Weekly Parent Newsletter February 9, 2020
Message from the VP of IA
Greetings Parents!
I am here to share more with you about Bal Dominique! As you know it is a significant fundraising initiative for Trinity and we would love to see more Trinity parents get involved.
So, in case you were wondering…hmm, how I could participate and join in on all the fun?
1.      Attend this fabulous event on April 18!
2.      Join the Bal Dominique Auction Committee!
We have a few parents already on board—thank you! No experience necessary—just a fun way to help with the Silent Auction of this event. Please contact me this week if you are interested at  [email protected]  or 708.453.9374.
3.      Donate or recommend auction items!
Here are some ideas for successful auction items. If you have access to or have a contact for any of these items, please consider Trinity and let me know!
  • Tickets (Sports, Theater, Concerts, etc.)  
  • Vacation/Travel Opportunities (Summer Homes, Airline/hotel miles, Hotel packages)
  • Experiences (Hosted Dinner Parties/Wine Tastings, Intern/Shadow opportunities)
  • Gift Certificates (Restaurants, Spa, Department/Local Stores)
  • Other ideas?!?
4.      Take out an Ad!
Support our honorees this year or promote your business/employer. If your organization has a marketing or charitable budget, they can support Trinity with an ad and be featured in our Bal Dominique ad book.
This very special event is truly a night for everyone to celebrate Trinity. If you can find a way to get involved, you will certainly meet some great people and make wonderful memories!
Have a great week everyone!
Many thanks,
Vice President of Institutional Advancement
