Art Show and Wine Reception

Dear Friend of the Panther Ram Foundation:

The Panther Ram Education Foundation was founded on the belief that the arts, music, athletics and advanced academics are critical subjects to well-balanced student development in the Central Dauphin School District. The focus of the Foundation is to raise awareness within our community and fund-raise on behalf of the students.

On Saturday, February 28, 2015, the Panther Ram Foundation Art Show/Wine Reception will be hosted by the Whitco Home Furnishings and Fromm Appliances and Lighting, two businesses dedicated to the community. This event will showcase a range of talents from students within the Central Dauphin School District to include artwork from various schools (elementary through high school) and pottery vases for sale. The goal of the reception is to not only showcase our students, but to raise awareness and funds for programs within the district and for our Power Pack program. The CDSD Power Pack program provides nutritional food to our neediest elementary students over weekends. We have seen successes such as engaged students on Monday morning and parents at parent-teacher conferences and involved in school activities. School has become a friendlier place for those students and parents involved in the Power Pack program.

How can you help? Local vendors such as you … are the foundation to community growth and development, as a committee we are asking local vendors for their support in donating items towards the silent auction or in the form of a cash sponsorship. All proceeds will be divided between the Panther Ram Foundation and the Power Pack program. Your support will help reach more students and programs within our district enhancing their overall school experience.

With your help we can meet these challenges that face our schools and community every day. Thank you for your support.

PLEASE see the attached files for additional information.

Good day, Panther Ram Supporters!

Dear Friend of Education,  

It has been very gratifying for me to see the growth and success of the Panther Ram Foundation during this past year. Our mission is to enhance the overall educational experience of our students by raising, managing, and disbursing funds to support academics, the arts, and athletics. We also support other needs of the schools where funding is not available. 

During the past year, with the help from our community we have been able to provide:  

- Two scholarships each for Central Dauphin High School, Central Dauphin East High School, and
   Dauphin County Technical School. 

- Assisted in purchasing band and cheerleading uniforms. 

- Furnish and install Smart Boards. 

- Encourage and support elementary students in showcasing their art work. 

- Power Pack Program 


With your help we shall be able to continue our mission. Visit the Panther Ram Foundation Website to learn more about this 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. 


Please take a moment today to join me in making a thoughtful tax deductible gift  donation to the foundation's annual appeal. Make your contribution on-line by selecting "donate" or use the enclosed form to mail your check prior to December 31, 2013.
