. ❋ The highest valid bid at the closing of the auction is the winner and will be circled on the bid sheet by the Auction Committee. ❋ A five-minute warning will be given before the close of tables. ❋ The “check out/cashier” table, located in Primary-C, will open at approximately 9:45 p.m. Please enter PU-C through door closest to the schoolyard. ❋ To find out which silent auction item(s) you have won, please tell the cashier your bidder number (not the number of the item). ❋ Payment may be by cash, check, VISA, or MASTERCARD.

{12}

PLEASE NOTE ❋ All sales are final; items are sold “as is.” ❋ Please read specifications and limitations carefully. Unless otherwise stated, restaurant certificates do not include liquor, gratuities, or sales tax. If a certificate has a specific value, it will be stated. ❋ Exact dates and other details regarding stays in private homes, catered meals, etc. must be arranged directly with the donor. It is the buyer’s responsibility to contact the donor. Contact information will be provided. ❋ By purchase, the buyer waives claims for liability against TPS, and the donor is not responsible for personal injuries or property damage that may result from the use of property or services sold. ❋ Successful bidders are purchasers of items of value; bids are not tax deductible except for the amount by which the purchase price exceeds the item’s fair market value (in most cases, the FMV has been provided by the donor to TPS on the bid sheet). ❋ The fair market value of a service provided by a nonprofessional is limited to the value of any purchases made by the individual while providing the service, for example, the cost of the food served as part of a “home-made Italian dinner.” ❋ All merchandise of all kinds must be collected no later than 2 weeks after April 29, 2011. Goods or services not collected will become property of The Philadelphia School after May 31, 2011. ❋ All gift certificates and services are valid until April 29, 2012 unless otherwise stated. Certificates are not redeemable for cash.
