Cootes After Dark 2018

Cootes Paradise Elementary Home and School Association is excited to announce our first ever Silent Auction fundraiser: Cootes After Dark 2018.


This volunteer event is being organized by the parents of Cootes Paradise to support and expand the amazing on-going enrichment programs within the school, such as additional arts and science programming and field trips. Cootes Paradise is a vibrant and diverse school community, with 650 students, from Kindergarten to Grade 5. The school is unique in Hamilton as it offers classes in English, Mandarin and French.


The Cootes After Dark Silent Auction will be an incredible night out, full of prizes, yummy food and drink and an awesome silent auction to benefit our school community. Our event is expected to draw from the diverse Cootes Paradise parent community, from the Westdale and Ainslie Wood neighbourhoods.


The Cootes After Dark Silent Auction is set to kick off April 6th 2018 at 7pm. We are asking the community, businesses and friends to support the event by donating auction items (gift certificates, products, services) and/or becoming a food and/or drink sponsor. Participating businesses will be featured in our Silent Auction Catalogue and on our event website.


The Home and School Association of Cootes Paradise Elementary would like to thank you for your help.. We look forward to seeing you at Cootes After Dark; it most surely will be a night to remember.
