Dear friends, and community business leaders,
Welcome to PAWS, West Islip's Education Foundation. This year we are sponsoring our Eight Annual Gala on March 15, 2013. This event will be held at Captain Bill’s in the Bayview House in Bay Shore. The Gala promises to be an exciting evening where we will honor 3 members of the West Islip Community: Scott Craig, an educator with the Physical Education Department and coach of the nationally acclaimed boys lacrosse program, George Smith, who has served the West Islip community for 15 years as a leader, trustee, and past president of the West Islip Board of Education, and Jeanne Koeper, long-time Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent and advocate for the students of West Islip. The events of the night will include dinner, dancing, and a number of raffles with something of interest for all 275 of our guests.
With your support PAWS intends to follow the precedent of other Education Foundations around the country in providing assistance to the district through money and services that it may not otherwise be eligible to receive, such as corporate grants and fundraising dollars. PAWS is a not-for-profit organization completely run by your West Islip neighbors. Through our volunteer efforts, we will be able to use private funding to assist the district in providing a positive learning atmosphere for our students.
Please show your support by placing an ad in our journal. There are 2 attachments to this email should you want to place an ad in our journal as well as information on reserving your tickets for the event..

Thank you in advance for your support. I hope that you will be able to join us in celebrating our community and contributing to the future of West Islip education through this investment in our children.
