ButterBraid and Fruit/Cheesecake Fundraisers

The CTPO has officially begun the next fundraisers: ButterBraids and Citrus Fruits/Cheesecake. The brochures and order forms were sent home with students this week, and additional forms can be picked up in the GBN Choir Room.

All money and order forms must be turned in by November 15th. Please keep the ButterBraid orders separate from the Fruit/Cheesecake. Cash and checks are accepted (checks made out to CTPO), and online ordering is also available for the fruit.

All fruits, cheesecakes, and ButterBraids will be distributed on December 6th between 3:15-5:00 PM in the Staff Cafeteria. This date and time is MANDATORY for anyone who sold items. Because we are dealing with fresh food and have no storage available, all items MUST be picked up on this date. If your student is sick or unable to come at this time, someone else must pick up on their behalf.

If you have questions, please contact the CTPO. Happy fundraising!
