PTA Dinner

Wish Believe Achieve
The Annual Dinner

Presented by the Garden City PTA

Since 1945, the Garden City Parent Teacher Association has been dedicated to serving children and families in our community. To continue the valuable work of the PTA, we will once again host our annual PTA Dinner at The Garden City Hotel on Thursday, March 23rd. The generosity of our parents and local businesses make this evening possible. The proceeds from this event help provide enrichment programs in our schools and promote the health and safety of children and families. 
Our Dinner Committee has planned a wonderful evening for you! Don’t miss out on live music and DJ, extended cocktail hour, cash bar, strolling dinner, mingling with teachers, friends, and family – and chances to win amazing Raffle Baskets, Balloon Pop Prizes, Grand Raffles, and Silent Auction items. During the evening we will present Mr. Greg Bavaro, Dr. Judith Hecker, Ms. Jane Jordan and Mrs. Susan Lee a NYS PTA Honorary Life Member award in recognition of their distinguished service to Garden City’s children and youth. Celebrate with us!
