Red Ribbon Week
October 29 – Nov 2
We earned $15,367!
The Jog-a-thon was lots of fun! Thank you to everyone who came out and volunteered as well as those who came out to support the kids! It was a beautiful day and the kids ran their hearts out!
It sounds as if there was lots of confusion about the amount that was kept by the Fundeazy group – the non-profit group we partnered with for the online donations. It was NOT 25%. If you received a piece of swag for your donation, the swag cost $8 and included all of the fees. If you donated online with no swag, there was a 10% fee.
The Fundeazy team also was our wholesaler for the branded rewards for the kids – Highland Park branded yo-yo’s and Highland Park branded headsets. To be clear – the PTA pays over $3000 for items every year to support the Jog-a-thon. We were able to save almost $1500 this year by using the Fundeazy team for reward items.
We appreciate everyone’s support and look forward to a great year!
