FUNDRAISERS



Candy Fundraiser - One of the fundraisers is a candy bar fundraiser (one box per family) during the season. We understand economic times are difficult and have also learned that many families simply purchase the candy bars themselves. So parents are being offered a “buyout” opportunity at sign-up time ONLY. To opt out of selling candy bars, an additional $30.00 (per family) would be required at sign-up. Again, this "buyout" opportunity is ONLY available at the time you sign up your child(ren).

Basket Raffel (Chinese Auction) - The second fundraiser will be our Second Annual Basket Raffel on Sunday, May 21 with shop and drop Saturday, May 20.  ALL teams will be asked to donate a basket.  We ask everyone to help by asking busineess for donations.  Also, volunteers are needed on both days to help with food and tickets stands.
