Help Needed with Raffle Baskets

The Peru Education Foundation will be hosting our 5th Annual Trivia Night on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at Celebrations 150. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the event will start at 7:00 p.m. This event will likely sell out, so be sure to register soon! The cost is $100 per table with ten people maximum per team. Each team needs a theme, so start thinking and planning! Registration information is available here and you can also follow the 5th Annual Trivia Night Facebook event page for event updates and details. Proceeds from this fundraiser event will directly benefit our students through teacher grants funded by the Peru Education Foundation.

We have a big evening ahead of us, and we are asking for your help. Each grade level has been assigned a theme, and we are asking families who are able to donate items to contribute to the themed basket created by their child’s grade. We would also gratefully accept monetary donations, which would be used to purchase additional items for baskets and/or wrap and ribbon to create the baskets.

We will begin accepting donations immediately, and will end our collection on Wednesday, February 28. Donations may be sent to your child’s classroom. Grade level theses follow and the items in parenthesis are just a few suggestions of items that follow the theme. Here is a printable list of the items. Please feel free to be creative! We appreciate your help!

Pre- K: “Princesses and Superheroes” (tiaras, wands, superhero items, dress-up costumes, etc.)

Also, please contact either Superintendent Mark Cross or Foundation Chairperson Jen Scheri if you are interested in having your business sponsor a table or a trivia round. Hundreds of people will be in attendance, so it's not only a great cause, but also an advertising opportunity. 50-50 tickets are also available in advance and you do not need to be present to win!

This event raises thousands of dollars to enhance and enrich the educational opportunities of our students. Please share this with your friends or others who might be interested. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there!
