PTA Fundraising: BRAG (Ben Rush Annual Giving)
Ben Rush Annual Giving (BRAG) is Ben Rush PTA’s major fundraising effort for 2017.
This is fundraising simplified: Donate once & participate all year.
The PTA serves to enrich our school programs through classroom support & enrichment activities.
You also brag about things you’re really proud of & we are really proud to be part of our great school!
How much does the PTA need to raise?
Our goal is $50,000, which averages $125 per student.
(We seek 100% participation with any amount and we ask you to give generously.)

In this November Thanksgiving Month we are asking you to give back: Be generous with your comments (“brag”) and money (donate).
There will be a “BRAG Board” at the school lobby where Parents, Students, Teachers & Staff can brag on what they love about Ben Rush, their classes, enrichment activities, teachers/staff and your kids.
Please participate: How LOUD will you BRAG?
In December we will share some highlights through Cheetah Chat for parents and with the kids during the Spirit Assembly.
