Evans elementary ups the fundraising ante

Chilliwack school Evans elementary isn't giving up on its dream of a new playground. The school has several fundraisers ongoing.

Evans elementary is continuing its drive for a new playground.

The school has several upcoming and ongoing fundraisers.

On Friday, March 28, the Evans Playground Committee is hosting a parent night fundraiser at Dukes Country Pub at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10, which includes a roast beef buffet and drink. A silent auction and 50/50 draw will also be included.

Tickets can be purchased through the school office.

On Saturday, June 14, the school is hosting a Ford Drive 4UR School Event from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Test drive a new car and raise money for the playground. For every test drive, Ford Motor Company donates $20 to the school to a maximum of $6,000.

There’s no cost, no commitment, no sales people on site.

Ongoing fundraisers include Mabel’s Labels where 20 per cent of every order goes to Evans elementary. Their custom labels include sticky labels for clothing, personalized stickers for tweens, school labels, iron-on labels, and more.

Any company who donates $1,000 will get a banner displayed along the school fence, and once the project is completed, the company will be recognized with commemorative plaque on the playground.

For more information, contact the school at 604-858-3057 or the playground committee through its Facebook page: Evans Universal Playground Project.
