PHES Ice Cream Social needs prizes

Staff reports

For the past three years, the Ice Cream Social at Pinon Hills Elementary School has been an end of the school year celebration with food, games and entertainment. It has also been a major source of revenue for the Parent Teacher Organization with a silent auction, Kids Bids for the students and a raffle.

Donations received from past Ice Cream Socials have enabled the schools to purchase computers, books and other types of educational equipment. Some past school improvements purchased with the money raised went towards curtains for the school’s stage and playground equipment.

PHES will hold its fourth annual Ice Cream Social June 1 and are seeking donations for the raffle and silent auctions. Donations of food and beverages would also be appreciated to cut the cost that the school would have to pay. According to Katie Nelson, PTO presidnet, donations are tax deductible.

For more information, call fundraising coordinators Cathy Rahe, 267-9976, or Nancy Hamlett, 267-2400. Donations may be mailed to the school or arrangements can be made for a volunteer pick-up. Receipts will be provided.
