Baskets Bonanza is a long running Spring fundraiser for the PTA. Formerly known as Baskets & Bingo, this fun event used to combine a raffle of classroom supplied baskets, a silent auction of teacher experiences, bingo games and food. With the pandemic forcing everything virtual in 2020-2021, the event successfully pivoted to an online basket raffle format. We will once again run the event virtually.
The core of Baskets Bonanza are the baskets supplied by each classroom. Each basket is based on a theme assigned to the classroom. Families supply the content of the baskets to the classroom parent who is in charge of gathering, cataloging and taking a picture of the basket for the auction website. We also are seeking donations from local businesses and restaurants for additional prizes.
The raffle is run via an online platform that specializes in basket raffles of this type. Simply purchase a number of chances (priced at $1/chance) then select the baskets you want to take a chance on. Instead of one night to make your selections, you will have over a week to peruse the baskets.
Winners are drawn at random by the online software. The winners will be announced after the online platform certifies the results.
More information will be available on purchasing tickets as we get closer to the event opening.
