The first fundraisers with goals to send our Turtle Creek Elementary School Destination ImagiNation team to the DI Global Finals are getting under way.
Menchie’s frozen yogurt in Delavan (in the Delavan Crossings plaza in front of Wal-Mart) is holding a fundraiser on May 6. Customers who bring in the flyer (at left) between 5-9 p.m. will have 10% of their purchase donated to the Seven Amigos team’s efforts to head to the Global Finals in Knoxville, Tenn., in late May. It’s not a discount on products, but a portion of the sales made during that time from customers with the flyer will go to the team.
Also, all schools in the district are holding “change wars.”
Each school will have one or more donation jar where any donations made will go directly to the team. Students, staff and parents can help their school win and help the district’s first DI team since 2002 to head to Global Finals to compete with 16,000 other creative and talented students from across the world!
DI coordinators said they’ll need more than $6,000 for lodging, transportation and entry fees for the team for this four-day Global Finals event.
