Silver anniversary…a momentous milestone worthy of celebration… a mark of tradition and time-honored dedication…25 years etching love on hearts of Newbury students and walls of the buildings which educate them…
2013 marks the 25th year of the Annual Newbury PTO Holiday Luncheon and Auction. The years tie together many parents and community members in planning and celebrating this festivity – all with one purpose in mind: to raise funds to supplement the academic experience of Newbury’s students.
Funds raised enable the PTO to support staff through conference meals, staff appreciation events, and wish list grants. In addition, funds promote literacy and academic enrichment through Literacy Lunch, the Young Author’s Conference, COSI and more. Teachers and students benefit from updated classroom technology. Family and community development is encouraged through pre-game tailgate parties, Holiday Shoppe, family fun nights, and the Annual Spring Carnival – a tradition longer standing than the luncheon! These funds have also provided playgrounds and playground equipment.
The day includes …
Chinese auction (three complimentary tickets with luncheon ticket purchase) abundant with the fantastic generosity of Geauga County and Cleveland area businesses and individuals. Plus, all go home a winner with an extra drawing for those “lucky losers” of the Chinese auction!
- What a Girl Wants raffle (**see below for details!)
- Whet-your-appetite appetizers, delicious lunch, sweetly prepared dessert, cash bar (wine/beer)
- Holiday gift for each guest
And a few other sentiments and surprises along the way besides the memories with friends, old and new. No parental or community requirements, you just need be one who enjoys festivity, and YOU ARE INVITED to kick-off the holiday season while encouraging visions of sugar plums in our children.
