Shhhhh! Don’t let the enemy know where you’ll be on Saturday, March 9th, 2013, dressed to kill and ready to party: Seascape Resort! It’s all about espionage, high speed chases, cut throat auctioneers, glamorous women and dashing gentlemen this year (not to mention raising money for our awesome school!), and the theme is Bond, James Bond. If you’re long overdue for a 007 film fest in your living room, now is the time to snuggle up and watch all of your favorite Bond films. That’s right, you have three long winter months to prep yourself for our biggest annual fundraiser of the year via total immersion in all things 007, but if you’re prone to total hibernation, you can also simply wake up from your winter slumber, hire a sitter, throw on something slinky, and support our school by having an adventurous time dining and dancing the night away with your partners in crime on. We can’t wait to see all of the hi stakes shenanigans that go down, not to mention who will dare to dress the part, so mark your calendars and prepare for a memorable 007 extravaganza!
CHOCOLATE ALERT! It’s not too late to turn in your Winter See’s Candy Fundraiser order. The deadline is this Wednesday, giving you plenty of time to figure out your chocolatey holiday plans. You’ll be glad you did…. chocolate will never let you down! (Unless, of course, you forget to order any.)
Congrats to Taylor Bryant and Gwen Chapman, co-winners of the coveted Popcorn Golden Ticket! Why 2 winners? Because Gwen bought Taylor the lucky bag. They’ll both be going to Yogurtland together this week to spend the $5 gift certificate. A true Thanksgiving story about sharing and friendship. Enjoy your sweet treat, girls!
