2016 Raffle Income Distributed to Schools
Of the more than $120,000 raised for Basalt public schools at the 2016 Taste of Basalt, more than $16,000 went directly to BES, BMS and BHS via raffle ticket sales. Here’s how much each school raised and how the schools are planning to use that money:
BES: $9,600 for Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES) programming.
BMS: $3,300 to support a variety of student programming, such as supplemental band instruction for 5th graders; the new Tech Squad flex class for 7th and 8th graders; and homework help on Wednesdays.
BHS: $4,000 distributed among classes and student clubs that sold tickets to earn money for their organizations, from Student Leadership Council and Spirit Team to Boys’ Soccer and Band.
