Help sponsor Lake Groves walkathon

Event is schools major fundraiser of the year


Lake Grove Elementary School PTA is organizing a Cougar Day Walkathon, to be held March 9, 2013, at the school. This will be the organization’s major fundraiser of the year and proceeds will provide enrichment programs to Lake Grove students, including drama club, science fair, art literacy, field trips and more.

The event will bring Lake Grove families together for a day of fun, exercise and camaraderie. It will feature a walking course around the school, food, entertainment and fun.

PTA volunteers are seeking sponsors for the event from parents and the business community. Since the organization is a nonprofit, donations are tax deductible. Several levels of sponsorship are available from $200 to $800.

“Our sponsorship levels provide great publicity and advertising to our supporters using walkathon T-shirts, the PTA website and the Lake Grove Elementary student directory,” said PTA co-presidents Kjersten Darcy and Whitney Woolf. “The Lake Grove PTA, without financial support from the community, could not offer so many enriching programs to Lake Grove students. We thank you for your consideration.”
