OFB Reader Allison is a kindergarten teacher at the Chesterbrook Academy Elementary School in Chantilly, Va. They are having a community service fundraiser benefiting So Kids Can. Here’s what she sent us and please consider stopping by and helping out if you are able:
Last year I began a community service program at my school called CBA Kids Can and we did a few fund raising events to get the kids involved in the spirit of charitable giving. We chose Mike Green’s So Kids Can (partly because of the name 🙂 and mostly b/c of my hockey obsession :)…
Here are the links to last year’s success if you would like top check them out:
This year we have been fund raising all year and we will hold our biggest event this Friday. PS Game Gear will be setting up a Silent auction (with lots of teams represented… but they do have A LOT of Caps stuff coming!) for us and I have been collecting many caps items throughout the year at different events and have put together a Caps raffle. We are calling it CBA SportsNite.
Here is all the info:
Calling all CAPITALS, NATIONALS, REDSKINS, STEELERS, PENGUINS, RAVENS, YANKEES, RED SOX, COWBOYS, And PGA Fans!
