2014 Raffle Ticket Income Distributed to Schools
In addition to raising nearly $100,000 for Basalt public schools at the 2014 Taste of Basalt, the Basalt Education Foundation offered the schools the opportunity to sell raffle tickets and earn 100 percent of the income raised from those sales. Here’s how much each school raised and how the schools are planning to use that money:
BES: $8,600 for ACES programming
BMS: $5,000 to help equip the new maker space with learning activities, provide professional development for staff, fund classroom celebrations to promote Habits of a Scholar, and/or purchase book sets for classrooms.
BHS: $2,000 for the Student Leadership Council class to distribute equally among all four grades to use for key class events such as prom and graduation, or for student school improvement projects
We’re delighted to see the entire community—from elementary students to parents to school administrators—rally around our mission: to raise funds to enhance education in the Basalt public schools.
