Dream Basket Fundraiser

basket

Continuing a Bowmore tradition, Bowmore classrooms are once again participating in the Dream Basket Fundraiser by collecting items to assemble in a basket. This year we’re trying something a little different. We are collecting donations and will divide them into the traditional Dream Baskets and into smaller Fun Boxes. We’re also trying out a few new themes. Baskets and boxes will be raffled off at the Junior Concert on June 3 and at the Bowmore Carnival on June 12. Funds raised will go to the new Kindergarten yard.

Each classroom has been assigned a theme and children are invited to contribute items by theme! Items can be big or small, but should be new. Alternatively if you wish to send cash, we can purchase the items for the baskets/boxes. Collection runs from May 13, 2015 to May 29, 2015.
