Summer Fun Basket Raffle @ Rowe and YES!
April 26 - May 28
Instead of simply canceling the Ice Cream Social, the PTO is planning to bring some fun to our K-4 students by holding a simplified version of our annual gift basket raffle! This year, the Ice Cream Social is not a fundraiser, but a fun opportunity to provide some excitement for the students, and we have made it easier for busy parents and staff to participate. All baskets will share a common “Summer Fun” theme that will appeal to a wide variety of students and every Yarmouth student, K-4, remote and in-person, will have one free entry in the raffle, so all will have an equal chance to win one of our amazing gift baskets!
We need your help to make this raffle extra special! Rather than ask for donations of physical items to fill the baskets as we normally would, we are asking for only monetary donations this year to keep things simple for parents and staff. We hope to make 2-3 of our traditional, large, themed baskets per grade level depending on funds donated.
From Monday, April 26th through Tuesday, May 11th, you can donate at: https://givebutter.com/Kfg8Fy. You can also make your check out to Yarmouth PTO. Write ”basket raffle” in the memo, and send your check to school in your child’s folder or mail to: Yarmouth K-8 PTO, P.O. Box 262, Yarmouth, ME 04096.
To increase student excitement and anticipation, gift baskets will be on display at YES and Rowe Schools during the week of May 24th – 28th, and winners will be drawn on May 28th. PLEASE NOTE, THERE WILL BE NO RAFFLE TICKETS SOLD THIS YEAR! All winners will be notified, and we will arrange pick-up or local delivery of baskets during the week of June 1st – 4th. Please email Jessica at email@example.com with any questions you might have.
