Support School Fundraisers
Recently I was part of a Facebook discussion about sharing Ann Arbor school fundraisers such as restaurant nights, ice cream socials, and other events. I love that my daughter’s school holds restaurant nights as fund raisers. We love eating out and we get to help her school (and see friends) at the same time. The annual ice cream social is also one of our favorite events.
Since we eat out a lot, I’d love to know when and where other schools are having restaurant nights. If I’m eating out anyway, I’d love to help out other schools.
Additionally, there have been some great fundraisers from the high schools. They have found a way to connect to the community at large with family-friendly activities like Brick Bash, Parents Night Outs, Halloween Programming, and more.
