Family Fun Day Basket Raffle - January 2018

    The Charlotte Sidway Elementary School Parent Teacher Association is currently organizing the annual Family Fun Day Basket Raffle for Saturday, February 3rd. This event is the primary fundraiser for the educational programming, supplies, and activities used to enhance the educational experiences of the children at our school. Sidway provides education to over 400 of Grand Island's kindergarten and 1st grade students. Parental and community involvement has been an integral part of sustaining the success that it has achieved for over 70 years.
    As an important member of the Western New York community, we are requesting your assistance in making this year's fundraiser a success and supporting the education of our children by donating an item to this year's basket raffle. We need items we can offer as prizes for our raffle such as themed baskets, products, and certificates for service (baskets can be any size, products of any amount, even loose single item products are welcome, and service of any kind that can be redeemed within the year).
    If you are not a business that has a product or service that can be given away, consider sponsoring a basket. You choose any amount you would like to donate and our PTA will put together a basket for you in your name. Your generous donation will be publicly acknowledged. Advertising materials such as business cards, brochures, menus, or any other printed material are welcome and can be displayed with your donation. Donors are publicly and gratefully acknowledged in our quarterly newsletter (which reaches the parents and teachers to all our 400+ students), and online on our website: sidwayPTA.weebly.com.
    Donations need to be ready by January 29th in order to organize and prepare for the event. If it is mailable, you can send them to the school (2451 Baseline Rd), to the attention of the Basket Raffle Committee. If you are able to bring it in, you can drop it off at any time in the front office. If you need someone to pick up your donation or answer any questions you have regarding the event, email missymomissy@gmail.com.
