Save the Date for our 7th Annual Springabaloo fundraiser! The event will take place during the evening of Saturday, March 28th at the Glen Manor House.

Glen Manor House, Portsmouth RI

What is the Springabaloo?

The Springabaloo is historically our largest fundraiser of the year. It’s an adult only event, and a great way to meet and socialize with other parents. The first part of the night is a silent auction – aside from standard goods and services, there are some unique items up for bid that are always popular.

For example:

  • Each classroom has begun work on a classroom project, with every child contributing – this could be something like a canvas, bird house, or yard games 
  • Most of the teachers and student services donate time for a special experience – an after school art class with 3 of your students’ friends, or “secretary of the day” with Miss Emily

The evening ends with a live auction, with everyone participating in games for a prize. Popular live auction items from the past include Principal for a day, Security officer for a day, a years’ worth of coffee, vacation rentals, etc. We already have some new items lined up for this year and expect a lot of friendly competition!

What are we raising funds for?

This year, we will be focusing our fundraising to help support field trips for the whole school and creation of our Outdoor Learning Center!

What is the cost?

We will be maintaining our ticket price of $30 per person to cover the cost of the event.  Appetizers, beer, and wine are all included in the ticket price.

What can I do to help?

As always, we will be looking for volunteers! We will need help the night of for set up, break down, cashier, etc. A sign up form will be sent out prior to the event if you are able to assist.

In addition, we need auction items! If you or someone you know owns a business, this is a great way to get exposure in the local community. Auction items in the past have included services, gift cards, subscriptions – anything goes! Examples of popular items from past years include:

• Gift cards for local businesses

• Certificates for a hair cut

• Framed artwork

• Tickets to upcoming events

We will also be hosting a wine raffle during the evening – while wine can’t be brought to the school, there will be multiple drop off locations should you wish to donate a bottle – details to follow.

Please follow us on facebook at “Hathaway Elementary School Parent-Teacher Association,” as we will be posting pictures there of auction items. If you are able to donate any items or services, or have any questions, reach out to us at: Elsacfisher@gmail.com  or hathaway02871@gmail.com
