Spring Bash – LOTS OF INFO -
Tickets are on sale NOW and are going quickly. Tickets are $75/single or $150/couple. We have a wonderful night planned for our annual spring fundraiser. Get your tickets here! We have limited tickets left, so don’t miss out!
This year the event will be April 7th from 5:30-11:00pm at The Sanctuary, right here in Castle Pines. Each ticket includes hor d’doeurves, dinner and dessert. Each ticket also includes a drink ticket to help you “ease” into the night. We do have a limited number of tickets due to space and tickets are on a first-come, first-serve basis. As always, there is also a spot to purchase a ticket for a teacher to the event. This will allow our great teachers to be able to attend the event as well.
What are we raising money for this year?
Many people have asked and we are thrilled to announce this year our main focus for money raised from this event will be focused on updating and upgrading the STEM and science programs. We will be supporting updated Wedo 2.0 kits for the STEM classroom. These are updated, wireless kits to help with building and creating in the STEM lab. We will be sending a video of the students using the Wedo 2.0 kits in the next few weeks. In addition, we will be adding new carts containing laptops to update the science curriculum, which will provide each grade their own cart to improve science curriculum. Lastly, we will support our annual reoccurring funds to the school, teacher appreciation lunches and the athletics department.
We will be needing volunteers for wine wall collection and night of the event volunteers. If you intend to volunteer and stay for the event, please be reminded you will need to purchase a ticket for the event. There will be no complimentary tickets this year due to space limitations. If you want to volunteer and do not intend to stay for the event, you do not need a ticket.
Please watch for further emails coming in the next few days for additional information.
We look forward to seeing everyone April 7th. If you have any questions, please contact Andrea Moon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the most popular attractions at our spring fundraisers is the Wine Wall. At Spring Bash you’ll be able to purchase a “diamond pull” that’ll get you a fabulous bottle of wine off the wall. We need your donations to help us fill the wall. We will be collecting wine bottles and cash donations during select morning and afternoon carpools beginning this Wednesday, February 21st.
Wine wall collections will occur on the following dates and times:
February 21st – Morning Carpool
February 26th – Morning Carpool
March 2nd – Afternoon Carpool
March 9th – Afternoon Carpool
March 16th – Afternoon Carpool
We could use some really great volunteers to help with collections. Click here to sign up!
If you will be bringing wine, please remember that each bottle should be valued of at least $20.
As we have done in prior years, we have worked out a deal at Castle Pine North Wine and Spirits, as well as at 80108. Castle Pine North Wine and Spirits will give a 10% discount on your total wine purchase in February and March. 80108 will give a 10% discount on bottles of wine not previously discounted during February and March. Both will hold the purchases at the store for us to pick up if you don’t want to transport the wine to the carpool collections. Please go to the Spring Bash Webpage for the fliers!
