YES Parties with Purpose

Parties with Purpose are a collection of kid, family and adult parties hosted by RVSD families or supporters for the benefit of YES! They build community while raising money at the same time. 100% of ticket sales go to support YES.

PWP Works
How this Works

 

Our goal is to have as many and varied Parties with Purpose as possible! We like to schedule parties far in advance, but welcome parties planned throughout the year, adding them to the calendar whenever hosts are inspired. 

 

Ticket sales for your party will be managed through the YES ticket reservation system. You set the ticket price and size of the event. You may also manage invitations and advertising yourself or utilize YES to help promote the party through its regular district-wide communications.YES will provide you with regular updates as to ticket sales and send you a final guest list just prior to your event. Should your event sell out, YES can also create a waitlist. 

Host Policies

Thank you so much for hosting a party! Money raised from Parties with Purpose are a meaningful part of the annual fundraising goal for YES.  Hosts are responsible for all expenses related to their event; no expenses will be reimbursed.  Costs associated with your Party with Purpose are considered a contribution by you to YES and are separate and apart from the YES Family Giving Campaign.  (If you have not already done so, please first consider making the requested contribution to the YES Family & Community Giving Campaign.) If you would like, YES can give you a gift-in-kind letter for tax purposes upon submission of receipts for the expenses incurred for your party.

 

Hosts assume responsibility for honoring the date and event advertised. If you find you are unable to host the party, you are responsible for finding a replacement host(s) for your party.

A Party with Purpose can be almost anything! The sky’s the limit in terms of possibilities.  Your party can be small and intimate, or huge and rowdy.  From a civilized dinner party for 8 adults, to a family movie night on the school campus, all parties build community, raise money and increase awareness of YES and the programs it supports. Thank you for your generosity in supporting our kids and their arts education.
