Pat Bonner Retirement Party

Thank you to everyone who celebrated with us on May 11!
We wish Ms. Bonner the best in retirement!

Please join us to celebrate Kinder HSPVA’s beloved Vocal Department Chair, Pat Bonner. After 45 years with us and more than 50 years in HISD, Ms. Bonner is excited to announce her retirement! Before she goes, she is inviting everyone to her final concerts as a full-time faculty member: the 2019 Spring Pop Concerts, fittingly titled, “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things.” Walk down memory lane as the current group of Young Performers sings selections from some of Ms. Bonner’s favorite pop concerts of the last five decades!

The Bonner Fund

Ms. Bonner is one of the most generous and forward-thinking people we have ever met. True to form, she is asking all of her guests to help her “leave the school better than she found it” by making a contribution to the Patricia Bonner Fund, either by buying a ticket to one of the concerts or making a contribution online. The Bonner Fund will provide funds for the Kinder HSPVA music departments as well as financial aid for students to participate in summer programs, private lessons, national conferences, and other special educational experiences, which has always been one of Ms. Bonner’s personal giving priorities.

  • Tickets begin at $25. All proceeds from May 14 will be designated for the Patricia Bonner Fund.
  • Donors at the $100 ticket level and above will be invited to a VIP reception with Ms. Bonner from 4:15-5:45pm.
