Springtime is in the Air… Tricky Tray, May 8th
The Tricky Tray is the PTA’s biggest fundraiser of the year! Parents, teachers & friends come to win 200 prize baskets, a 50/50 and a Grand Finale Raffle Prize. Part of last year’s profits went to extending the blacktop and those great basketball hoops. They also pay for assemblies, teacher grants & subsidize field trips. It is a fun night and a great way to support Brookside!!!
Tickets will go on sale at the end of March. E-mail coming.
Buy single seat tickets or purchase a table of 10 (you must have the names of all 10 people to reserve a whole table – the cost is $15 per person or $150 to reserve the whole table). Many people start assembling their tables before the sale, so the list of names is already set and it easy to collect the money. Don’t worry if you don’t have a full table. We can combine smaller groups.
We reach out to potential donors via mail, e-mail, phone and in-person visits. If you have a favorite business that you frequent or own a business yourself, please consider asking for or making a donation. Many families donate their own baskets and also donate money towards Grade Baskets/Prizes. (Donate a prize valued at $50 or more and receive 1 free sheet of blue tickets!) Think outside the box! * You can volunteer to set up or help the night of the event. If you’re interested, please email Jessica Handsman One of the greatest prizes last year was a “Tea for 10″ in someone’s home. Some of our best prizes come from Mr. Klimko, the teachers, and the PTA.
How to Volunteer:

* Contribute to your child’s grade basket. If you didn’t receive an envelope, simply put your donation in an envelope marked with child’s grade and place in the PTA box in the front office. Send in as much as you like to help purchase it… every bit helps!
