Hello OFRS Parents!!
Old Farmers is bringing back our annual Tricky Tray! The event will take place in October/November 2022 (Date and venue TBD). A Tricky Tray, also known as a “Gift Basket Auction”, is a fundraiser designed to raise money while having a fun night out with our school community. During a Tricky Tray, participants purchase raffle tickets and place the tickets in canisters near prizes they hope to win. These prizes are items that have been donated by local businesses, chain restaurants, corporate stores, theme parks, sports teams, etc. The prizes range in price, value, and type.  Classes at every grade level will be asked to put together a themed basket to auction at our event. Stay tuned for communication from your classroom Parent with more information about this in September!

The OFRS PTA and entire school community are coming together to help organize this Tricky Tray event with the hopes of raising money to support our school and to enhance our children’s educational opportunities at school!

If you are interested in helping out with this event in any way, we ask that you fill out this form ASAP! https://forms.gle/LxnXdLr9ab5KFGpz5
Volunteering can be as simple as making a few phone calls. A lot of the support we need can be done from the comfort of your home. Every bit helps!
