A Night Out for Kirkbride Elementary

By Kirkbride Home & School Association (other events)

Friday, May 20 2016 6:00 PM 9:00 PM EDT

Join the Friends of Kirkbride Elementary for our first ever fundraising event! Supporters, neighbors, teachers, and parents will gather for a Night Out of food, cocktails, and live and silent auction. All proceeds will go to Kirkbride’s efforts to purchase curriculum-required materials, fund extra-curricular and after-school programs, implement school beautification projects, and support volunteer programs within the school.  

The event will be held at Industrious Offices, a modern glass-filled space in Center City with sweeping views of South Philadelphia that will be adorned with student artwork from the school’s recent Junior Flower Show. The evening will also include a performance from the Kirkbride Orchestra and guests will bid on great auction items including event tickets, exclusive dining opportunities, artwork and more. Tickets are on sale for $30 in advance online and $40 at the door.
