Spring Forward Benefit: Ravenswood goes Retro

Dank Haus Marunde Grand Ballroom (5th floor)
4740 N. Western Avenue, Chicago
This year, the Friends of Ravenswood School’s Spring Forward Benefit will harken back to a time of musical variety shows, experimental food (Spam, anyone?), Tupperware parties and revved-up muscle cars. Go retro with us and enjoy live entertainment, heavy hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, an assortment of live and silent auction items and the first look at RavensBooks, created by each classroom. This adults-only event is also a great opportunity for social face-time with teachers and administrators as well as other parents.
The Spring Forward Benefit is the largest grossing fundraiser put on by FORS (Friends of Ravenswood School) each year. Last year’s event raised a record $85,000 in one night! Join in the fun and make a lasting impact on our community and your child’s education.

While we have several levels of sponsorship available with varying degrees of incentives, we are currently seeking smaller donations (ideally $250, but every little bit helps!). This would be tax-deductible and would make a significant difference in the amount of money we can bring in from Spring Forward this year. Do you think you, your business or the company you work for would be able to help us in this small way?
If so, please bring the Monetary Donation Letter and 501(c)(3) Tax Letter to your HR department. Completed forms can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, sent by mail to the address on the letter, or brought to the school main office in an envelope marked “FORS/Spring Forward.”
With our communications and social media outlets reaching over 850 people on a frequent basis, we are able to offer a variety of beneficial sponsorship packages. A company choosing to support our school in this way will be able to further their business while leveraging their goodwill in the community.
