FUN RUN FUNDRAISER DONATIONS
The Fun Run committee is looking for donations for our top prizes. If you (or your spouse) work for a company that would be willing to help with a prize, please let Clara Wichmann know as soon as possible (i.e., if a parent works for Jack in the Box, would Jack in the Box be willing to donate a gift card or something for the Fun Run? Or if you work for Microsoft, would Microsoft be willing to donate something?). This is the time of year where lots of gifts are being given, sometimes with gifts that you may or may not want. If you are gifted something that you may not need but you think would be a great donation for our Fun Run Fundraiser, please contact Clara at cdog99@hotmail.com or text 858-336-0807. Thanks so much!
