Ferson Fights with Jimmy - St. Baldrick's Event
To date, we’ve raised $2,610!
The St. Charles Challenge, a community-wide, St. Baldrick's Foundation event is fast approaching, and our team, Ferson Fights with Jimmy is getting ready. The event is scheduled for next Friday, March 10th, beginning at 5:00 PM, at Haines Middle School.
Several Ferson Creek Foxes are “braving the shave” to show their support!
and Cub Master Thomas Marcotte
Way to go!
If you aren’t ready to “brave the shave” but still want to support the team, you can do so next week from Monday, March 6th to Friday, March 10th.
Between 8:00 AM and 8:40 AM each day, we will be offering green hair extensions at $10/each, in the front entryway. If your child is interested, please send him/her with a completed permission slip (see attached) along with $10 cash or a check made out to St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
If you have experience with hair extensions, our team welcomes your support before school. Please contact Stephanie Turner, Early Childhood Teacher at Stephanie.Turner@d303.org if you are willing and available to help.
We will also be taking cash donations (coins and bills) by grade level. Let’s see which grade level can raise the most money!
Finally, we will be selling green, St. Baldrick’s bracelets for $1/each.
Questions can be directed to Stephanie Turner, at Stephanie.Turner@d303.org.
Keep your support coming!
