Did you know funds raised at the Patriots’ Ball in the past helped purchase the field on the west side of the school, the new playground, and many other awesome things your children get to enjoy every day??? This year we are raising money for the new soccer pitch and adding to our amazing maker space – but in order to have a successful event we need items to auction off!

A fellow Hamilton mom told us that she keeps the donation auction forms in her purse so she has them with her at all times. She finds that when she is already buying something from someone it is much easier to ask if they would be willing to donate.

Here are some other ways you can help:

* Gift certificates from your favorite restaurants, retail shops, and service providers. If you’re a regular at any business, it’s a great opportunity for a donation.
* Vacation accommodations near and far. Do you or a close family member have a second home or timeshare to donate for a getaway?
* Unique experiences like brewery tours and one-of-a-kind fine dining

* Specialty items like fine wines and artwork

Own a business or know someone who does? We have some great sponsorship opportunities! Consider being a Patriots’ Ball Sponsor. For more information and the form click HERE.

Last but not least, do have a great idea for a parent party? If you haven’t heard, they are one of the best parts of the Patriots’ Ball – a year’s worth of opportunities for fun and community! In the past, we have had Principal Gray’s Poker Tournament, the Moms’ Margarita Party, and the Summer Pergola Party. We are also looking for a new family to host this year’s chili cook-off. Any new ideas would be welcome. We also love parent and child parties. Contact us at hamiltonfundraise@gmail.com with any ideas or interest in hosting the chili cook-off and we will be happy to help figure out any logistics, or match you with another family if you are looking to round out a package idea.

We cannot tell you enough about how excited we are for this year’s Patriots’ Ball and hope you will all join us! Please reach out to Amanda Hughes if you have any questions, ideas, or suggestions at hamiltonfundraise@gmail.com.
