To help kick off our spaghetti dinner fundraiser, we are asking for your help with a few things:

  1. Sponsors/Business Ads – Dinner place mats will be given to each person who attends. We are selling business ads to put on the perimeter of the place mats. 300 place mats will be handed out. Business card size (3.5”x 2”) ads are $100. Half business card size (1.75”x 2”) ads are $50. A few suggestions – restaurants (% or $ off bill), oil change coupons, car wash coupons, realtor ads, window tint discounts, family fun entertainment discounts, service industry ads, etc.
  2. Class Baskets - We are asking each class to donate items for their class gift basket to be auctioned off as part of the silent auction, during dinner. The class basket that sells for the most will win a class party (ice cream or lunch). Only 1 class can WIN, so be creative and fill your basket. Elementary please turn your items in to your teacher, MS/HS please turn your items in to the office and we will assemble and wrap them.

Basket theme by class is as follows:

Kinder – Movie Madness                             1st Grade – Garden Delights

2nd Grade – BBQ Master                             3rd Grade – Spa-Tacular

4th Grade – Family Game Night                 5th Grade – Taste of Italy

6th Grade – Picture This                              7th Grade – Wide World of Sports

8th Grade – Fun, Fun, Fun                            9th Grade – At the Car Wash

10th Grade – Pet – A – Palooza                   11th Grade – Restaurants Galore

12th Grade – Coffee Lover

  1. Silent Auction Donations – In addition, we would like to auction other big ticket items. Can you help the school by finding business’s who would like to donate items such as getaways, hotel stays, rounds of golf, big screen television, autographed memorabilia, experiences, memberships, photo sessions, hair certificates, etc.
