First Flight Elementary School PTO to host annual Trick or Treat Night fundraiser
Published 8:39 pm Thursday, October 24, 2019
Trick or Treat Night, to be held at First Flight Elementary School on Saturday, October 26, is a family friendly fundraising event hosted by the PTO that includes a plethora of Halloween activities. Guests can trick or treat through the themed hallways and library, visit the gym for games or take a chance in the cake walk. With face painting, a fortune teller and a digital photo booth by Five Fish Photography, kids of all ages are sure to have a frightfully good time.
Back by popular demand is the Haunted House (in a new location) and the newest event, the glow dance party in the Disco Dungeon. The night also includes a raffle full of prizes like a Samsung 4K UHD Smart TV and Xbox, an Apple iPad with accessories, a $500 cash prize, a movie night package and a day at the spa from Hairoics. Take your chances in the silent auction packed with merchandise and gift certificates donated by local businesses. Village Pizza will also be serving pizza for hungry trick-or-treaters.
Funds raised from this event will be used to supplement several of the school’s existing programs and help create new learning opportunities for students. Last year, First Flight Elementary School PTO, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was able to purchase special request items for the classrooms including flex seating, wobble chairs and OZO bots for the technology lab, as well as iPad accessories, headphones, atlases and a new climbing rope for the gym. The PTO was also able to support and expand the school’s cultural arts program, offset yearbook costs for each student, provide incentives and prizes for the positive behavior program, pay for field day activities, provide items for teacher and staff appreciation, continue to keep the science lab stocked with supplies and much more.
All are invited to attend Trick-or-Treat Night on Saturday, October 26 from 4-7:30 pm at First Flight Elementary School. Admission is $2 plus a non-perishable donation for the Beach Food Pantry. Costumes are encouraged.
The event is made possible in part by Super Wings, VanderMyde Real Estate Group, Spencer Yachts, Henry’s Restaurant, Red Sky Travel Insurance, Outer Banks Resort Rentals, TowneBank, Creecy Pool & Spa, Outer Banks Hospital, SAGA, Carolina Designs, Beach Painting, Soundfeet Shoes, Dirty Dick’s Crab House, Mobile Communications of America, Bonzer Shack, Outstanding Pools and Spa, Southern Bank and Village Realty.
