The countdown to Gingerbread Fair 2014 is on! Friday December 12th 3:30 – 7:30pm.
For those of you who are new to the school, the Gingerbread Fair is the school’s biggest
fundraiser of the year and one heck of a party. The money raised allows us to enrich our
students’ experience at OOOPS with extra programming and new equipment.
There will be a hot dinner and salad bar upstairs, a bake table overflowing with goodies,
the gym will be transformed into a market place, where parents and local vendors will
sell their wares, as well as activities and games for the kids.
Each class has been asked to run an event or take charge of part of the fair’s festivities.
Please help out in any way you can. With your help, the Gingerbread Fair will be a
magical evening and a smashing success!
How You Can Help
Bake We have some pretty impressive bake sales throughout the year, but nothing
compares to the Gingerbread Fair’s bake table. Please consider trotting out your best
treats (nut free) for the table. Contact Hiral Amin-Sharma firstname.lastname@example.org
Cook A hot meal is served upstairs and we rely on parents to help us with the spread.
We’re looking for cooks to donate large batches of things like, noodles and tomato
sauce, mac n’ cheese, chili, lasagna, pulled pork or whatever you’re good at.
*We need chaffing dishes, let us know if you have one or two you can loan us.
Wine or Water A Gingerbread Fair favourite needs your contribution of a bottle of wine
or water. Please consider donating a bottle to keep the game going all night long.
Donated bottles are being collected in the front office now.
Vendors Do you have a small business or craft that you can showcase at the fair? For a
small fee you can set up shop at the Gingerbread Fair’s Market in the gym.
Get Crafty OOOPS parents are invited to donate crafts to sell at a Parents Craft table
within the marketplace. All proceeds raised at this table go directly to the school.
Raffle Contribution Every class will be assigned a theme for a basket to be raffled off.
Please help fill your class basket by contributing one item.
