The PTSA held our biggest fund raising event of the year on Friday, January 27, 2017. It was our annual Bingo Night and Gift Auction, and thanks to the hard work of the team that put it together, all the great support from our community, and the huge number of donations we got from businesses, the evening was a tremendous success.
FUND RAISING RESULTS
The Bingo night and Gift Auction is really made up of four separate fund raisers. The Bingo games, The Gift Auction, The Big Gift Card Raffle, and the 50/50 Raffle. Here's how we did:
Bingo Games - raised $1825.00
Gift Auction - raised $13,311.30
Big Gift Card Raffle - raised $5,383.00
50/50 Raffle at Bingo - raised $1,700.00
TOTAL RAISED AT ALL EVENTS $22,219.30 (Wow!)
Thank you all for making our Bingo Night and Gift Auction a huge success!
Thanks to all of the people and businesses that donated merchandise.
Do you have any idea how many donations you need to create 130 gift baskets? I don't know either, but it's a lot!
Local businesses showed us tremendous generosity, and one way we can thank them for that is to show them some love in return.
SO MANY PEOPLE TO THANK
No way we would have raised all this money without an amazing team of people pulling together to make it happen. Here's a list of our volunteers. I hope I got everyone:
Eldra Radzik - Ran the entire Bingo and Gift Auction, and with her team assembled 130 gift baskets! An incredible feat.
Wendy Abrams - Vice Chair and Gift Donation Coordinator
Donna Capuccino - Ran the Big gift card raffle.
And here's the rest of the team:
