Spring Carnival and Quilt Raffle

Spring Carnival

Our main fundraising event, organized by the PTA, is in early May (rain or shine). The event includes games with prizes for all ages, a cake and wine walk, a “food court” and exciting student performances and live music from Cragmont musicians and a Quilt raffle.

It takes many volunteers to make this event a success. It’s easy to get involved and we are always looking for leaders and team members to coordinate different aspects of the day. The General Coordinator (or Co-Coordinators) oversees the event, ordering the necessary equipment (such as tables) and prizes, the Games Coordinator assigns and oversees classroom parent volunteers for each game, including set-up and clean-up. The Cragmont Crew sets up and makes sure the games are in working order before the event. The Food Coordinator oversees purchasing, set-up, serving and cleanup of the Food Court. Interested in contributing on any level? Please contact the Carnival Coordinator: Carnival@cragmont.org.

Simultaneously, there is a drawing for the Quilt Raffle during the event. (See below)

The Quilt Raffle

At the end of February, a group of crafty parents decide on the annual quilt design and put there plan to action. Sewn by many helping hands, it can be done at home or with the group. The Quilt Raffle Coordinator and team also organizes packets of tickets for each student to sell to win this quilt and raise money for our school as well as counting and refreshing packets each morning for three to four weeks prior to the event. They love to have extra hands during the counting — ten to thirty minutes in the morning every day is helpful. There are additional raffle prizes included in the drawing. The Quilt Raffle Drawing takes place at the end of the Carnival. The winner does not need to be present to win.
