Jay Rowe Smooth Jazz Concert
Now in its 12th year, this concert (the brainchild of local and world-renown jazz artist Jay Rowe) has been a wonderful fundraising event for the Milford Public Schools Music Department.
Every year, the concert incorporates a few add-on fundraising projects and that’s where your help is needed. This year, Jay and his team have put together the following two projects.
Silent Auction: Each year, a Raffle Basket auction is held. Local groups prepare and donate a gift basket for the silent auction. It is suggested the baskets have an estimated value of $50-$100. You are welcome to use your imagination! Gift cards – tickets – apparel from your school – anything you think would be desirable by attendees at the concert. Please contact Mia DiStasi at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (203) 430-9675 for more information.
Ad Booklet: If preparing a basket is not possible for your group, perhaps you will consider taking out an ad for the Program Booklet.
Recycling Rumble Update
The Foran Library is gaining on Our Lady of Mercy Academy in our recycling rumble! The current score is: Foran 43, Mercy 44!! Please also keep sending in those used toner and ink cartridges, old cell phones, broken laptops and GPS devices and now also old/broken headphones and MP3 devices by April 30th. The winner earns a huge bonus of Barnes & Noble gift certificates! Please spread the word to your friends and family who work in offices and help us win. Please have your student drop the items off in the Media Center or the Main Office. I'm also happy to pick up items at nearby offices. Please email me, Janice Pellegrino, School Librarian at email@example.com. We have earned over $1,000 in books and equipment over the past several years with this fundraiser and helped the environment at the same time. Thanks you for your continuing support!
