The Templeton Middle School (TMS) Home & School parent organization announces the first- ever TMS Bulldog Benefit March 22 to support student learning. The two-hour silent auction event will feature items and experiences aimed at attracting families.
“We are scheduling this short and sweet event during a school dance so parents can join their kids at TMS, but do two very different activities,” explained Home & School President Carrie Perock.
Mexican-themed refreshments and free admission are two ways planners hope to entice parents to stop by and place a bid. The list of auction items also is impressive.
“We are thrilled to be offering a Donald Driver signed football for auction, as well as several great package experiences for families,” said Perock. “One lucky family will go home with a $500 bath or kitchen makeover.”
The organization’s fall fundraiser which normally raises enough funds to support a year’s worth of field trips and experiences fell significantly short this year. Home & School board members and school staff decided to get creative in finding a way to infuse the organization with desperately needed funds.
“We were hoping to avoid conducting another fundraiser and we think families will appreciate getting a great deal for their donation,” said Perock.
The event takes place from 7 – 9 p.m March 22. at Templeton Middle School, N59W22490 Silver Spring Drive, Sussex. Parents and family of students in the Hamilton School District are encouraged to attend.
