Q: What is Shindig? Where and when is it?
A: Shindig is the name PTA uses for our annual adult-only party and silent auction. Each year there is a different theme. This year, our theme is titled “Shindig goes Country”!
Shindig will be held on Friday, October 13, from 6:00-10:00pm at the Ravenous Pig, in the beer garden.
Q: Tell me about tickets: How much and where do I buy them?
A: Tickets will be on sale soon at BaldwinParkPTA.org. Tickets are $60 pre-sale and $65 at the door. Tickets will no longer be available online on October 13, so purchase early!
Q: Is Shindig a fundraiser?
A: Yes, and it’s way more fun than selling frozen cookie dough and magazines door to door! There will be a silent auction, raffle, a wine pull and more. Shindig is PTA’s only fundraiser in the fall. All proceeds help fund our budget so that we can pay for the events and items in our budget. See below for bidding instructions using Handbid for our silent auction.
Q: What do I wear?
A: Dressy-casual—whatever you feel most comfortable in. This year, to match the theme, a country dress code is encouraged.
Q: What if I don’t know anyone?
A: There are lots of chances to meet people at Shindig. You can mingle around and check out the auction items, stop by the Wine Pull and win a bottle to take home, partake in some light appetizers, or cut a rug on the dance floor. One of the best parts of Shindig, whether you are a seasoned parent or a newcomer, is the chance to socialize with new people.
Q: Will there be food and drinks there?
A: YES! The event is catered by Ravenous Pig and includes a variety of on theme light bites and appetizers (included in ticket price). Your admission will also will include two drink tickets (beer, wine cocktails). There will also be a cash bar available all night.
