Manchester Memorial Fun-A-Thon!
Manchester Memorial PTO has chosen to organize our own fundraising event this year, the Fun-A-Thon! The date of our Fun-A-Thon Event is Wednesday February 5th. Last year, MMPTO used an organization called Boosterthon to help us execute a fundraiser to help the PTO sponsor Enrichment Programs, Innovation Mini grants and educational funding for programs school wide. This year the PTO is going to use a different organization called Pledgestar, and we’ll need your help to make this event a SUCCESS!! This new company will collect our pledges and the PTO will do the rest! We anticipate that this event will be so much fun and such a huge success that we will be able to cut back on other fundraising in the future and focus on this one, big event. Our hope is to reach or exceed this year’s goal of $25,000 and have the ability to minimize other fundraising efforts for the remainder of this school year. Annually the PTO funds around $30,000 of initiatives during the school year.
We kicked off the event today, Friday January 24th at the school wide meeting! The PTO and teachers, along with the 5th grade ambassadors, explained how the Fun-A-Thon works, and we got the kids motivated and excited for the upcoming event! Students can get pledges from friends and family members for each lap they complete or they can have folks sponsor them with a flat rate donation. On the day of the event, we will set up a course in the gymnasium with a DJ, balloons, and decorations! The DJ will be spinning tunes for the kids to run, walk, or dance laps around the course! Each day, we will update our fundraising progress in the Memorial Lobby. To build excitement for the big day, each student will receive a t-shirt and will be entered into a raffle when they get pledges!
