WARREN, NJ - On Saturday, June 7, Primrose School will hold a “Spring Fling” fundraiser to support Wagner Farm Arboretum’s shed project from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the arboretum, 197 Mountain Ave. Friday, May 23 is the last day to register for early bird pricing.
The Wagner Farm shed collapsed over the winter due to heavy snow. Many of the materials used for Wagner Farm's Brite Nites fundraiser were stored in the shed. Much of the pumpkin art, decorations and haunted house supplies were crushed and lost.
According to a statement from the school, “We wanted to help out with the Wagner Farm Arboretum’s loss to support their mission of helping to feed the needy and the poor and educating both children and adults on the environment."
The annual Spring Fling is Primrose School’s largest fundraiser. One hundred percent of the funds raised are donated to charity, 50 percent to a local charitable organization and 50 percent to the Primrose Children’s Foundation, which supports organizations that focus on the needs of young children and their families, like Reach Out and Read and Save the Children.
This year, Primrose has partnered with Rossi Health Center for its Spring Fling fundraiser. Activities will include educational and informative health and wellness related workshops, a family fitness challenge, a performance by Preschool Rock (2013 Parents’ Choice Winner), kids sports stations, mini fitness classes, developmental screening, a kung fu and tai chi demo, dancing, face painting, food, gift bags, raffles, giveaways and games.
The rain date is Sunday, June 8.
