JOIN US FOR A FUN-RAISING PHONE-A-THON (October or early November)
Calling all FUN Lovers! During this two-night communitywide event, volunteers will be calling parents and community members asking for their continued support and assisting with follow-up correspondence. Caller training will be provided to prepare volunteers.
Not much of a talker? We still need you! Help out with behind-the-scenes processing of paperwork and mail. Dinner and drinks will be served. Lots of candy and good company!
INTERESTED IN BECOMING A TABLE CAPTAIN?
Table Captains are a key component to the success of Breakfast of Champions. Table Captains commit to filling a table of 10 (including themselves) to learn more and support excellence in our Mercer Island Schools. Most guests will come because they are personally invited by someone they know. The breakfast is free to Table Captains and their guests, although it is a fundraising event and everyone will be asked to make a contribution. It will be our job to inspire those in attendance to invest in excellence for Mercer Island students and their teachers.
