Our public school has a fundraising event in November and yesterday a reader told me about another one the following day at his school. Tell me about your school's fundraiser.
Once I get a list of school fundraisers together, I will run it here on OnMilwaukee.com so folks can contribute to silent auctions, buy tickets to public fundraisers and make donations.
And, for this list, I'm looking for school with events and auctions and the like. To make a list of every school selling candy, magazines or frozen pizzas would be to simply make a list of every school, since schools that don't sell those third-party products are pretty rare these days.
Thank you for putting this list together!
Hartford University School for Urban Explorations is a K-8 Milwaukee Public School located on the UWM campus. There will be a silent auction on November 20th to raise funds for arts programming at the school. This event is at RedLine, a new art gallery/studio space downtown. This will be a fun event, with video projections, live music, collaborative arts experiences, a silent auction, and a great appetizer spread. A donation of $25 is requested. Tickets can be purchased at the school or at RedLine's door on the night of the event. For information or to donate an item for the auction, contact the auction co-chairperson at firstname.lastname@example.org
St. Sebastians in Washington Heights has had a scrap metal drive for several years. Around Earth Day, Action Recycling on State Street brings an empty semi truck, and they help us sort the stuff people bring to the playground -- old appliances, bikes, the usual aluminum cans, and other metal items -- into bins. We also have an account with them so people can bring their metal to the Action Recycling site and donate the proceeds to the school. Has brought in thousands of dollars over the years.
One more: Sub-a-thon: Jimmy John's SUB-A-THON
Come hungry and support the Foundation! Eat at Jimmy John's NEW LOCATION, RIVER POINT SHOPS, 8793 N. PORT WASHINGTON ROAD on Saturday, September 25th from 10am - 5pm. Support your Foundation at the 5th annual sub-a-thon in this back-to-school fundraiser. The Foundation will receive 20% of all sales during this great event. Remember, eat at the Jimmy John's on the sourhtwest corner of Port Washington & Brown Deer Roads (NOT at the Glendale Market).
Not sure how we're supposed to tell him -- but here is one: Glendale schools Parkway and Glen Hills are having a run/walk on October 9 called "Run for the Hills/Walk in the Park". Here's a link: http://www.glendale.k12.wi.us/Domains/glendalehills/Documents/Foundation/Run-Walk2010registraionform.pdf
