PTA Fundraiser Info
PTA's Mania fundraiser is underway! Every student should have came home with 2 tickets to either sell or buy. Participation is optional, but if every student sells 2 tickets, the PTA will surpass their fundraising goal and will be able to continue to do all of the fun activities for the students throughout the year!
This fundraiser is very unique as your $20, not only gets you song downloads (at the top of every ticket), but you could potentially win up to $400 per week for the 10-week duration. Last year, we had winners that were close to $4,000! Winner earn prizes for top points and for the lowest points. Odds of winning something over the 10 weeks is 1 in 17!
**PLEASE WRITE THE SELLER'S NAME ON THE BACK OF THE TICKET TO GET CREDIT**
TICKET STUBS AND MONEY ARE DUE BACK BY OCTOBER 25TH BECAUSE THAT IS THE FIRST GAME!
-Also, for every two tickets sold and turned in, the seller will be entered into a drawing for an Apple iPad mini, (16GB, Wifi, White/Silver).
