Fall Fund Drive

This year’s Fall Fund Drive HAS BEGUN and will finish on Friday, October 14th.

The Fall Fund Drive is going on now! This is one of our largest fundraisers of the year, sponsored by Friends of Main Street (FOMS.) We do this fundraiser so that our kids to not have to sell items door-to-door. This event is combined with the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk/ Capitola Auto Mall Dealer Group’s Drive for Schools annual drawing. Tickets can be purchased for $5 each or 6 for $25. All of the money from the fundraiser goes directly to the school. FOMS uses this money for the various enrichment programs at school, such as: art, music, classroom support, library programs and after school programs. The grand prize winner will win a brand new Toyota Prius or Subaru Outback valued at over $30,000 or $25,000 in cash!! Additional drawings include several $1,000 cash prizes and over 100 other fun prizes! Feel free to sell tickets to your friends and family members that are out of the area. The winner need not be present to win. Tickets must be turned in by Friday,10/14/16. The drawing will be held on Sunday,10/23/16 at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and you will receive free parking for that day with each paid ticket! Thank you in advance for supporting FOMS and contributing to the enrichment of your child’s education! Any questions, please contact Alicia Potes or Britney Kroeker at fallfunddrive@gmail.com. Please consider volunteering after school to sell tickets at our Fall Fund Drive table from 2:45-3:15pm.  Please email us at fallfunddrive@gmail.com.
We are especially looking for help on Tuesdays. Thank you!
