October 1st marks the 2nd annual MatoskaFest fundraiser and Color Run. The committee is hard at work putting the finishes touches together to create another fun and family friendly event for the community.
MatoskaFest begins at 10am on Saturday with a Color Run. Didn't register? No worries, you can just show up and register the morning of the event and take part in the fun. After everyone has crossed the finish line, join us behind school (playground side) and in the gym for approximately 20 games and activities and 5 bounce houses. Each game or bounce house will require 1, 2 or 3 punches. You can purchase punch cards (10 punches) for $5 at the event, as well as unlimited bounce house wrist bands for $10. It's not too late to pre-order the punch cards and wrist bands, just simply return the form you got from your child's teacher by Thursday of this week.
Some of the games you will enjoy at MatoskaFest include a High Striker to test your strength, pumpkin bowling, Minute to Win It, cupcake walk, gunny sack races and a Haunted House created by our very own 5th grade class. Play the games to win prizes then take a break and grab a burger or hot dog and some caramel apples while you chat with friends.
Before you head out, don't forget to check out the basket raffle. Take your chances on some pretty awesome baskets with items donated from Matoska Families. Just purchase the number of tickets you'd like to drop in the bags (cash only, it's the law) and make your choices wisely! The basket themes include Family Fun Night, Winter Fun, WBL Spirit and the ever popular Lego baskets. While you wait for the basket raffle tickets to be drawn, check out the silent auction. Some of the amazing auction items this year include a cabin weekend getaway, a photography session from 1st grade teacher Adina To, $100 gift card to Pinz and 2 climbing wall sessions for 11 kids with Mr. Butters! You don't want to miss out on all of the other amazing items we have up for auction.
AND, don't forget to get your raffle tickets in if you want a chance to win the 50 inch tv, kindle fire or $50 gift certificate to Scholastic Books. We are collecting them until Thursday and will be drawing the winners on Friday evening.
So, grab your kids, your friends and head on out to Matoska for a fun filled afternoon of games, food and community building. We look forward to seeing you there!
