The Kaneland Blackberry Creek (KBC) PTO feels very fortunate to have support from our local community for our fundraisers. Fundraising allows us to purchase great items for our students and school, such as playground equipment, library books, Nooks, assemblies, field trips, bike racks and much, much more.
We will hold our inaugural Family Bingo Night and Silent Auction on Feb. 1, 2014. This event, for KBC families, will include free admission and Bingo, “celebrity” callers, a 50/50 raffle, silent auction items, classroom basket auctions, and teacher-donated items and events. It is a guaranteed fun night out for our KBC students, parents, and siblings.
If you or someone you know is interested in supporting this great family event, we are looking for donations of goods or services to use in our silent auction. Sporting goods, event tickets, memorabilia, electronics, services, products or gift certificates are all examples of great silent auction items. Monetary donations to sponsor this event are always welcome, too.
For donation forms and more information, visit the KBC PTO website at kbcpto.org, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All donations are tax exempt and are due by Jan. 3, 2014.
