Brookside’s big Tricky Tray fundraiser will be held Friday April 23th
at 6:30 pm at the Veteran’s Center in Kenilworth.
We have many terrific prizes already donated but are in need of more
so if you have anything you would like to donate individually or with a
couple of other families, or you work for a company that can donate a
product, service, or tickets to an event they have seasons passes to
please let us know. The success of our fundraiser really depends on
all of you. Last year we raised approximately $15,000 for educational
enhancements for our school.
As in the past, we are asking each of you to donate an item for your
child’s class basket. Each class has been assigned a theme and
you can either select an item on your own and send it to school with
your child, go in on a larger item with a classmate, or if you prefer, we
can do the shopping for you and you can just send in a monetary
donation in an envelope marked PTA Tricky Tray. We would like to
start collecting the items in February with a deadline of March 1.
Also, if you have an item on hand, maybe a duplicate of something
you already have that fits a basket theme other than that of your class
or a gift certificate that you don’t plan to use feel free to “re-gift” and
send that in as well.
Please find your child’s class and donate an appropriate item.
