fundraising ideas for schools, churches, and youth sports teams
ABC Fundraising®

The Boosterthon Fun Run is THIS Friday! It is one of the highlights of the year for the kids. They get so much satisfaction out of completing all those laps and you didn’t have to buy anything – your kids get TONS of physical activity and character building all week. So far we have raised almost $13,000 and are well on our way to reaching our $25,000 goal. Please remember to use Facebook and social media to get our fundraising message out to as many people as possible.  Register your children at funrun.com. They get a prize just for registering!
Boosterthon is Creekside Elementary’s top fund raiser of the year.  Each year, the funds raised support events that enrich our Creekside community and this year we hope to put some of those funds into playground enhancements such as picnic tables, a water fountain, benches and new Kindergarten playground toys. This year’s theme is Big World Recess where the kids learn about other kids from around the world and it is right in line with what we hope to do with the monies raised.  Keep those pledges coming… our students are having a blast! Thank you for supporting this effort!

Volunteer opportunities:

We only have ONE more Duke football game this year! And we only need one more slot filled. The next game is Sat 11/14 against Ptt. Kickoff is still TBA.  If you can help out, please use the link below: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d49a4a72faa8-duke4. This shift is the earlier shift so you will come in early to help the manager and then be cut first after half-time. Let’s end the season well!
***NOTE…This year we are raffling off 3 x $100 gift cards at the end of football season for all the people that have volunteered to work games. Your name will be entered in each time you work a game. ****
Duke Basketball season has started! The first few games are scrimmages and tournaments. Please we need your help supporting this program. If you can work a game,  please go to the basketball sign up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d49a4a72faa8-duke5  Remember, students 14+ are also able to work!
