Here is how the parties work:
Adult Party
-Volunteers offer to host an a party. Families often choose to host parties together.
-Together with the PTO, the hosts determine a ticket price which helps to cover some of the expenses and provides a donation to the PTO. Hosts choose how many tickets will be available for their party. Usually $25 ticket price and $10 per ticket can be reimbursed to host OR...
-Some extra amazing hosts volunteer to donate the whole party so all the proceeds go to the PTO!
-Adults sign up for the party on the auction website or at the auction on January 21 and pay a "ticket price".
-Past parties include moms & margaritas, dad's night, family bbq, dinner parties, craft or art party, teaching your talent, etc.
