The Polar Express to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital raises $925.00 in only 2 hours!

 What a great night and for a great cause! We printed 150 tickets and sold out of them – so my guess is we had almost 175 people in attendance. I want to thank everyone who helped me to make our Polar Express event a huge success. With ticket, raffle and cookie sales we raised $925.00 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 2 hours!

Special thank you to Mrs. Matthews the principle at highlands school for all her help, Gayla Bartlett the president of DEEP(Danvers Educational Enrichment Partnership) she helped us to get the highlands school location and worked the ticket table with me all night and also the lady in red, Mrs. Claus – thank you for greeting all the children as they came in.

I want to thank the following vendors for their help and because of their generosity 100% of the proceeds can go to benefit the charity – Brittany at Daily Harvest Cafe in Danvers and Modash Restaurant in Wilmington for each donating hot chocolate for 100 people, Greg at Eagle One Printing for donating 500 flyers, Sifu Rita’s Kitchen for making 600 gingerbread pizzelles, Mrs. Tran for knitting the ninja turtle masks for our raffle, and Mrs. Cindy Berry for making the Ninja Turtle tree skirt for our raffle.

I would also like to thank our staff Instructor Donovan, Mr. Smith, Mr. Donovan, Miss. Lynn, Miss. Berry for helping to set up the event, Pedro the janitor who went above and beyond to help me during the event, everyone who purchased a ticket, a raffle ticket or gingerbread cookies. We all worked together to make something great happen.

Thank you all again for all your help.
