Planning for Two Big Fundraisers

fundraiserHello Lake Youngs Families! As your Vice Presidents, Jill and I would like you all to know our fundraising goals and programs this year. We know time and money are an issue for all of us and it order to respect that we have decided to have only 2 big fundraisers this year – one in the fall and one in the spring.

The fall fundraiser will be cookie dough sales. We will be selling Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough through a great fundraising company called Northwest Fundraising. Last year we made about $5,000 dollars in cookie dough sales. That is awesome! I would love to see us earn double that! The sale will run the last couple weeks of October with delivery right before Thanksgiving. Just in time for holiday baking, cookie exchanges and easy potluck desserts.  Continue reading
