This year’s event will be a huge success thanks to the many local sponsors who have supported the cause.  Major donors include: Argent Plumbing, Creative Wallcoverings, Gabriele Fitness, McGrath’s Hardware, The Murray Hill Inn, Strawberry Fields, and Skin Deep Spa.  Additionally, dozens of local businesses donated items and gift certificates for the raffle baskets.

“In a time when our schools need financial support, the surrounding business community really stepped up.  They gave generously and helped us create an exciting event.  I am glad that we can continue to support them in return by shopping locally”, said co-chair Allison Smith.

The Salt Brook PTA is a not-for-profit charity, which supports and funds educational activities and capital projects within their public school.  Past Spring Fundraiser proceeds have been utilized to build a new playground; update technology through the purchase of SmartBoards; and fund teacher-requested grants for classroom materials and supplies.  The goals of the PTA are only realized because of donations from the community and the PTA’s many member-volunteers. 

The “Big Basket Raffle” will be fun for all.  Please come out and support Salt Brook School.  For more information, contact Allison Smith w.smith5@verizon.net
