Las Vegas, N.M. – The New Mexico Highlands Foundation is sponsoring a pajama gala fundraiser March 16 where you don’t need to leave your house to raise money for student success.
“You’re invited to put on your comfiest jammies, stay on your couch, and raise money for an important cause — our Highlands students,” said Juli Salman, Alumni Office director. “The pajama gala is a unique idea and a very cost-effective fundraiser because the overhead is low, with a large portion of the proceeds benefiting students.”
The participants will receive a “gala-in-a-box” when they purchase a $100 ticket through the Highlands Foundation.

“Your gala box will contain everything you’ll need for a relaxing night at home, including a pizza delivery gift card, a gift card to purchase wine or other beverages, and fun party favors like a pair of fuzzy purple slipper socks,” Salman said.
Salman joked that the pajama gala will be the best party you never attended.
“Your absence is requested at this chance to party in your PJs,” Salman said.
Salman said for people participating in the pajama gala in the Las Vegas and Albuquerque area, JC’s New York Pizza Department will provide the pizza.
“JC’s Pizza is an extremely supportive partner with Highlands. They’re involvement in this fundraiser is making it possible to maximize the money raised for student scholarships and other student activities,” Salman said.
Tickets for the Highlands pajama gala are $100 each and are available through the Foundation Office at 505-454-3248 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org. They are also available online at www.nmhufoundation.org/pjgala. Please RSVP by March 6.
