Get ready for the Sunol Glen Spring Fling!

Ladies and Gentlemen, Elvis has entered the building! Be ready to rock and roll the night away at the upcoming Sunol Glen Spring Fling! which this year features a Las Vegas casino theme. The Sunol Glen Community Club is holding its annual spring fundraiser, at the Sunol Valley Golf Club on Friday, May 11 at 7 p.m. The Club is Sunol Glen School's parent/teacher organization, but also includes members of the community - many Sunol family members who have attended the school for multiple generations.
The Sunol Glen Community Club works closely with administration and staff to help bridge the gap between state funding for education and what is needed to provide a well-rounded and balanced education for students. It provides a large subsidy to help sustain the school's Art and Music programs. In addition to contributing to the arts, the Club supports the school garden, has donated over $5,000 this year to improve school technology, subsidizes field trips including 6th grade Science Camp, enhances classroom literacy, and each year provides classroom "wish list" funding for every grade level and elective teacher.
Contributions and support from the Community Club also cover the costs of other events for students throughout the year including the annual Scripps Spelling Bee, Earth Week celebrations, book fairs, Heroes' Day, and more.
The Spring Fling! evening includes a dinner of delectable hearty appetizers and wine. Entertainment will consist of casino games with prizes, a raffle and pictures with Elvis.
Funds will be raised through direct donations and an online/silent auction. There are many items that are already up for bid online - a Disneyland Hotel stay, a week-long stay at a condo in Lake Tahoe, tickets to Great America, and tickets to a San Jose Saber Cats game, to name just a few. The auction will conclude as a silent auction the night of the event.
For those unable to attend the event, but wanting to support the Community Club, an option of a flat donation is suggested. The Casino Night will provide the Community Club with nearly half of its operating budget for the coming year. The programs and activities that are supported by Community Club enrich the educational experience for all students at the small K-8 public school located in the heart of Sunol.
If you have an item or service you would like to donate to the event, contact Lisa Ball at (925) 862-0675 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets to the event are $50 per person and may be purchased online at www.sunolglen.dojiggy.com. You can also bid on auction items or make a donation online. The Sunol Glen Community Club is a 501(c) -3 charitable corporation. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law and all proceeds directly benefit the students.
