The winter is just flying by, and we are making the most out of it by planning a line-up of great SchoolBOX fundraisers to keep us all occupied until spring!

Each ticket is $20 per person and includes one raffle ticket to win some fabulous prizes and gift baskets. Arrive by 8:00pm and the festivities will officially kick off at 8:30pm.

Next we have THE GREAT TRIVIA CHALLENGE on Saturday, March 3 at The Glen, 6081 Hazeldean Rd, Stittsville. All proceeds will go to SchoolBOX in support of the construction of a kindergarten class at the KILACA school in El Viego, Nicaragua in memory of Father Rick Marples. Tickets are $10 and available at the St. Paul’s Anglican Church office or via phone numbers posted below.  You can register your team or let us assign you to a team.

Join us in Carleton Place at the Smith & Barrel Pub on April 11th for a sign-making workshop in support of SchoolBOX. You will learn how to make a beautiful rustic sign for your home, and to help us ‘make education possible’ in Nicaragua with SchoolBOX! This workshop is hosted by Out of the Woods Design. The workshop starts at 7pm. You can reserve a table for dinner before the event, or order food and drinks as you work. Cost: $60 and includes a $20 charitable tax receipt from SchoolBOX.
