Bulldog Run Fundraiser Form

September 29, 2017

Welcome to the 8th Annual Mathewson BULLDOG RUN!

Why? ~ We want to streamline our fundraising and cut back on the number of times we ask our families for donations, so we hope to hold ONLY THIS MAJOR PTA FUNDRAISER that will raise enough funds to help the PTA hold all our events and activities for the  2017/2018 school year.

Funds raised will be used for:
~ Fine Arts Presentations
~ Field Trip Assistance
~ Room Parent Allowances
~ Teacher Wish lists
~ PTA Events such as Halloween Hoot, Father Daughter Dance, Mother Son Night, Movie nights

During School Hours: Times to be announced
