The Findley Carnival is Friday May 29th and this year we will be putting on a “Hawaiian” themed event as a fun way to end the school year. Our goal has always been to host a fun event that the kids & families will enjoy & remember but this year we are also trying to raise $10K to $15K for new Audio & Video equipment for the Findley gymnasium. The current equipment is old and a lot of it doesn’t work. For PE, pep rallies, & performances that require music or loud speakers they end up using a separate amplifier and an iPod. PTO was great to set aside funds for technology this year but that was only enough for the needed iPads we got.
The way we are planning to raise funds is with a new Silent Auction in addition to our traditional Raffle. We have over $7K in Silent Auction & Raffle prizes including a Movie Party with Mrs. Skidmore, 2 nights at a Mt. Hood cabin, Portland Timbers & Thorns ticket packages, Free Pizza for a Year from Bethany Public House, 2 nights at Great Wolf Lodge, an Apple Watch, iPad Mini, Google Nexus 7 tablet, and more.
Winners of the Silent Auction do not need to be present to win, though it would be much preferred that transactions are settled on Carnival night. The Silent auction will close at 7:15pm. Winning bidders who are not present will need to respond by 12pm on Saturday or the runner-up bid will be honored.
Raffle winners do not need to be present to win as long as legible contact information is written on their ticket. Drawing times will be posted at the door as well as the individual raffle boxes
Come dressed in your favorite Hawaiian shirt or grass skirt and join us for a fun, exciting, and memorable evening.
