2012 Fall Fundraising!

      Start Date: TODAY!  
End Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2012
Book Price: $30 cash or check payable to GES PTA           
Credit for on-line orders placed until 12/31/12!

Our biggest fundraiser for the 2012/2013 school year starts now.
Every student has 1 Richmond Entertainment® coupon book to preview.

Send in $30 to purchase the book or return the book.
Make checks payable to GES PTA.  Additional books available immediately.

No obligation to take part in the fundraiser. You can just return the book. We get 50% profit. In lieu of a purchase, please consider a direct donation to the GES PTA to help fund this year’s planned activities. Details on ordering books from other areas are included in this packet.  Spread the word to friends and families in person, or e-mail, so we can meet or exceed this year’s goals. We would love to partner with business owners by providing a display and a few books for sale at your shop.  Please consider this.

These books can pay for themselves very quickly. Also, think of gifts for co-workers and relatives hard to buy for. Planning to vacation somewhere like Orlando before Nov.2013, order an Orlando book!
